Mustard and pork - it's like they were meant for each other. I bet the inventor of mustard was sitting around one day, gnawing on a pork chop thinking: "there really is something missing.. something tangy and wonderful... I think I'll invent mustard"
Ok, I'm sure that's probably not how it went down, but still.. Look at what happens when the two come together - it's a bit like heaven!
Grilled Mustard Pork Chops
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
3 Tablespoons apple juice
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
2 boneless pork loin chops
For the sauce (optional - but why would you leave it out???)
3 Tablespoons sour cream
1 1/2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
garlic salt, white pepper, cayenne pepper (all to taste)
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together the apple juice, mustard, and thyme. Place the pork in a resealable bag and pour the marinade over it. Seal bag and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the sauce. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Oil the grill grates. Remove the pork from the bag and discard the marinade. Place the pork over the fire and allow to cook 4-5 minutes per side or until pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3 minutes. Serve with sauce on the side. Enjoy!
