Ingredients

  • 4 antibiotic-free ½- to 1-inch-thick pork chops (try Simple Truth brand)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces dark chocolate–chili bar (if not available, a bar of dark chocolate will work)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coffee
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

Instructions

  • Heat grill to 400° using the indirect cooking method (see “Direct or Indirect Heat?”).
  • Season pork with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Place chocolate, salt, coffee and chili powder in a food processor. Pulse until it’s a dense, coarse blend that resembles cookie crumbs.
  • Set pork on the live-flame section of grill, and grill for 3 minutes on each side.
  • Transfer pork to cool section of the grill.
