Coffee rubbed pork chops

Lynnda Cloutier


while you might think the ground would be grainy and strong, you'll be pleasantly surprised to learn that they melt in just like all the other spices. The earthy flavor is like nothing else and blends beautifully with garlic, onion, chili powder, and all the other staples of a good barbecue rub. When cooked on the chops, the grounds add a deep flavor hinting of coffee without overpowering the other ingredients in the rub. SourcE unknoWn
