Honey-Mustard Pork Chops

Pork chops never had it so good ~ and it’s because of the relatively dulcet-zingy flavor of the honey-mustard marinade!

This may qualify as the worst food pic ever---we were hungry!

This recipe is from our local newspaper, The Northwest Herald, and is one I plan on repeating many times.  The chops marinated in the refrigerator for 5 hours before being baked.  The recipe actually calls for broiling them, but I placed them on a baking sheet and baked them for about 20 minutes.   They turned out juicy and tender.  The next time, they will be cooked on the grill.  Bet that would be even better!

 I was afraid the recipe was not making enough marinade, but it was plenty.  The sauce was really delicious and the pork chops turned out tender and succulent.  The only problem is that I didn’t take a “pretty picture” of them, as you can see.  We could hardly wait to sink our teeth into them…

Not much better...

Honey-Mustard Pork Chops


¼ cup Dijon mustard
4 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon cider or white wine vinegar
¼ teaspoon black pepper (I used ½ teaspoon seasoned pepper)
4 (5-ounce) loin pork chops


For marinade:

Stir together all ingredients except pork in a small bowl.
Transfer marinade to a large zip-close plastic bag and add pork.
Squeeze out air and seal bag; turn to coat meat.
Refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
Remove chops from bag and discard marinade.
Place chops on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until pork is cooked to your desired doneness.

It’s hard to beat the tangy-sweet flavor of honey-mustard, especially with pork!

  1. So funny I was just asking my co-workers at lunch ideas for supper...I'm all out of ideas right now. One teacher asked "when was the last time you had pork chops?" He said to do them on the grill...hmmm...that sounded good, I usually just make pork roast or pulled pork. Then I was thinking what sould I season them with? Bingo!! Good pork chops and a good recamondation! Thanks.

I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people's tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting.”
