Jack Daniels Pork Chops

While cleaning out the fridge this morning I found what was left over of the Jack Daniels Grilling Sauce from the only other time I made this dish. I remember that it was quite tasty, so I think I’ll make it again this week.
Jack Daniels Pork Chops

Serves: 4

4 Pork Chops
4 tablespoons Jack Daniels Grilling Sauce
1 cup  white wine
4 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 medium onion — cut up
1 cup beef stock
1 teaspoon ginger powder

Brown chops, add onion, garlic, white wine and ginger. Simmer until onions are soft, add grilling sauce on top of chops, and add beef stock. Simmer until chops are tender.(3/4 hr. or more)

NOTES : I get the thick center cut pork chops. In place of white wine you could increase the amount of beef stock to 2 cups.


Grilled Salmon with Honey-Lime Butter

A few years ago, I found a wonderful recipe website called Steph’s Country Kitchen Goodness. That site has since been closed, but I did save a lot of the recipes. I tell you, my family has liked every single recipe I have tried from that site. So with credit to Steph, this is her recipe.


2 salmon fillets (1 lb each)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Honey-Lime Butter
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon lime zest
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1. Palce salmon in a shallow dish. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well; pour over salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Drain; discarding marinade.

2. Grill salmon over medium coals, skin side down, for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Serve with Honey-Lime Butter.  Yield: 4 servings.


Beat all ingredients in a small bowl until well blended.  Shape butter into a roll about 1-inch in diameter.  Wrap in plastic wrap and chill.  Cut into slices and serve with salmon.  Yield:  about 1/3 cup.
