Bourbon-Glazed Smoked Pork Chops

Source: Martha Stewart Living, June 2012


  • 6 smoked bone-in pork rib chops (1/2 inch thick; 1 pound total)
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon light-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon safflower oil


  1. Place pork chops on a paper-towel-lined tray, and pat dry. Combine mustard and cayenne pepper, and evenly season chops. Stir together sugar, bourbon, and 2 tablespoons water.

  2. Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Sear pork chops in batches until browned, about 2 minutes on each side (turn heat down if necessary to keep browned bits from burning). Remove chops from pan, and lower heat. Add bourbon mixture, scrape up browned bits with a wooden spoon, and cook for 30 seconds, until reduced to a glaze. Return chops to pan, and cook, flipping, until chops are warmed through and completely glazed, about 1 minute.

    Delicious and fast. The flavors meld together beautifully. Served with homemade chunky applesauce and still had dinner on the table in 30 minutes.

    This was an easy and tasty recipe. I used boneless chops and they were delicious!

    This is a smoked pork chop recipe because you buy smoked pork chops from the store and cook them as directed in order to serve them. They are basically being warmed up. Great flavor combo.

    How the hell is this a smoked pork chop? It's cooked in a pan.
