Pork chops with a honey and mustard glaze

By April 01, 2017 , ,

This dish was a student staple of mine, many, many years ago when I wanted to do something just a little bit different with pork chops. Like many recipes that came about back then, there was always an element of experimentation with flavours. Pork, mustard and honey work well together and with the addition of just a little lemon juice and pepper it works even better. This recipe works well with leaner chops and can also be used with pork fillet too.

2 - 4 pork chops about 125g each depending on how hungry you are!
50g honey
50g Dijon mustard
10ml Lemon juice
Half teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Salt to season

Mix the honey, lemon, pepper and mustard together
Baste the chops with the marinade and allow to marinade for 4 hours
Before cooking, season with salt
I like to cook this on the BBQ, direct heat at 200c, any hotter and the honey will char too much and leave a bitter taste, 

Cook the chops for 3 mins each side depending on the thickness of the chops, you may need a bit longer if the chops are thick
I like my pork on the medium side with just a little hint of pink, feel free to cook for a bit longer if you prefer yours well done

If you want to cook this normally, you can cook the meat under the grill on medium heat as per the directions for the BBQ

Allow the meat to rest in a warm place for 10 mins before serving
