A Homestyle Dinner with a Twist

A Homestyle Dinner with a Twist

Slightly twisted, like everything in Asylum

Coffee Coated Pork ChopsOk, this will be my first post on Fextralife! I’m going to give you 3 great recipes to make yourself a whole dinner in approximately an hour. Coffee Crusted Pork Chops paired with Seasoned Mashed Potatoes and some Roasted Veggies! Remember that when you make this you should start off with your potatoes first! Boiling them is usually a time consuming and annoying process but while they’re boiling you can prep your chops, cut your veggies and get that oven heated up!

Now for drinks….I’m a beer guy myself so I always pair a nice dark beer with this. Guinness Extra Stout, Oatmeal Stouts or Killians Irish Stout work alright. As it is the Fall season though I would probably go with Shipyard Pumpkinhead as it goes very nicely with the coffee crusted chops. When winter comes around though the absolute perfect beer for this meal is of course…Kona’s Pipeline Porter. This is a dark roasted coffee beer that is unbelievably creamy and explodes with a warm taste of freshly brewed coffee. If you like wines….heh you’re out of luck cause I have no idea what kind of wines to pair with this.

Hope this recipe is as delicious for you as it is for me! Grilling is my favorite cooking method so I prefer that to pan searing.

P.S. Take the coffee crust ingredients and rub them over a pork roast! Add the coffee crust to your favorite gravy for an extra twist on your next meal! For coffee enthusiasts this is a wide and versatile rub that even works on Poultry and Beef (though not as well).

    I like that recipes have become a bit of a staple for this site. I’ll be honest, when I first heard about it going up I never would have expected that to be the case.
