This delicious grilled pork is an especially nice dish to do in the fall, when there's an abundance of fresh apples. Prep time doesn't include marinating time.
- 4 pork chops, 1 inch thick
- 1 cup apple juice
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon sage
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 onion, minced
- 2 -3 firm apples (I use Granny Smith for this)
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
