So every Thursday, I have decided to try a new recipe with my family, and share it will all my fellow bloggers. I will comment on the post to say how we liked or disliked the recipe. It would be awesome if you would try it with me, or after me, and tell me how your family liked it! Like I said, I plan on doing this every Thursday, but I am already off to a bad start. Surprise right!?! I forgot to marinade my porkchops, soooo this weeks Try it With me
Thursday will be Friday. I'll try and get it right next week.
Molasses Coffee Marinated Porkchops
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown, 2009
1 cup cool strong coffee
6 ounces molasses, by weight
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
6 to 8 sprigs fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (6 to 8-ounce) bone-in, 1-inch thick pork chops
Place all of the ingredients into a 1-gallon zip top bag, seal, and shake to combine. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Remove the pork chops from the marinade. Transfer the marinade to a small saucepan and place over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-high, and boil gently, stirring often, until reduced to about 1/2 cup liquid, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the thyme stems after the glaze has reduced. Meanwhile, grill pork chops 3 to 4 minutes per side or until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Allow the pork chops to rest 4 to 5 minutes before serving with the glaze
