I know I want sirloin chops for dinner but don't know how to cook them so they are healthy yet flavorful. Any ideas? What do you usually use as a side dish? I am making brown rice for myself, but DH hates rice

Thanks

i guess the healthiesty way to cook anything is to leave it as closely natural as you can. i would put a little salt, pepper, basil and just grill it.
maybe some steamed brocilli on the side

When you say "Sirloin Chops" I assume you mean bone- in pork. Right?
Best/ healthiest way?
Grilling.
An alternative of getting a healthy, but good tasting grilled chop...marinate in low fat dressing (italian, raspberry etc) for at least 1/2 hour (the longer- the better).
Preheat grill to medium temp, and put the chops on the grill.
Grilling is the most healthiest way (alongside the George Forman grill), because the existing fat melts and drips away, while still giving it flavor and moisture it needs to stay juicy.
I keep telling my customers NOT to start off with a lean piece of meat, especially for the grilling purpose.
All it does is dry out even more, since it has no fat resource to stay juicy during the cooking process.
Excess fat can be trimmed off, but only AFTER the cooking process. (Or before, if there is a rediculous amount remaining on the meat)
Most meat markets/ companies have the 1/8th of an inch trim rule for surface / outside fat.
Steamed or poached veggies on the side will complement just about any meal, and is the healthiest way to go.
The LESS you handle/ cook the veggies, the less you will destroy any vitamines, minerals, acids.
Hope this will help you of getting some ideas......

As long as they were yummy....LOL.
I'm happy for you, that they turned out so good.
Nothing worse then a "blah" piece of meat, and turning out tough ontop of it....yuck.
