Chop-chop — this delicious family dinner comes together in minutes! After a quick dip in a flavorful marinade (which works great with chicken and shrimp, too), juicy pork chops get a nice sear on a hot grill. While they’re cooking, whip up a quick fruit-forward slaw, which makes a fresh contrast to the savory char of the grilled chops!


Select ingredients:


  1. Place the pork chops in a large zip-close bag. Whisk together the orange juice, 1/4 cup of the olive oil, garlic, mustard, 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add the marinade to the bag and turn to evenly coat the pork chops. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Remove the pork chops from the marinade. Discard the marinade. Grill the pork chops for 5-8 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the orange into segments and slice the apple into matchsticks. Add the coleslaw, orange and apple to a large bowl and mix to combine.
  4. Whisk together the lemon juice, remaining olive oil, honey and remaining salt. Add the dressing to the coleslaw and toss. Serve with cooked pork chops.

Recipe Tip: Once pork chops are cooked, transfer to a serving platter and loosely cover with aluminum foil. Allow to rest at least 5 minutes before serving.
