Recipe by CulinaryQueen
Printed in Good Food Magazine. Recipe from '333 Belrose Bar & Grill' in Wayne, PA. This flavorful dish has a rich coffee flavor with hints of sweet molasses and spicy chili. Begin marinating the pork one or two days ahead for best results. The mirin can be found in the Asian foods section of some supermarkets or at Japanese markets. Marinating time is NOT included in prep time.

This is an awesome dish. It is very moist and flavorful. The ingredient list can seem a bit daunting at first, but it is definately worth your time and the effort to find all of them! I marinated it for the full 48 hours and would do it again.
- 1⁄2 cup freshly ground coffee beans
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- 1⁄4 cup macadamia nuts, dry roasted
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup (the real stuff if possible)
