Bacon Wrapped Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops
Bacon Wrapped Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops are a fancy way to celebrate something special at home. Bourbon, brown sugar, soy sauce and more.
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 1/8 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup bourbon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 3 Tbsp. ketchup
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 4 bacon wrapped pork loin chops
Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Saute for 2 minutes. Add bourbon, brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and ketchup and whisk to combine. Bring to a heavy simmer and cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. It should coat the back of a spoon.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add remaining olive oil and pork chops to the pan. Once browned on the first side, flip then brush with bourbon glaze. Flip again and glaze second side. Because the glaze has brown sugar it in it can burn easily so make sure the heat doesn't get too high in the pan. Cook until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting.
