Honey Mustard Pork
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
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.
