Pork Chops with MCR

edited October 2013 in EggHead Forum

The pork chops were marked as porterhouses or something like that. About 1.25" thick - not quite Iowa cut, but they were good. Would have preferred them at 145°F but have to make do with 165°F for the time being. Did them raised indirect at around 400°F in the large. Made spaghetti squash too. The things on top of the chop are whole flash baked or something garlic cloves - I love them, but SWMBO doesn't love me after I've eaten a few :D

Finally got around to making Mickey's Coffee Rub and we really liked it. Used 'San Antonio Chili Powder' from HEB since it had some cumin, oregano and other stuff in it. Added extra cayenne too, since we like the extra heat. Its an awesome rub on pork, and can't wait to try it on chicken or beef. Thanks @Mickey !

    Thanks.  I was likely picking those chops up the same time you were buying your steaks :)

    Nice cook! Did the rub taste like coffee? Not a big coffee fan here but I want to try it.

    Nope.  Pretty balanced flavor just a slight  bit sweet.  I'll add more cayenne and some jalapeno powder next time for more heat.  Maybe  some cumin if I'm  using it on beef.

    I've gone through about 32oz of the stuff. It doesnt taste like coffee at all. I totally agree with Caliking, add a little heat and its the perfect rub. I really like the color it adds to chicken.

    Speaking of Mickey, where is he? Are they limiting computer time at the home cause the codgers are surfing bad stuff?

    Not sure. He gets more and more unpredictable as he gets closer to retirement. I think he actually ate a salad a few weeks ago.

    @RAC: get this brand of instant espresso -

    The granules are fine and even (as opposed to the crystal-like granules of other instant coffees), so it works great for making rub. The granules mix evenly throughout the rub. I found it at HEB, in the coffee & tea section.

    The brown sugar I used was super moist. I put two huge desiccant packs in the jar but it still caked badly.

    I suggest trying to find some dry powder style brown sugar.

    @b0atnutz: This is the version that @Mickey usually posts (where is he BTW???)

    "Coffee Rub (turkey, chicken, beef & pork) Equal part: Instant Expresso Ground coffee Equal part: Brown Sugar ½ part: Black Pepper ½ part: Kosher Salt ½ part: Garlic Powder ¾ part: Ancho Chili Powder Don't worry on exact, just close on measurement. I used to use turbinado sugar but we like with brown better. This is pulled from MollyShark, Hungry Man, & Richard In Fl then tweaked. I find the ancho chili powder is far less expensive in the bulk spice area than the bottled area ( have used both light or dark version). I make it starting with a half cup Instant Expresso Ground coffee and work from there as it seems to store well if sealed."

    I used some chili powder and cayenne instead of ancho. It needs more heat for my taste, which I'll take care of with the next batch.
