Best BBQ Pork Chops Marinated with Coffee and Brown Sugar

It is BBQ season! Which is one of my favorite seasons because barbecuing is a fast method of cooking. And I get enjoy the sunshine while cooking outdoors. Also, the sounds of my children (whom I love) are a bit farther away than when cooking indoors. A bit of (almost) silence is always welcome in this crazy life of raising four children.

These coffee and brown sugar marinated BBQ pork chops are my go to for a quick and frugal meal. They are also absolutely delicious! But that is to be expected because they are made with coffee. And coffee is this Mom’s best friend. Due to the brown sugar and smoked paprika in the marinade, you end up with a perfectly smoky, sweet and caramelized pork chop. Utterly drool worthy!

How to Serve BBQ Pork Chops

To serve these BBQ pork chops , I suggest any grilled vegetables. My go to are mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes and cloves of garlic. I have a grill basket that I throw them in with olive oil, some balsamic vinegar and salt, then I BBQ them at the same time my pork chops are on. I also love to serve pork with green beans – it is a very quick and easy side dish that does not require any prep. A perfect carb side dish for this would be a warm potato salad or mashed potatoes (for a low carb substitute try my roasted cauliflower mash).

“Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Romans 8:26-28
