Dinner Tonight: Pork Chops With Bourbon-Laced Teriyaki Sauce
Bourbon in a teriyaki sauce? Really? I would have passed this recipe up real quick had a.) it not come from Saveur, a magazine whose motto is "Savor a World of Authentic Cuisine," and b.) had I not really needed an excuse to buy more bourbon.
Good thing, too. Although this recipe was created as a covering for roast chicken, it was an absurdly easy coating for my thick-cut pork chops. Under the broiler, the teriyaki sauce caramelized on the chops, creating a luscious weeknight meal. Plus, I only needed a tablespoon of the bourbon for the sauce, meaning there were plenty of leftovers for other practical uses.
