Pork chops with the flavor of Dijon mustard and apple juice are great on the grill. This recipe can be used as a grilling glaze, a marinade or both. The glaze consists of only 4 ingredients—Dijon mustard, apple cider, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. The pork chops can be marinated in a sealable plastic bag or a bowl that can be covered. If you are using the sauce as a glaze only, just combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and brush the pork chops frequently on both sides while grilling. I like to serve these pork chops with a cold salad on the side. The cold salad pictured in this recipe is pepperoni pasta salad. Enjoy.
- 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons apple juice
- 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 4 (8 ounces) bone-in pork chops
- In a small bowl whisk together Dijon mustard, brown sugar, apple juice, and Worcestershire sauce until smooth. Pour 2/3 of the sauce into a sealable plastic bag. Cover and refrigerate the remaining 1/3 of the sauce. Add the pork chops to the plastic bag, coat with the marinade and seal the bag. Place into the refrigerator and marinate for 8 hours to overnight.
- Remove the pork chops from the bag and discard the marinade.
- Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place the pork chops onto the grill, and cook while basting with the reserved marinade for 4-5 minutes per side until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees F). Let the pork stand for 5 minutes before serving.
