pumpkin and coffee spiced rubbed pork chop

• Prep Time: 1 hour  • Yields: 2 servings


1 pkg. Fossil Farms Berkshire Pork Bone- In Loin Chops, 2 ea. 13 oz.

2 tbsp. pumpkin spice ground

2 tbsp. Ancho Chile powder

2 tbsp. espresso-roast coffee beans, finely ground

1 tbsp. sweet paprika

1 tbsp. dark brown sugar

½ tbsp. dry mustard

½ tbsp. kosher salt

½ tbsp. freshly ground black pepper

½ tbsp. oregano, dried

½ tbsp. coriander, ground

1 tsp. ginger, ground

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

5 tbsp. olive oil



Measuring cups & spoons
Large bowl
Large skillet
Meat thermometer
Cutting board



1. Position an oven rack in the top third of the oven and preheat the broiler to 425°F.

2. Combine all the ingredients (besides pork) in a bowl and mix until all ingredients are incorporated.

3. Drizzle the pork chops with 2 tablespoons olive oil and evenly sprinkle the rub all over, patting to adhere.

4. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.

5. Heat a large cast-iron skillet or heavy oven-proof skillet over medium to high heat, and sear the pork chops.

6. There will be a bit of smoke, but the chops are not burning - it is just smoke from the spices in the rub.

7. Allow to sear for 2-3 minutes each side before transferring the skillet to the oven, broiling for 6 - 8 minutes or until done.

8. When ready, an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the pork should register 145°F.

9. Remove from oven and allow the pork to rest for 5 minutes before serving with green beans, salad and mash potatoes, or your favorite sides.

10. Enjoy!
