Maple-Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops
If pork chops are a common menu item at your dinner table, tonight is the night to give the recipe an unexpected twist. You don’t need lots of time or ingredients for Maple-Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops, and the unusual flavor combination is a winner for everyone.
Cook the pork chops most of the way in oil in a sauté pan, then move them to the simmering glaze to finish cooking.
Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high. Add chops and brown on both sides, about 10 minutes total. Remove chops from pan and keep warm.
Add shallots to pan and sauté 1 minute.
Off heat, deglaze pan with bourbon, scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Return pan to heat and add peaches and maple syrup.
Bring to a boil and simmer until glossy, 5 minutes. Return chops to pan to heat through. Chops are done when an instant-read thermometer registers 145°.
Remove chops from pan, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Serve chops with peaches and glaze.
