Add pork chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, 6 to 8 hours.

Yellow mustard works fine in place of spicy ( dijon ) mustard. I used thin cut boneless chops--lightly dusted each one w/ "Smokehouse Maple" flavored seasoning before they went in a air-tight sealed bag of marinade for overnight stay in fridge. Impressed with the all-day smoker taste after a few minutes on gas BBQ grill. Novice griller chefs: If moisture is a concern, don't panic. pour pineapple juice in a small metal pan, place grilled chops in pan, pour enough more pineapple juice to just barely cover them--and seal tightly w/ foil, place in 250 degree oven for 7-10 minutes. Take chops out pan and allow them to rest for another 10 min. before serving.

We just made these tonight and it was the best pork chop I have ever had! I followed the recipe except I didn't have any mesquite seasoning, so used a regular grill seasoning blend instead. I had four smaller cut chops so did not butterfly. We grilled them after marinading about 4-5 hours and they were perfect!

Very easy to put together! I marinated overnight for about 10 hours. Pork chops were flavorful, moist, and tender. Thanks for the recipe!

this was SO delicious! instead of two pork chops i used 4 thin bone in pork chops and regular mustard for the spicy brown like others did.. left out the sugar per usual.. used about 1/4 tsp ground thyme bc for the regular bc i always worry about how strong it can be.. i use montreal steak seasoning for the mesquite flavored seasoning all the time.. idk if that's anywhere close but i haven't had a mishap yet.. used fresh parsley for dried and mistakenly used table salt for kosher salt (doh!) but the chops still came out wonderful.. ty so much for this recipe

I did not use mesquite-flavored seasoning. I don't even know what it is. But I used all the other ingredients listed and the chops had a wonderful flavor.

Best Pork Chop Marinade Haiku: "Taste was delicious! Used a tenderloin, not chops. Easy, no fail, good." Didn't have mesquite seasoning, but otherwise, used all the ingredients as written, marinating a 2 lb. pork tenderloin for 6 hrs. b4 searing and finishing off in the oven, and then serving w/ a roasted vegg medley recipe that I'd found on AR as well. Very tender and flavorful, and surely just as tasty of a marinade on chops, roast, chicken etc..
