Glazed Pork

This is a great tasting glaze! We followed the instructions as they are written here, but I have to tell you, for me the flavor wasn't quite strong enough. So I actually took the pork chops and dumped the glaze on top in a pan and covered it with tinfoil and baked it in the oven on low heat 225 for an hour just to tenderize it further and soak up more of the glaze. It was delicious. Next time I'm just going to dump it right in my crockpot and cook it over a pork roast. I think it would be great on chicken too. Ingredients:
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup apple juice
8 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon ground ginger
salt and pepper to taste
4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup water
6 boneless pork chops

1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
2. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, apple juice, oil, soy sauce, ginger, salt , and pepper. Bring to boil. Combine water and cornstarch in small bowl, and whisk into brown sugar mixture. Stir until thick.
3. Brush grate lightly with oil before placing pork chops on the grill. Cook over hot coals for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. Brush with sauce just before removing chops from grill. Serve with remaining sauce.
