Pork Chops with 'Magic Dust' Recipe

Pork Chops with 'Magic Dust' Recipe
  • Meal

    Main Dish

  • Cusine


For the magic dust :

1/2 cup paprika

1/4 cup kosher salt

1/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons mustard powder

1/4 cup chile powder

1/4 cup ground cumin

2 tablespoons ground black pepper

1/4 cup granulated garlic

2 tablespoons cayenne


For the pork chops

4 thick-cut pork rib chops

1/2 cup magic dust

1 tablespoon canola oil


Combine the spices for magic dust in a sealable container and shake to combine and distribute. Rub 1/2 cup of the magic dust into all sides of the pork chops, and set aside. Prepare a grill to medium heat, or heat a ridged grill pan over medium heat. Using a paper towel and tongs, spread the canola oil over the grill grates or grill pan to prevent sticking. Grill the pork chops until well-caramelized on all sides and done to your liking, 3-5 minutes per side for medium, depending on thickness. Allow to rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.
