Honey Mustard Pork


We have an abundance of pork chops in our freezer from the pig Sam shot and I've been getting tired of our same old pork chops. I started looking on the internet and came across this recipe that looked really yummy. And what do you know....it just happens to be from the Our Best Bites website (this one is not in the book). Anywho, these are super duper yummy grilled up, although I didn't have the liquid smoke they still were VERY VERY good. In fact we have had them 2 times this week :)



4 4-6 oz. pork loin or sirloin chops
Kosher salt and pepper
Liquid Smoke
3 Tbsp. Dijon or whole grain mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
2 cloves minced garlic

1- Sprinkle pork chops with Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Give them a liberal dousing of liquid smoke (you can usually find this either near the seasonings or the BBQ sauce/condiments in the grocery store). Set aside.

2- Heat oven broiler to high or preheat grill. Combine honey, garlic, and mustard. Place pork chops on broiler pan/grill and cook for 4-5 minutes. Turn and cook another 4-5 minutes. You want the internal temperature to be at least 165 (that’s a little pink inside), but you also don’t want to overcook them because they’ll become tough. So you may need to adjust your cooking times a little, bearing in mind that they have two minutes to cook after the initial 8-10 minutes.

3- Baste with honey mustard mixture and cook an additional minute. Turn and baste other side; cook for one additional minute. Remove from heat and allow to stand a few minutes to seal in the juices.

**Randi's Side Notes**
~ I fear cooking things on high heat so we had ours on around medium and they cooked up in about the same amount of time.
