and result in some disappointing disasters! Thankfully, this time was a success as the chops were very flavorful and spicy, but not too spicy! And as you can see, I bought corn, not local corn as it is way too early, but I'm just so impatient for the fresh stuff that I couldn't wait! It will satisfy me for now, but I am really looking forward to some home grown corn!
1 Tbs. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. sugar
I used 6, 1 inch thick, boneless, pork loin chops ( bone in chops may be juicier)
Mix spices together and sprinkle on both sides of chops. Lay chops on a wax paper lined baking sheet and let set for 20 minutes or so, or you may do this step early in the day so that the pork can marinate, in the fridge, of course. I use a charcoal grill, so when the coals were covered in a light ash and, I placed the chops on the grill over the coals to sear the sides. These chops were grilled about 10 minutes each side, moving only if there was a flare up. The grilling time will depend on the thickness of the meat and the temperature of the grill, so cooking times will vary.
These chops can also be done indoors in a heavy skillet or grill pan and they turn out great! These are moist and very flavorful and I'll make these often. Enjoy!
