Coffee Marinated Pork Chops

At work the other day we were talking about encrusting coffee onto meats. I have done it (to pork chops) and my co-worker does it quite often. Her way is much better than my initial attempt. After some discussion of techniques, I asked, “Have you ever just marinated a pork chop in brewed coffee?” Everyone around replied they hadn’t. Then this was born.

I don’t claim it to be new. I even found some recipes online. What I didn’t like about them is that they didn’t just use coffee. They added molasses, ginger, and other seasons to it. I bet they are delicious also, but I wanted the coffee flavor to be the star in this. So it is. I never imagined it would turn out as delicious as it did. Simple and uncomplicated is often the most delicious in my opinion.
