What is better than a pork chop? A Tomahawk Pork Chop! I have only heard of Tomahawk steaks but these pork chops are a big fat YES! They have an extra layer of flavor from the fat and the bone that is out of this world.

Sourcing Quality Meat

After doing some research on online butchers during the first lock down I discovered Sherwood Foods, a more high end Butcher service providing us everyday people access to restaurant quality meats for online purchase. It’s the quality of meat for me.

They specialize in Pork, Beef and Chicken and the best part is all the meat is locally sourced within the UK and Next day delivery!

To Note, the Tomahawk Pork chops were really affordable and came in 2 bone which is enough for 2. They also have a 5 bone and 10 bone cut for larger portions.

Making the Coffee Rub

To be honest this was just going to be an experiment. I believe in mixing sweet, salty and robust flavors together and the end result of this rub was a beautiful combination of just that.

In addition, the coffee and brown sugar add a lovely glaze once the pork has seared in the pan and the sage is so fragrant also pairing well with the additional flavors. You can’t go wrong with this rub and it will also be good on other meats especially beef.

Searing the Pork chops

Here’s a quick tip:

  • Pork is a temperamental meat because if its fried or grilled too long it can dry out easily. Since these chops are pan seared with no gravy its key to cook them for a 10 minutes on each side ten let them rest.
  • Once removed from the heat the meat continues to cook so no need to worry if its cooked long enough.
  • For Thicker chops check out this article from The Takeout where they cover how to reverse sear chops. Ill be trying this next.

Alternatives

Tomahawk meat is not something easily found in a supermarket. If your in the UK and Europe I highly recommend purchasing from Sherwood Foods or at least a good local butcher who specializes in quality cuts. Buying Classic Chops work just as well or try the coffee rub with steak or Chicken.
