Peach-Mustard Pork Chops

Ingredients

  • 4 (1 1/2-inch thick) pork chops
  • Safflower or corn oil, for brushing
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Peach-Mustard BBQ Sauce, recipe follows

Prepare an outdoor grill with a high heat for both direct and indirect grilling. Position a drip pan under the grate on the cooler side of the grill.

Brush the pork chops on both sides with oil and season with salt and black pepper to taste. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Grill the chops over the heat until brown on both sides, about 4 minutes per side. Move them to the cool side of the grill and brush with some of the Peach-Mustard BBQ Sauce. Cook the chops, covered, turning and basting with sauce every 5 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted crosswise into the chops registers 140 degrees F, about 15 minutes more. Let rest for 10 minutes.

To serve: Drizzle the chops with more sauce and serve.

Peach-Mustard BBQ Sauce

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

2 tablespoons minced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

1/2 cup whole-grain mustard

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

3/4 cup peach jam or preserves

1 tablespoon bourbon

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the vinegar and boil until almost completely reduced and the mixture looks like wet sand, about 4 minutes. Whisk in both mustards and the jam or preserves. Simmer, whisking, until jam melts, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the bourbon and salt.

Cook’s Note: The bourbon is stirred in at the end–uncooked–to give a genuine jolt to the sauce. This Southern blend goes great with pork but is also a good finisher for chicken, duck, or veal.

Yield: about 1 1/4 cups

Clean the corn and get rid of excess silk

 Completely submerge the corn under water (you may need to find something heavy to keep it submerged)  Why Submerge?? This will add extra moisture for cooking them and because I said so!!!!  DO THIS ABOUT 15 MINUTES BEFORE COOKING!!!

 Remove from water and shake excess moisture from corn.

 Place on a med-high preheated grill and, now this is IMPORTANT….turn about every 3-4 minutes!! So, no going to chat with the guest, or leave the grill for a potty break…you do NOT want these to burn up!!!  (unless of course, you have your fire extinguisher close by!!!)

 The corn will start turning a nice colored brown and yes, maybe a flame or two will erupt, but no problemo…the soaking of them in water lets them steam inside!

 They will look almost burnt when they are done…about 15-20 mins.

 Now, take them from the grill, and don’t be an idiot by using your hands…these are HOT…!! Use tongs and put them on a platter or plate.  Then find either a dish towel or a clean rag and peel them like a banana…pulling off all the husk and making them look all nice and “purdy”!! You could be a real nice host and do it for your guest, or you can have them do it themselves and have a nice messy table…the choice is yours!!!

 Butter, salt and pepper…and you are good to go!!!!
