These are not old fashion pork chops, these are pork chops marinated in the ingredients for Matt's favorite cocktail, an Old Fashioned. Sometimes I feel like you can't really taste the flavors of a marinade in the finished meat, but that is not the case with this one. It's not they they are over-powering, instead you can taste the different components and how well they compliment the pork. I don't particularly like to drink bourbon, but apparently I really love it on pork. Plus, no dry pork here, these chops came out juicy even thought a little more well cooked than we planned.
"Old Fashioned" Pork Chops
1/4 c orange juice
1/4 c bourbon
couple dashes of bitters
2 boneless, double-cut pork chops
salt and pepper
Mix the juice, bourbon and bitters together. Pour in a ziplock bag and add chops. Seal getting as much air out as possible. Marinate in the fridge for 4 - 6 hours.
Remove the chops from the marinade. Season with salt and pepper. Grill to desired doneness.
Makes 2 servings.
