Bourbon-Glazed Pork Chops

Yield Makes 6 servings
Pork chops go tipsy soaked in a bourbon mixture then grilled to perfection. The leftover marinade is boiled then added to the chops just before plating.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 (1-inch-thick) bone-in pork chops

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 6 ingredients in a shallow dish or large zip-top plastic bag; add pork chops. Cover or seal, and chill 30 minutes, turning once.

  2. Remove pork from marinade, reserving marinade.

  3. Grill pork, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) about 10 to 12 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 160°, turning once.

  4. Bring reserved marinade to a boil in a small saucepan, and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes. Pour over chops before serving.
