Tequila Marinated Pork Chops
- 4 center cut pork chops, bone in
- 3 Tbsp favorite tequila
- ½ c apple cider
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp garlic, chopped
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp fresh lime juice
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees or light barbecue to heat. Separate pork chops to the side and combine all ingredients and mix well to make marinade. Place chops in marinade and let sit 10 minutes up to 6 hours in refrigerator in a covered dish. Can either bake pork chops for about 15 minutes at 375 degrees, turning half way through, and then putting under the broiler an additional 3 minutes or grill on barbecue on medium heat about 10-12 minutes, turning half way through (internal temperature for cooked pork chops should be 160 degrees). Remove from grill or oven, cover with foil for 2 minutes, and serve.
**Great served with steamed broccoli or kale topped with a bit of salt and fresh lime juice.
