Recipe adapted from mycolombianrecipes.com
- 4 x (approx 1kg) bone-in, thick-cut pork chops
- Salt, to taste
- Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 4 tablespoons freshly ground coffee
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon chilli powder
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- In a small bowl mix the coffee, brown sugar, paprika, chilli powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
- Season the pork chops with salt & pepper, then cover with ground coffee mixture.
- Preheat oven to 450°. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large oven-proof skillet. Cook pork chops until beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes. Turn and cook until second side is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Keep turning chop every 2 minutes until both sides are deep golden brown, 10-12 minutes total.
- Transfer skillet to oven and roast chops, about 15 minutes, turning every 2 minutes to prevent them from browning too quickly, until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into centre of meat registers 135°. The pork chop will continue to cook when it’s resting.
