Ancho Rubbed Pork Chops

Ancho Rubbed Pork Chops with Sour Cream

These were a real treat — both to make, and to eat. The prep is so easy it’s almost embarrassing!

Combine the following to make a spice rub: chili powder, ancho chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, freshly ground black pepper, a few shakes of coarse salt. Rinse and pat dry the pork shops, then sprinkle both sides generously with the spices mixture, rubbing into the meat so it adheres nicely. Be sure to coat them generously with the spice rub — that’s what makes for a beautiful crust.

Very lightly grease a hot iron skillet with bacon fat and cook pork chops until done (these chops were fairly thin, so it took about 7 minutes per side). Serve with a generous dollop of sour cream.
