Grilled Brown Sugar Pork Chops

1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup apple juice
4 TBS vegetable oil
1 TBS soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp cornstarch
1/2 cup water
6 pork chops

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, apple juice, oil, soy sauce, ginger, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl, and whisk into the brown sugar mix. Stir until thick (I have not done this yet). Brush grate lightly with oil before placing the pork on the grill. Cook over hot coals for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once. Brush with the sauce just before removing the chops from the grill. Serve with remaining sauce. From Frozen: Thaw, and reserve the liquid. Boil the liquid down to baste pork chops at the end. Brush grate lightly with oil and grill as above. Enjoy! Jennifer (recipe adapted from a recipe on Allrecipes)
