The blackberry butter is a wonderful addition to this grilled pork chop dish. It adds a flavorful component to a fresh off the grill chop. Serve with grilled vegetables or an aromatic herb risotto.

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 pork loin chops
  • For rub:
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
