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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 pork chops, 1 inch thick

  • 29.58 ml lemon juice

  1. Place meat in a plastic bag.
  2. In a small bowl, mix apple and lemon juices, sage, brown sugar and onion and stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Pour over meat.
  4. Close bag tightly and turn to coat chops well.

I loved the marinade. My boys ate every morsel of pork; but being boys, only ate some of the apples. Very good! Thanks

Ok, I have to be honest here. I made this recipe up at night with the intention of grilling it the next day, but came down with a stomach virus. So daughter Kree made it up for her and her father, and they both raved about it and gave it a full 5 stars! The apples were a nice touch. I will be making this again very soon so I get to enjoy it also.
