Last week we found a really good deal on pork chops. Since then, I've been on the hunt for a tasty marinade or rub. I found this Carolina Rub recipe and it really hit the spot. It's very flavorful without being super spicy (the hubster appreciates that). I know we'll use this again on pork and other types of meat.
Pork Chops with Carolina Rub
from: Culinary in the Desert (adapted from CL)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 center-cut pork loin chops
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
In a small bowl, whisk together garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, paprika, chili powder, pepper, and salt. Rub spices all over pork chops and let sit 10-15 minutes.
Place pork on a lightly oiled grill rack. Grill 4 minutes on first side and then flip over to grill 2 minutes on the other side. Brush each chop with 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, and grill 2 minutes or until desired degree of doneness.
