Dijon Pork Chops

Servings 4 Serves


  • 5 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 5 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 6-oz. pork chops
  • olive oil


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate pork chops overnight or for at least 8 hours (see recipe).
  • In a small bowl, combine first 4 ingredients (mustard through Worcestershire).
  • Pour 2/3 cup of this mixture into a large zipper-topped plastic bag; add pork chops, seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting. Coat the rack of an indoor or outdoor grill with a little olive oil then preheat grill to MEDIUM.
  • Drain marinade from pork, discarding marinade and bag. Grill chops, covered, for 6 to 10 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.
  • Discard any remaining marinade.


LC SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed broccoli and Faux-Tay-Toes (steam cauliflower till tender; drain; mash with butter, cream cheese and salt and pepper to taste till you get a mashed potatoes texture).
SERVING SUGGESTION: Instead of Faux-Tay-Toes, serve baked sweet potatoes (“bake” in a crock cooker to keep your kitchen cool).
KOSHER: Use boneless skinless turkey breast cutlets instead of pork chops and use vegetarian Worcestershire sauce.
GLUTEN FREE: Make sure mustard, apple juice and Worcestershire sauce are gluten free.
