Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops – Capatriti

Spice-Rubbed Pork Chops

SPICE-RUBBED PORK CHOPS – Serves 2

Ingredients:

The Marinade

• 2 pork chops
• 1 tbsp. fresh ground pepper
• 1 tbsp. salt
• ¼ cup Capatriti® EVOO
• 8 sprigs of fresh thyme

The Rub

• 1 ½ tbsp. cumin
• 2 tbsp. paprika
• 1 tbsp. garlic powder
• 2 tbsp. mustard
• 1 tbsp. Capatriti® EVOO

Directions:

For cooking via water bath*:
Heat water to 140°F. Combine marinade ingredients in a Ziploc bag (or a vacuum sealed container). Seal the bag after half submerging in water. (The water pressure will force the oxygen out of the bag, creating a vacuum seal.) Cook for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, combine ingredients for the rub in a medium-sized bowl. Remove pork chops from plastic and pat dry. Toss and coat with rub. Heat frying pan to medium-high and sear on all sides (approx. 2 – 3 min. each). Share.
*For reverse sear: Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Place unmarinated pork chops in an oven safe dish. Cover with rub evenly and cook for 30 – 45 min. (Pork chop should register 140°F to 145°F.) Heat frying pan to medium-high. Add oil and thyme sprigs, and sear on all sides (approx. 2 – 3 min. each) Share.
