This is a rub as opposed to a marinade, but I wouldn't use anything else on pork chops. It makes enough to be used many times. The recipe came from the food network via Charski.

Toasted Fennel Spice Rub

cup fennel seeds
1 tablespoon coriander seeds
1 tablespoon peppercorns
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
cup pure California chili powder
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Toast the fennel seeds, coriander seeds, and peppercorns in a small, heavy pan over medium heat. When the fennel begins to turn light brown, add the red pepper flakes and toss several times. Immediately turn the spice mixture out onto a plate to cool.

Grind the fennel, coriander, pepper, and chili flakes. Pour into a bowl and toss with the remaining ingredients.

Note: If you have an exhaust fan over your stove, turn it on before you start toasting the spices. Be careful not to inhale the fumes once you add the red pepper flakes.

Yield: 1 cup
