Great for Dinner, Main Course
Recommended Wine Pairing
4 Double Cut, Bone-in Pork Chops
1 cup Maple Syrup
2 oz Brewed Espresso or Very Strong Coffee, room temperature
1 oz Calabrian Chilies, chopped
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Set your grill for direct, high-heat cooking.
Set a roasting rack over a metal sheet tray and place pork chops on top.
Season generously with salt and pepper and allow to temper while preparing the glaze.
In a small bowl, combine maple syrup, coffee, and Calabrian chilies and mix thoroughly.
When ready to cook, brush a small amount of the glaze on one side of each raw pork chop.
Place on your grill, glazed side down, and cook for 2 minutes.
Brush a small amount of glaze on the raw side of the pork chops, flip, cook for 2 minutes, and glaze the side now facing up.
Repeat this flip, glaze, and cook 2-3 more times, or until pork is cooked to the desired doneness, 135°F for medium.
Remove from grill and transfer to a clean plate or sheet tray and allow to rest for at least 5 minutes. Serve immediately with your favorite sides.
