Coffee-Molasses Marinated Pork Chops Recipe

Coffee-Molasses Marinated Pork Chops

1 cup strong brewed coffee

¼ cup molasses

6 fresh thyme springs

1 Tbsp. cider vinegar

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

2 garlic cloves, minced

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning

½ tsp. ground ginger

4 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick)

In a large bowl, combine first nine ingredients.  Pour ½ cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork chops.  Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate at least 2 hours.  Cover and refrigerate remaining coffee mixture until ready to cook.

For glaze, place remaining coffee mixture in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to about ½ cup.

Drain and discard marinade.  Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat grill rack.  Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 inches from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145 F.  Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.  Spoon glaze over chops.        4 serving
