Recipe adapted from


  • 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



  1. In a small bowl mix the coffee, brown sugar, paprika, chilli powder, garlic powder and onion powder.
  2. Season the pork chops with salt & pepper, then cover with ground coffee mixture.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
