Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops

I think the below recipe might be Paula Deen's one and only healthy recipe. Anyone who has ever made a Paula recipe (or just watched her cooking show) knows that she loves butter, cream, oil and more butter. Brady made these bourbon glazed pork chops this week and not only were they shockingly healthy but they were super easy and tasted great. I believe that Brady even deemed this his new favorite pork chop recipe. We served the pork chops with a great roasted cauliflower side dish which has definitely taken the title of my new favorite cauliflower recipe :)

Bourbon Glazed Pork Chops
** from Food Network, recipe by Paula Deen

Serves 2
Prep/Cook Time: 30 minutes

2 T. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. packed dark brown sugar
1 T. bourbon
2 center cut boneless pork chops
1 clove garlic, minced
garlic powder

Preheat oven to 450.

In a small bowl, combine a little bit of salt, pepper and garlic powder. Set aside.

In another small bowl, combine the mustard, brown sugar, and bourbon. Rub the pork chops with the minced garlic, the salt/pepper/garlic seasoning, and half of the glaze.

Heat a large grill pan over medium high heat. Coat with cooking spray. Place the chops on the grill. Grill about 4 minutes on each side and then move the pan to the oven to finish cooking the chops for an additional 5-7 minutes (or until no longer pink). Top the pork chops with the remaining glaze before serving.
