Bourbon-sauced pork chops

I love pork chops, but every now and then I need to try something new with them.  I found this recipe a couple of years ago, and whenever we need something a little bit different, we make these.  Enjoy!

Bourbon-Sauced Pork Chops

Adapted from Better Homes & Gardens, July 2012
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1/3 cup bourbon
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 trimmed pork chops, about 4 ounces each

Directions:
1. For marinade, combine bourbon, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and pepper. Pour over pork chops in a sealed bag or container. Marinate pork chops in the fridge for 4-6 hours before cooking.

2. Remove chops from marinade, reserve marinade.

3. For a gas or charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 14 to 16 minutes or until 145 degrees F when tested with an instant-read thermometer or pink just in the center, turning once halfway through grilling.

4. While chops are grilling, prepare sauce. In a small saucepan, bring reserved marinade to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup or until slightly thickened and bubbly.
