Honey Thyme Pork Chops

This recipe is gluten free.

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 tsp coarse mustard
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • thyme

Directions

  1. Pour 4 tbsp honey in a bowl. This will be the basis of your marinade.
  2. Add 1 tbsp orange juice (you can also use lemon juice), 1 tbsp oil, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp coarse mustard, 1/2 tsp salt and a small pinch of cayenne.
  3. Lemon thyme also works really well for this. Add as much thyme as you like. Just run your fingers down the stem from top to bottom to strip it.
  4. Now whisk until you a have beautiful amber-colored syrup.
  5. Cover the pork chops with a generous amount of marinade and sprinkle a little black pepper on top. Let the flavors incorporate for roughly 5 minutes.
  6. Get your grill as hot as you can, no need to oil it because there’s oil in the marinade. Now place the meat on top. It should really sizzle.
  7. Flip over the pork chops after a minute or two and cook the other side for an additional 2 minutes. Don’t overcook them! Nothing worse than overcooked pork chops.
