⅓ cup bourbon

3 cloves garlic, minced 

3 tablespoons light brown sugar, firmly packed 

3 tablespoons soy sauce 

3 tablespoons whole-grain mustard


  1. In a shallow dish or large self-sealing plastic bag, combine the ingredients then add in the pork chops. 
  2. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
  3. Remove pork from the bag and keep the marinade aside for later use. 
  4. Preheat the braai to medium-high heat. 
  5. Cook the chops with the braai lid closed for 5 - 6 minutes a side (or until done), baste the meat with the marinade when turning it.

Don’t do pork? Substitute it with beef brisket or chicken breast.
