recipe goodness :: whole-grain mustard and rosemary pork chops

Rosemary Mustard Rubbed Pork Chops

Hello God, it’s me Mustard. Ok, so yes, I have admitted before that mustard is one of my single most favorite flavors to add a spicy, earthy kick to any dish. And one of my favorite things to pair this with is grilled pork chops {it’s a match made in heaven}. This dish is so easy to prepare and has such a good flavor, you will fool any table guest into thinking you work miracles in the kitchen. The mustard will caramelize, giving the pork chops a sweet and savory flavor, brightened by the herby fresh rosemary. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the mustard spreading as a lot of it will cook off onto the grill or in the pan.

Grilled Whole-Grain Mustard and Rosemary Pork Chops

Serves 4

4 8-oz bone-in Pork Chops
4 TBS Whole Grain or Dijon Mustard
1 Sprig Fresh Rosemary
Pepper to Taste

At least 2 hours before you plan to cook the pork chops {optional}, spread approximately 1 TBS of Whole Grain or Dijon mustard on each chop front and back.  Give each chop a few cranks of black pepper on each side {no need to add salt as the mustard is salty enough}. Remove rosemary leaves from sprig and sprinkle on the top and bottom of each chop. Cover and let them hang out in the fridge until ready to cook to let the mustard flavor get into the meat. It’s that easy!

Heat the BBQ, or grill pan if doing on the stove, to medium heat and cook the first side for ~5 minutes until surface is slightly golden and grill marks appear. Flip and cook for another 6-8 minutes or until done. Pork chops should be firm to the touch, but can still be slightly pink in the center when done. Depending on thickness, cooking time may vary.
