Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chunky orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 bone in center cut prok chops
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and sliced into wedges

Instructions

For the Marinade and Glaze:

Put the bourbon, molasses, honey, chipotle chili powder, garlic, orange marmalade, olive oil, rosemary, black pepper and salt into a blender or food processor.  Blend or process until smooth.

Place chops in a glass baking dish, reserve 1/3 cup of the marinade.  Pour the remaining marinade over the chops.  Cover and put in the refrigerator for 8 to 24 hours (24 hours for best results).

Once chops have marinated; remove from the refrigerator and let them sit out for 30 minutes.  Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking.  Remove the chops from the marinade, place in the hot skillet, and reduce the heat to medium.  Brown the chops for 3 to 5 minute per side.

Once the chops have browned, add the apple slices to the skillet with the pork, turn down the heat.  Pour reserved marinade over chops, cover and cook for another 5 minutes.
