MEAL OF THE WEEK -- CIDER-DIJON PORK CHOPS

I haven't done a meal of the week in awhile.  Here is the one I did tonight.  It turned out good.  Only one problem -- I was in a hurry and didn't measure.  I think I could have used a little more cider vinegar next time.  Well, next time I will measure.


Prep time:  5 minutes
Cook time:  8 minutes
Serves:  4
15 minutes marinate time and 3 minutes stand time extra

Ingredients:
4 (6-oz.) boneless pork chops
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves

1.  Place chops in a large resealable plastic bag.  For the marinade, in a small bowl combine mustard, oil, vinegar, garlic and thyme; mix well.  Pour marinade over chops; seal bag and turn to coat.  Refrigerate 15 minutes to 1 hour, turning bag occasionally.

2.  Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray.  Preheat grill to medium-high (350*F to 400*F).  Remove chops from marinade; discard marinade.  Season chops with salt and pepper to taste.  Grill 4 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer registers 145*F.  Transfer to a platter; let stand 3 minutes before serving.

  2. Kathy, We grilled pork tenderloins and corn on the cob , last week. We ate about three meals of that since then. Ted was loving it. We used Mrs. Dash seasoning and b-b-q sauce, on the pork. I bet Joe loved you cooking him something so good. It's true we can eat cheap and better at home...but boy some times, it's good to get out of the kitchen. LOL. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. We get out of the kitchen too much. I have to save money and cook at home more.

  4. We had slow cooker ribs last night with a side of fresh corn and zucchini salad. Easy summer meals are the best and eating at home sure does save $, we agree.
