  • 1 dash canola oil enough to just coat the cast iron skillet
  • 3 tablespoons ground coffee (I like a sweet flavor here like caramel macchiato)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 4 whole center cut pork chops bone-in or boneless are both fine
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Then heat up the canola in a big cast iron skillet over medium high heat. While the pan gets hot stir the coffee, salt, chili powder, paprika, and cumin together thoroughly in a bowl. Take the four pork chops and generously rub the mixture all over them on both sides.
  2. Get the crusted pork chops into the pan to sear on the first side for 3-4 minutes to let them get gorgeously brown. Then flip them over to brown on the other side for another 3-4 minutes. Then carefully transfer the pan to the oven to make sure they completely get cooked through for about 5 more minutes.
  3. Take the pan out once the pork chops are done and let them rest for a couple of minutes, then serve immediately and enjoy!
