Ray Lampe's Coffee Rubbed Pork Chops Recipe | D'Artagnan


  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon coffee, finely ground
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 6 Berkshire Pork Rib Chops


  1. To make the rub, combine the salt, coffee, paprika, granulated garlic, and lemon pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. Season the pork chops evenly on both sides with the rub. Prepare the grill for cooking over direct medium-high heat. Place the chops directly on the cooking grate. Cook for 5 minutes. Flip and cook another 5 minutes for slightly pink and juicy, or to your desired degree of doneness. Remove to a platter and let rest for 4 minutes.

Recipe Note: This technique can also be used with our Berkshire Pork MilanesePorterhouse, or NY Strip Chops. Use an instant-read thermometer to gauge doneness.
