Recipe: Molasses and Coffee Pork Chops

When we saw this Food Network recipe, we knew it was going to quickly become a favorite dish. Take the traditional pork chop meal and add coffee to it! It’s a delicious win!

What you’ll need:

  •  6 ounces molasses, by weight (about 1/2 cup)
  •  2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  •  1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  •  2 cloves garlic, minced
  •  Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper29
  •  1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  •  6 to 8 sprigs fresh thyme
  •  4 6 -to-8-ounce bone-in pork chops (1 inch thick)

What you’ll need to do:

Start with a bit of prep work, which will be worth it when it’s done! Take a 1 gallon zip-top bag and add the coffee, molasses, vinegar, garlic, mustard, ginger, thyme, 1 teaspoon of the kosher salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and the pork chops. Securely seal the bag and shake to combine all ingredients. Place the bag into the refrigerator overnight or at least for 2 hours.

When you’re ready to cook, preheat your grill to medium-high and remove the pork chops from the bag. In a saucepan, pour in the marinade and let it gently boil over a medium-high heat, stirring for about 12 to 15 minutes. This should reduce it to 1/2 cup.

Remove the thyme stems and your marinade is ready.

For 3 to 4 minutes on each side, grill the pork chops. They should reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Don’t under cook the meat! Let them rest for 5 minutes. Now they’re ready to serve with the glaze! Enjoy!
