Grilled Pork Chops with Peaches and Bourbon Glaze
1/3 cup bourbon
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Freshly ground black pepper
2 French cut pork chops, about ¾ inch thick
2 peaches, sliced into 1 inch pieces
Combine bourbon, soy sauce, honey, oil, ginger, garlic and black pepper in a measuring cup. Place pork chops in a gallon sized plastic bag or plastic container. Add peaches and pour bourbon mixture over pork; marinate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat grill or grill pan. Remove pork from marinade and save. Place pork chops and peaches on grill and cook for about 6 minutes on each side. Meanwhile, pour reserved marinade in a sauce pot and boil for about 3 minutes. When pork is finished, pour sauce over pork and peaches.
