Grilled Pork Chop with Chocolate Chili Rub
Here's a very easy way to make a rub for pork chops with ingredients most kitchens have on hand.
Chocolate Chili Rub
Unsweetened cocoa powder (like Hershey's)
Five or 10 minutes before grilling --- sprinkle the pork chops with the cocoa powder, chili powder, cayenne, salt and pepper on both sides. Then rub about teaspoon of brown sugar into each chop, half on each side. Then drizzle some olive oil on the chops. Let them sit until time to grill.
Grill as usual, watching that you don't let them burn due to the brown sugar.
We served them with grilled peaches, sauteed yellow beans, and ripe tomatoes with soft cheese and basil.
A delicious easy summer meal.
