We’re in the homestretch of #10DaysofTailgate! This is my second to last recipe for this fabulous event! But you can still enter the giveaway…go here for more info asap!

#10DaysofTailgate Sponsors

I always forget about pork chops. It’s not that we don’t like pork. When we have company over or want a dinner with loads of leftovers, I don’t hesitate to make pulled pork or carnitas. Ben’s obsessed with bacon and sausage. [True story.] But pork chops seem to sit in our freezer for.eve.r. before I make something with them. And I’m not sure why. In my opinion, they’re easier to cook than a regular old chicken breast, and they feel fancier too. But as soon as I heard about one of the sponsors for #10DaysofTailgate I KNEW I was going to be making some pork chops, because one of our sponsors is El Diablo Hot & Spicy Mustard. And mustard pork chops are amazing!! These mustards come in all sorts of fun flavors like Mango, Smoky Chipotle, and Jalapeno. I’ve already used two–Mango in an aoili for sweet potato fries [yummm!] and the Smoky Chipotle for these pork chops. Another #10DaysofTailgate sponsor came in handy for this recipe too–ThermoWorks’ ThermoPop, a pocket digital thermometer. I didn’t have a good meat thermometer before this–just a cheapo from our wedding five years ago that didn’t really work–so I’m really excited to use this thermometer in my kitchen now. 🙂 And it’s red too! Super cute. Anyways, these pork chops were so simple and so flavorful… just a mixture of spicy mustard, apple cider vinegar, and Thai basil. I grilled them indoors because it was getting dark but they can be grilled outside too obviously. If you can’t find El Diablo, any spicy mustard plus a tablespoon of chipotle peppers will do.

Ingredients:

Directions:

In a bowl, stir together mustard, vinegar, and Thai basil. Add pork to the bowl and combine to coat. Let rest for 40 minutes. If you prefer to do this in a plastic bag, that works too.

Grill until cooked through, about 4 minutes for me on my George Foreman grill. You can also grill these outdoors if you prefer.
