Dijon Grilled Pork Chops

"'My mom gave me the recipe for these savory chops with a sweet and tangy marinade,' relates Babette Watterson from Atglen, Pennsylvania. 'The apple juice and Dijon mustard complement the pork nicely. With a vegetable and some rice or pasta, you have a meal.'"

This was good - buy not "THE BEST!" - this is great for an everyday type meal during the week -nothing spectacular here - but tasty.

I marinated these and brought them to a tailgating event. After coming off of the grill, they were so moist and tender! So much so, that some people made pork chop sandwiches out of them. I u...

My fiance called this tasty marinade a "lifer," which is good news for me because it was incredibly easy. Now he wants me to marinade everything I cook in it.
