These honey mustard pork chops are great on the grill during the warmer months. Using pork is a great alternative to chicken and is a bit cheaper to purchase. This recipe uses a honey mustard sauce for both brushing while grilling and for dipping. The honey mustard sauce gets a lot of flavor from mustard, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Preparing this recipe is easy enough, the honey mustard sauce is prepared on the stovetop and then basted onto the pork while it is being grilled to perfection. I like to serve these pork chops with a cold salad. Enjoy.
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon cornstarch
- ½ cup pure honey
- 3 tablespoons whole grain mustard
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- Salt and ground black pepper (to taste)
- 4 pork chops
- In a medium saucepan, whisk together the vinegar and cornstarch until fully dissolved. Add in the honey, mustard, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and brown sugar.
- Whisk to combine and simmer over medium heat while whisking until the glaze has reduced a bit, about 5 minutes. Separate the glaze into two small bowls. Reserving one half for dipping and keeping one half for basting the pork chops while grilling.
- Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
- Add the pork chops and grill for about 3-4 minutes per side or until fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees F.).
- Brush the pork chops with the half of the glaze used for basting while they are grilling.
- Serve with the reserved half of the glaze that was not used for basting.
