This is a simple marinade that works wonders on pork chops or pork loin. The pork chops can be bone in, but center loin chops work the best. Make sure they are at least 1 1/2-2″ thick. The chops can marinate all day for a quick weekday meal as well.
Pork in Mustard Molasses and Bourbon Marinade
- 4 thick cut pork chops or 3 lb pork loin
- 3 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 tbsp bourbon
- 2-4 dashes cayenne hot sauce
Season pork with salt and pepper. Mix everything else together in a large container or plastic bag. Place pork in marinade and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, turning every so often. Create a fire in the grill and cook over direct heat if they are pork chops or indirect heat if a whole tenderloin. Brush excess marinade onto pork as it cooks.
