Molasses and Coffee Pork Chops


  • 1 cup brewed coffee, strong
  • 6 oz molasses
  • 1 tbs dijon mustard
  • 2 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 4 8 oz bone-in pork chops
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger


1. Combine coffee, molasses, mustard garlic, vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, thyme, ginger, and pork chops together in one zip lock bag. Seal well and shake to combine. Marinate in fridge for 2 hours.

2. Preheat your grill to medium to high heat. Remove your pork from the bag and pour the marinade into a saucepan over medium to high heat. Allow sauce to boil gently, stirring occasionally for 12-15 minutes.

3. Grill pork chops on each side for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until internal temperature has reached 145. Let pork chops rest a few minutes, then top with glaze.
