  1. Make the glaze first: In a small saucepot, add sugar and water on medium-high heat, careful not to let it boil
  2. Once sugar has dissolved, add gochujang and gochugaru chili flakes, stirring until incorporated and the glaze thickens, set aside

  4. While skillet is getting up to temp, cover each pork chop with Espresso Rub, including the sides
  5. Cook two at a time, 4-5 minutes each side depending on thickness, or until chops temp to 145° F
