Servings: 4      Prep Time: 20 minutes (or optional overnight marinade)      Cook Time: 10 minutes

Chicken breasts would work beautifully in this recipe as well.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup whiskey
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons miso paste (or 3 tablespoons Miso & Easy)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
4 pork chops, about 1-inch thick
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions:

1. In a sealable bag, combine the whiskey, apple cider, miso, brown sugar and mustard. Add the pork chops, seal the bag and squeeze out as much air as possible. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or up to overnight.

2. When ready to cook, remove the pork chops from the bag. Wipe off marinade from pork chop, reserving as much of the marinade as possible in the bag.

3. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Swirl in the cooking oil. Add in the pork chops and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the pork chops then pour in the reserved remaining marinade from the bag into the pan. Turn the heat to medium-low and cover the pan. Cook for 5 minutes (if your pork chops are thinner than 1" please cut time to 3-4 minutes) or until the pork chops are 145F in the middle, or just barely pink. Let rest for 3 minutes on counter.

4. Top with parsley. Serve with the whiskey miso sauce from the pan.
