*NEW* recipe - Honey Mustard Pork Chops

Good morning everyone!

So, althought it is just breakfast time, I am thinking about dinner. A few months ago I was browsing on the web for different recipes because a major part of this healthy living lifestyle is having the ability to prepare and make smarter choices.

I found this recipe on Recipes from Red Shoes, and it is a Weight Watchers recipe. Now, please understand I am not following weight watchers, but they do have some pretty good recipes that I like to take a shot at because after all - we are all being healthy, right?

I love this recipe because the sauce tastes so good, and I have made it for chicken as well. It is always good to try new things and explore with it - that is the key to healthy living!

WW Honey Mustard Pork Chops


4 tsp Honey
1/4 c Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Cider or wine vinegar
Pepper, freshly ground
4 Loin pork chops (5 oz. bone in, 1" think)


1. To prepare the marinade, in a small saucepan over low heat, heat the honey until it liquefies. Stir in the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper; cool to room temperature.
2. Place the pork chops in a gallon-size sealable plastic bag; add the marinade. Seal the bag, squeezing out the air; turn to coat the chops. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 8 hours or overnight. Remove the chops from the refrig 30 minutes before broiling.
3. Preheat the broiler. Discard the marinade. Place the chops on the broiler rack and broil 3-4" from the heat until cooked through, 6-7 minutes on each side.

Cook's Notes

If you like, liquefy the honey in the microwave: Place in a small microwaveable bowl and microwave at 20-30% power for 30 seconds.
