Espresso Rubbed Bone-in Pork Chops

Here’s a recipe we adapted just a bit, adding some smoke to the paprika for a deeper flavour experience. The original is from Blacklock, by Lodge, who makes a fantastic lighter weight triple seasoned cast iron grill pan that’s perfect for pork chops.

And we love the ease of the Prepara oil mister, which makes coating the grill pan a breeze.

Ingredients

  • Four pork chops, bone-in

Rub

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon pepper

  • ½ teaspoon cumin

  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder

  • ½ tsp ground coriander

  • Seasoning spray

  • Red chilies for garnish

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. 

Combine rub mixture in a small bowl. Coat pork chops with rub on all sides. 

Heat grill pan over medium high heat, 5–7 minutes. Spray grill pan with cooking oil and sear chops, 4 minutes. 

Add chilies, then flip the chops and place inside the oven to desired doneness, 8-10 min. Allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
