Juicy Grilled Honey Mustard Glazed Pork Chops: This recipe is the no fail way to make succulent, tender chops. Marinate for 30 minutes, grill and have them on the table in about 20 minutes.
Place all ingredients except for the pork chops in a plastic bag. Seal and mix well. Then open bag, and place pork chops in the bag, seal while removing any additional air in the bag. Place in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes up to overnight.
If you place the pork chops in the fridge longer than 30 minutes you will need to remove them 30 minutes before you wish to grill them to allow them to come to room temperature.
Turn on your gas grill, or get coals ready to heat for a two temperature cook area. On a gas grill, have one area on high, and one area on medium. With charcoal, know where the hot spots are and know where its a lot cooler.
While the grill is heating up, pull out the pork chops and place on a plate, shaking off any additional marinade. Place leftover sauce in a sauce pan and bring to boil for 5 minutes to cook any remaining pork juices. Set aside to serve over top of cooked pork chops.
Place pork chops on the hot area of the grill for 3-5 minutes per side to sear the edges and caramelize the outer area. Then slide the pork chops to the cooler temp and cook for 5-10 minutes (flipping again at 5 minutes) until the pork is 145°. (this is the temp recommended by the usda for safe eating.)
Remove from the grill when it attains 145° and let it rest for 5 minutes before serving. Spoon cooked sauce over the top and serve immediately. (optionally, you can sprinkle extra basil on for contrasting color before serving!)
