The end of summer is quickly approaching. The morning temperatures are beginning to drop, the feel of fall is in the air. However, it’s still so hot that cooking in the evenings will heat up your kitchen in a NYC minute! That’s one of the things I love about grilling. Not only is it delicious, but you don’t have to worry about heating up your home to make a wonderful dinner for your family.
I don’t even know how to describe how good these pork chops are. The flavor is perfect…not too bold, not too bland. With the taste of the grilling, it is definitely a meal we will have again.
It is also a super easy, simple recipe. Who doesn’t love those these days?
4 pork chops, center cut
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Tamari Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon horseradish, minced (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the pork chops and marinate for a minimum of one hour. Overnight is even better.
Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place the chops on the grill. Cook until they are just cooked through but not overcooked or they will be tough and dry. This will take 4-5 minutes per side. You don’t want overcooked meat!
If you want a sauce for the chops, take a portion of the marinade and heat to a boil in a saucepan. When the sauce has reduced by half, it is ready to serve.
Honestly, these are so good you will not need the sauce.
