Brown Sugar Bourbon Pork Chops

One of the things I love about Hello Fresh is that, even if I decide not to order from them, I still have access to their vast array of recipes. This week, I looked at my upcoming meal options and decided that while Brown Sugar Bourbon Pork Chops with Apple Pan Sauce, Scallion Mashed Potatoes & Roasted Green Beans sounded good, I figured that I could make an attempt at this recipe without relying on Hello Fresh to source the ingredients. After all, McCormick Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon Seasoning, which the recipe relies on, is easily available at most grocery stores. And I don't know what kind of apple Hello Fresh is planning to send, but I went with a Honeycrisp.

The dish easy enough to make. You basically just season the pork chops (I took a butterfly chop I had and cut it in half for two servings) with the McCormick Grill mix, cook them in the pan, let them rest, then cook the apples. Just before the apples are done, you add the pork chops back in order to warm them back up. Instead of mashed potatoes, I just went with a package from The Little Potato Company. Overall, it was a decent meal, and I'll be interested to see how it compares to the Hello Fresh version when it arrives next week.
