This is in total keeping with my theme of quick, easy and incredible meals lately! Marc and I have both been super busy with meetings, rehearsals, and everything else in the evening and these quick meals have been life savers. I had pork chops in my freezer that I wanted to use, and decided to sear them in a super flavorful dry rub to make these amazing coffee crusted pork chops. The coffee just makes the dry rub. I am a caramel macchiato addict so that was the ground coffee flavor I had on hand. It was perfectly sweet to counterbalance the smokey heat of the rest of the dry rub.
I generously coated my pork chops in that gorgeous rub, then got them into my hot cast iron skillet. I let them brown for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
Once they had seared on both sides, I transferred the coffee crusted pork chops to the oven for 5 minutes. This was just to make sure that they were completely cooked through, which is incredibly important when dealing with pork. When they were done, I let them rest for a couple of minutes so that they stayed juicy. Then they were ready to serve! I plated them with broccoli and little bowls of apple sauce on the side and it was such an incredible meal. Best of all I had these coffee crusted pork chops done and on the table in 20 minutes! Enjoy this quick and amazing dish my friends.
