Coffee Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Skeptical of this strange combination? Well, don't be. It adds beautiful color and a subtle flavor. The coffee is not over powering and goes well with the chili powder and brown sugar. Try it at your next cook-out!
Mix all of the rub ingredients together well in a small bowl.
Generously rub the dry rub into the pork chops and then allow the chops to sit on the counter for about 20 minutes while you get the grill ready.
Light the grill and heat to about medium high heat.
Grill it up--
Place the pork chops on the grill. For thinner cuts, 1 inch or less, grill them over direct heat with the lid open. They should cook rather quickly, about 5 – 8 minutes per side (depending on the temperature of the grill obviously). For thicker cuts, grill with a little lower heat and close the lid. The same times should apply, but you may need to go longer. You can check the doneness using a pair of tongs. The more firm the meat is, the more it has cooked through.
Remove the pork chops from the grill and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into them.
