The inspiration for this dish comes from an old booklet I bought when I was just starting my apprenticeship as a chef.

Good cookbooks were very expensive and I could not always afford them so I bought myself this little paperback booklet dedicated to “Western Cooking” meaning the fare of the cowboys and the Midwest.

Just recently while cleaning up some of my old stuff, in stored in boxes, I came across this little booklet and found a coffee rubbed recipe for pork chops in it. Although the recipe in the booklet was much simpler, I liked the taste and the general idea of it.

This is how, an amended version of it, I now use with pork chops for BBQ’s or as a rub when roasting a whole loin of pork, ended in our web based recipe collection. The recipe can be used for beef or chicken as well, although, I would then reduce the sugar content.

Spiced Coffee Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

  1. Combine all seasonings well.
  2. Lightly oil the pork chop, then sprinkle generously with the spiced coffee rub.
  3. Rub into the meat evenly and let rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Grill to your liking.

If you love your pork medium rare, you should cook it to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit (64 Celsius), followed by a three-minute rest. If you like your chops a little more done, you can cook them to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit (72 Celsius).

Note: If roasting a large joint of meat, rub the spiced coffee rub generously all over the meat and allow to marinate for at least 6-8 hours before roasting. This recipe is fantastic for BBQ’s and Grill parties.  Store leftover spice rub in an airtight jar, for the next BBQ.
