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

  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)


  1. For marinade, in a small bowl, mix first four ingredients. Place pork chops and 2/3 cup marinade in a large resealable plastic bag; seal bag and turn to coat. Reserve remaining marinade; cover and refrigerate with pork 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Place chops on a lightly oiled grill rack over medium heat; discard remaining marinade in bag. Grill chops, covered, until a thermometer reads 145°, 4-6 minutes per side, basting with reserved marinade during the last 3 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
