Pork Chops with Bourbon Tomatoes

Pork Chops with Bourbon Tomatoes
  • 4 (1-inch thick) pork chops
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 2/3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Season pork chops with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in hot oil until nearly cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove pork chops to a plate, retaining oil and drippings in the skillet.
  3. Pour 1 teaspoon olive oil to the reserved drippings and reduce heat to medium. Cook and stir onion in oil mixture until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir garlic into onion; cook and stir until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove onion mixture to a bowl.
  4. Pour remaining 1 teaspoon oil into the skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Add tomatoes to oil and cook until seared on all sides and the skins begin to crack, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle brown sugar over the tomatoes; stir.
  5. Pour bourbon over the tomatoes; bring to a simmer and cook until some of the alcohol evaporates, about 2 minutes. Add onion mixture and beef broth to the tomatoes; bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid reduces by half and the tomatoes are soft, about 5 minutes.
  6. Return pork chops and juices to the skillet, cook until no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Serve dish sprinkled with parsley.
