Have you ever heard of Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House? It's near the Jack Daniel's Distillery. No Lynchburg visit is complete until you’ve toured the distillery and enjoyed a meal at Miss Mary Bobo’s Restaurant, where every family-style dish is served with a warm Tennessee welcome and a heaping side of friendly conversation. It's an experience you won't soon forget. Jack Daniels himself used to dine there regularly! The food is amazing and this recipe is from their cookbook.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 Tbls cooking oil
  • 6 thick cut pork chops
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 6 Tbls ketchup
  • 4 Tbls Jack Daniel's Whiskey
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. In a large skillet, heat oil.
  2. Season the chops generously with salt and pepper and brown them over medium heat.
  3. Place the chops in a shallow baking dish.
  4. Place one onion slice and one lemon slice on top of each chop.
  5. Combine remaining ingredients and spoon over the top of each chop.
  6. Cover and bake at 350* F for 40 minutes. Remove the cover and bake 30 minutes or until done.
  7. Spoon basting sauce over the chops occasionally.

If you're not from around here, then you might not know that Lynchburg is, still to this day, in a DRY county. So they make the whiskey there, but they can't drink it there!
