Pork chops are a simple, tasty option for healthy weeknight meals for two or as part of a big weekend cookout. The secret to the juiciest, flavorful chops is taking the time to marinate them. Our mustard glaze is an easy recipe that packs a huge flavor punch, making for delicious eating with minimal effort. Pro tip: they’re perfect served with Creamed Brussels Sprouts. And with Assorted Pork Chops on sale, there’s even more reason to give it a try this week – or weekend!

Ingredients
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
2 thick-cut pork chops

Instruction
Whisk the first 9 ingredients together in bowl. Place pork chops in a storage bag; add glaze. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour before cooking. When ready to cook, remove chops from storage bag. Place glaze in bowl. Grill for 20 minutes or cook over medium-high heat in cast-iron skillet for 8 minutes per side (or until cooked through). Spoon glaze over pork while cooking. For best results, frequently baste chops with glaze while cooking.

Chef Tips

The Benefits of Marinade
If you have a great cut of meat, some basic seasonings and a perfected grilling technique, that’s generally all you need for a terrific cook out. But, if you’re looking to expand the flavor profile of your next barbeque or you’re not exactly a grill master yet, marinating is your secret weapon for fabulous eating. Marinades add flavor and juiciness to any grill meat, and you can keep it simple or get as creative as you like. Easy options include store-bought Italian Dressing or Balsamic Vinaigrettes, or you can try recipes and experiment with your own concoctions. Generally all you need is an oil, an acid (fruit juice, vinegar, beer or white wine) and some herbs and spice, although you can also play around with condiments like soy sauce, honey, mustard and BBQ sauce.

Dinner for Two
Most recipes you find are for four or more, which is fine in most cases because it’s easy enough to halve the recipe or make too much and save the remainder for leftovers. But sometimes, you just want a recipe made for two. If you’re looking for some dinner for two inspiration check out eatingwell.com, bbcgoodfood.com and of course brookshires.com.
