Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup good bourbon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 pork chops, around an inch thick, bone in or boneless works

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together Bourbon, oil, brown sugar, garlic powder, soy sauce, salt and pepper until well combined.

  2. Place pork chops in a plastic zipper bag (or a bowl)  and pour the marinade in. 

  3. Seal and move the chops around a bit to make sure they're fully covered.

     

  4. Refrigerate for around 2-4 hours (It won't hurt them to go longer but 2-4 hours is the ideal amount of time).

  5. Remove from the refrigerator 15-20 minutes prior to grilling.

  6. Spray the grill with olive oil cooking spray and preheat the grill to medium high heat.

  7. Place meat on the grill and discard leftover marinade. 

  8. Cook for 5-6 minutes per side, turning once (this time will vary based on your grill and the thickness of the meat so keep an eye on it).

  9. Remove the meat to a clean plate and tent with foil. Rest for 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
