Whiskey Glazed Pork Chops and Grilled Peaches

25 Apr

I made this on Saturday night. My husband was thrilled I was making something with his drink of choice. Whiskey.

After his first bite, he named this recipe “Party Boy Pork Chops.” I’m pretty sure that’s a good thing.

I’m not a huge fan of whiskey…. but I really liked this grilled pork chop! You can taste the whiskey, but itΒ pairs nicely with the grilled peaches. I was bummed my grocery store didn’t have fresh peaches, so I substituted canned peaches. I think it turned out better — the peaches were so sweet!

This was the perfect meal to eat on a Saturday night. I was happy to use my grill and infuse some booze into our meal.

I learned if I ever need to sweet talk my hubby, I don’t need to talk… just serve him some Party Boy Pork Chops and I’m sure he won’t be able to tell me no. πŸ™‚

Whiskey Glazed Pork Chops and Grilled Peaches

  • 1/3 cup whiskey
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tbs low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 4 pork chops
  • 2 peaches, halved (or 1 can of halved peaches)

Directions

  1. Mix the whiskey and the next 7 ingredients in a bowl. Transfer about 6 tablespoons of the marinade to a small microwave bowl. Add pork chops and peaches to the remaining marinade. Let it sit for 30-60 minutes.
  2. Grill pork chops and peaches. Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until the pork is done.
  3. Warm up the remaining marinade in the microwave for 90 seconds. Spoon over pork chops and peaches.
  4. If you want an additional side — saute up some spinach in olive oil and sprinkle in some almonds. Just when the spinach starts to wilt, take spinach off the heat and add a little lemon juice to the spinach.

      I know, I know. I’m not much of a hard booze girl anymore. All I drink is wine & beer.
