Sweet and Tangy Grilled Pork Chops Recipe – pork chops marinated in cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, lemon juice, lime juice, salt, pepper and brown sugar. THE BEST! We make this at least twice a month!! Can let the pork chops marinate all night in the refrigerator. They are better the longer they marinate. These are our all-time favorite pork chops! #grilling #pork #porkchops #grill
Our grill is in overdrive this time of year. We probably grill out at least 5 days a week – weather permitting. Today I’m sharing a new pork chop recipe – Sweet & Tangy Pork Chops. The pork chops are marinated in cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, lemon, lime and brown sugar. Sweet from the brown sugar and a little tangy from the cider vinegar and citrus juices. Most of all, they are seriously delicious!
We let these Sweet & Tangy Pork Chops marinate overnight. I usually mix up the marinade before I go to bed. I throw in the pork chops and let them hang out in the fridge until we are ready to fire up the grill. I always think the longer you can marinate, the better. I like to get the maximum flavor!!
We absolutely LOVED these Sweet & Tangy Pork Chops. We used bone-in pork chops that were about 1/2-inch thick. You can use thicker bone-in pork chops or boneless pork chops. You will just need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
For reference – 145º to 150ºF is Medium-Rare (and delicious), 150º to 155ºF is Medium, 155º to 160ºF is Medium-Well and 160ºF is Well Done. We always go for Medium-Rare to Medium. And YES, it is perfectly SAFE to eat pork chops Medium-Rare per the USDA. Don’t overcook your pork!
