Grilled Scotch Chops

     When I decided to make this recipe, I thought we had bourbon. That is what David Zinczenko said to use in his recipe. The day came to make it, and I found that we only had scotch but no bourbon (I feel like that should be some kind of country song). I guess the hubs was feeling a little crazy that day. So, the recipe became scotch chops instead. I think they would be great with bourbon, but they are amazing with scotch!
      I wish I would have made some different sides. The mac n' cheese just didn't seem to fit with such a "fancy" meat. This is what it means to live and eat with a two year old...fancy meat for mom and dad; mac n' cheese for everyone.

1/3 cup scotch (or bourbon)
1/4 cup honey
3 Tbl soy sauce
1 Tbl brown sugar
1 Tbl olive oil
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp black pepper
pork chops (or chicken)

  • Mix the booze, honey, soy sauce, sugar, oil, ginger, and peppers in a large bowl. Set aside about 1/4 cup of the marinade.
  • Add chops to the rest of the marinade and toss to coat. 
  • Grill.
  • Nuke the remaining marinade on high for about 90 seconds and spoon over the chops.
