Grilled Pork Chops with Honey
Thrifty shoppers can save money by buying a boneless pork loin roast when it is on sale and cutting it into 1-inch chops in their own kitchen. Any leftover chops can easily be frozen.
4 (1 in. thick) pork chops
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp dried tarragon
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cider vinegar
Preheat grill. Brush rack with vegetable oil. Trim excess fat from chops; score outer edge of meat at 1-inch intervals.
Blend honey, mustard, orange juice, tarragon, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder in a small bowl.
Place chops on grill about 4 inches from heat. Brush with honey mixture. Grill for 8 minutes, brushing every 2 minutes with honey mixture.
Turn chops over. Grill for 8 minutes longer or until cooked through, basting every 2 minutes with honey mixture.
Use all-natural hardwood charcoal, not briquettes, for grilling. The fire is ready in half the time and there is no chemical residue left on the food.
