Deep, flavorful pork chops marinated in a smokey, coffee rub and pan fried until golden. Use freshly ground coffee for optimum flavour!



Pork Chops Ingredients:

  • 2 pork chops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil, to cook with

Rub Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp ground coffee
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper


  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley


  1. Prepare your seasoning by mixing all the rub ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Wash and pat dry the pork chops. Rub them on each side with the mixture. Make sure you cover them completely.
  3. If you have time, place the pork chops in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Take the pork chops out of the fridge and let them come to room temperature (approximately 30 minutes). Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
  5. Add the cooking oil to a skillet and heat to high heat.  Add the pork chops and cook them for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  6. Place the pan in the oven (or place the chops onto a baking pan) and let the pork chops cook for another 10 minutes in the oven.
  7. Let the meat rest for at least 10 minutes before enjoying.
