Tangy Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar & Honey Marinated Grilled Pork Chops

We all know how well apples and pork go together. This marinade infused such a wonderful apple flavor into these pork chops. I was amazed at the flavor. And yes, this was my pork chop and yes, I ate every.single.bite.

Have you tried red apple balsamic vinegar?  Have you ever heard of it? Red apple Balsamic Vinegar has an enticing aroma and a delicate, sweet apple flavor that is fruitier than most balsamic vinegars. It's a wonderful way of adding aroma and taste to compliment any dish. This balsamic is progressively aged in wood barrels according to the Solera Method and is certified to come from Modena, Italy. My friends at King's Olive Oil Company are ready to help you select new olive oils and vinegars to try!  Please go to their website and browse.        

4 oz. apple juice
2 oz. olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/8 t. freshly ground black pepper
4 - 1 1/2 inch thick boneless pork chops

Combine all marinade ingredients together in a bowl and whisk to blend. Pour into a large ziplock bag and add pork chops.

Return to refrigerator and let marinate for 2 - 3 hours.

These were cooked on a gas grill with a "sear" option. Grill about 4 - 5 minutes per side, depending on your grill's heat. Let rest for 5 minutes, then serve.  

Smile and graciously accept compliments.
