You will need:

4 extra-lean boneless pork loin chops cut 1 1/2 inches thick

1/4 cup dijon mustard

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons apple juice

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 granny smith apples

Using re-sealable plastic bag, combine pork chops, mustard, brown sugar, apple juice and Worcestershire sauce; press to coat chops well. Reserve enough marinade to use for brushing when grilling. Refrigerate 2 to 24 hours.

Remove chops and discard marinade. Allow chops to rest at room temperature before grilling. Grill chops on direct medium until barely pink in the center, 8 to 12 minutes, turning once and brushing with remaining marinade. Serve with Grilled Granny Smith Apples.

Grilled Granny Smith Apples: Core and dice unpeeled apples crosswise into rounds 1/2-inch thick. Dip rounds in marinade. Grill about 5 inches from coals 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
