Tennessee Whiskey Pork Chops Recipe
- 4 center cut pork chops (1-inch bone in)
- ½ cup Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey
- ½ cup apple cider
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 4 teaspoons cider vinegar (divided)
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Salt and pepper
- 2 teaspoons cooking oil
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- In a medium size, bowl mixes together the whiskey, apple cider, 2 teaspoons of vinegar, mustard, cayenne pepper, and vanilla.
- Place the pork chops in a 1-gallon zip lock bag, pour in the ¼ cup of the whiskey mixture, seal the bag, and work the pork chops through the solution. Refrigerate for 1 – 2 hours; flipping the bag occasionally. Set the remaining whiskey mixture aside.
- Remove the pork chops from the bag and pat them dry using paper toweling; salt and pepper the chops. (Discard brine used to marinade)
- In a large skillet using the oil brown the chops on both sides. (About 4 minutes on each side) place the chops on a plate and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
- Pour the reserved whiskey solution into the skillet, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium. Cook until mixture is reduced, and kind of syrupy, to form a glaze. Pour any juices that are collected from the chops into the skillet. Add the butter and remaining 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar. Continue cooking until the glaze is thick and sticky.
- Place the chops back in the skillet and flip to coat chops with the glaze. Flip several times while cooking. Cook to a temperature of 145F.
- Serve with the sauce over the top.
