Honey Mustard Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

Honey Mustard Grilled Pork Chops
These honey mustard pork chops are great on the grill during the warmer months. Using pork is a great alternative to chicken and is a bit cheaper to purchase. This recipe uses a honey mustard sauce for both brushing while grilling and for dipping. The honey mustard sauce gets a lot of flavor from mustard, honey, and apple cider vinegar. Preparing this recipe is easy enough, the honey mustard sauce is prepared on the stovetop and then basted onto the pork while it is being grilled to perfection. I like to serve these pork chops with a cold salad. Enjoy.
