The Perfect Apple Cider Pork Chops

How to make The Perfect Apple Cider Pork Chops


– 1 1/2 lbs (one package) Bone-in Pork Chops


– 2 Tbsp. brown sugar

– 2 tsp. chili powder

– 1 tsp. garlic powder

– 1 tsp. salt

– 1/2 tsp. pepper

– 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Apple Cider Glaze:

– 1 1/2 c. apple cider

– 1/4 c. maple syrup

– 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

– 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

– 1/2 tsp. salt


– Light your gas or charcoal grill and heat to medium high heat.

– In a small saucepan, prepare the glaze by combining the apple cider, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, crushed red pepper flakes, and salt. Bring to a simmer. While the cider comes to a simmer, prepare the pork rub. In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly with a fork. Add the oil to the spice mixture. It will be the consistency of a crumbly paste. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels, and then cover the chops on all sides with the spice rub.

– Put the spice covered pork chops on the heated grill, and thoroughly brush with the cider glaze.

– Grill for about 6 minutes. Flip the chops and thoroughly brush with the glaze on the other side.

– Grill for about 2 more minutes, flip and brush again. Repeat this process until the chops cook for 10-12 minutes total, and reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Its okay for pork to have a little pink in the middle.

– If you’re also grilling apples, brush the halved apples with glaze and grill for about 5-6 minutes. No need to flip. Serve along with the chops.
