    A recipe from Brazil. It sounds weird, but trust me, it is tasty!

    Ingrediants:

    Thick, boneless pork chops, like from Costco
    Brazilian coffee beans, freshly ground, not too fine a grind
    Kosher salt
    Olive Oil

    Hardware:

    Cast iron frying pan
    Shallow bowl

    Cover bottom of frying pan with oil, about 0.25 inches deep or so
    Heat frying pan over medium high heat (may have to add some more oil when cooking)
    Put coffee in shallow bowl
    Coat chops with oil from bottle
    Sprinkle both sides of chops liberally with salt then dredge in coffee until all sides are completely covered with ground coffee
    Lay coffee coated chops in hot oil in pan
    Cook as you would breaded pork chops, turning evenly, until cooked through, per meat thermometer
    Allow to rest a couple of minutes, then enjoy!

    Coffee pork chops?

    Hmmm.

    Does the Kosher salt make the chops Kosher? :)

    Only Brazil would come up with this.

    I have to say, when my Brazilian wife told me what she was making I was...um...unenthusiastic. ;K But, I had promised her when we married I would always try everything once.

    This was fantastic! Nice and crispy coating and it is even Atkins/South Beach friendly! LOL

    You can't skimp on the kosher salt, but the coffee coating tastes great!
