Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 0.125 oz fresh tarragon
  • 4 Granny Smith apples

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops, each about 8 oz and 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 0.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Condiments

  • 2 tbsp whole-grain mustard

Wine / Beer / Spirits

  • 2 fl oz whiskey

Other

  • 0.25 cup brown sugar

Ingredients

Glaze

  • ¼ cup whiskey
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops, each about 8 ounces and 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, cored and cut into ½-inch wedges
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh tarragon leaves

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl whisk the glaze ingredients until the brown sugar dissolves. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the glaze in a large bowl.

  2. Lightly coat the pork chops on both sides with oil, season evenly with salt and pepper, and brush with the whiskey glaze in the small bowl. Allow the chops to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  4. Lightly coat the apple slices on both sides with oil.

  5. Grill the apples over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until crisp-tender and lightly charred, 4 to 6 minutes, turning once or twice. Transfer the apple slices to the large bowl with the reserved whiskey glaze, add the tarragon, and toss to coat.

  6. Grill the chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until still slightly pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve the chops warm with the grilled apples.

Whiskey Warrior Mustard Bone In Pork Loin Chops!

Think this recipe is better than most I've seen lately... I prefer a 1 1/2 " chop with bone in (I love the taste the bone adds) for this dish. Never eat a chop well done, it will be dry and taste like seasoned piece of paper. Always eat at medium or med-rare for a flavorful, decadent experience. In order to achieve this result, you must temp it to 120F and let rest, you're looking for a temp of 140F-150F. Be sure to spoon that leftover pan sauce on top of chops and apples at time of serving.

Whiskey-Mustard Pork Chops with Grilled Apples.

The pork chops were moist and tender. The apples were a good side. Next time I will use less tarragon.

Whiskey & Mustard dilemmas

Maybe I am not acquainted with whiskeys. I have tried this recipe twice (without drinking) and feel that the flavor fades away. Do I need bourbon instead of scotch?
I'am using Dijon mustard a l'ancienne? Flavor also appears to be mild? Would it be better to use the yellow paste?
Thanks for the recipe; it is very attractive and easy but you have to be careful with apples because they can overcook easily.

This is a really great recipe that is easy, quick and extremely tasty. If you're going to fix this as the recipe calls for, I would suggest increasing the amount of the sauce for basting during grilling. Only change I made which was just on a whim was the whiskey. I didn't have any whiskey on hand so while glancing around the selection at the liquor store I spied Jim Beam Maple infused bourbon and thought it would add a measure of extra taste. As this was my first time fixing the recipe, I'm not honestly sure if it made a difference over using regular whiskey. But it was damn good. If you're going to fix this for just two, keep the sauce the same. I used 2 large Honey Crisp apples as I'm not much on Granny Smith. This will be a crowd pleaser quickly
