  1. Mix mustard, brown sugar, apple juice, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl until marinade is smooth. Pour 2/3 the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops, coat with marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours to overnight. Cover bowl with remaining marinade with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  2. Remove pork chops from marinade and discard bag and marinade.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Cook the pork chops on the preheated grill, basting with reserved marinade, until no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Let pork chops stand for 5 minutes before serving.

10 stars!!! I used frozen apple juice concentrate straight from the carton. I eye balled the rest, added a splash of whiskey and reduced the whole thing by half. I am a poor planner so I used the sauce as a glaze. Fired up the grill and the boneless ribs were MONEY!! Laura, these were Fricken Tastic!! Thank You!!!

I followed this recipe to the letter & it had absolutely no taste. I saved some of the marinade for basting as we bbq'd them & they were moist, but that was about it. Won't make again.

The mustard I used on this was from a foursome I got from Trader Joe's--Blackcurrant Mustard. I read one review that said these chops had no taste, so I decided that a sweeter mustard might work better. You can see the seeds in the mustard on the photo I took, so maybe a whole grain mustard works best. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. We enjoyed these pork chops. We rate it a 4 1/2! I've saved some of the reserved sauce for another recipe--maybe chicken. Thanks, Laura! This helped us start in the new year!

This recipe is good but could be better! That spice rack sitting in the corner of your kitchen that you got from Aunt Betty 20 years ago as a wedding gift wasn't given as a show piece. Don't be afraid of those things called spices! They can dress up almost anything and this dish is certainly no exception to that rule. I added a little onion powder, garlic powder, tarragon and thyme for a savory and delicious addition that made these pork chops pop and I only marinaded it for 30 minutes. Imagine what how those chops would taste after sitting in all of that savory goodness overnight! Try it! Hopefully you'll agree and get creative shaking those pretty jars sitting in the corner of your kitchen taking up counter space!

I substituted Brandy for the apple juice and used all else as directed. The alcohol will draw the flame, so you have to watch these a bit more closely, but they turned out nicely.

Wonderful marinade for pork chops. We really enjoyed it and will make it again. Love the Dijon mustard and brown sugar.

I put my own twist on this recipe. I used honey instead of brown sugar, added 2Tbs Asian sea salt blend, 6 cloves of chopped garlic & more worcheshire sauce. I didn't have dijion mustard so I used brown mustard and used almost twice as much. I let it sit in a bowl in the marinate for several hours tossing the chops several times throughout the day. My family loved it.
