This quick & easy recipe comes from the 1966 Quick & Easy Dinners cookbook by the editors of Sunset Magazine. When serving these chops, I like using the reserved half of the glaze over brown rice & peas!

These pork chops were soooooo good. The glaze really made this dish. The pork chops were tender, moist and yummy. I can't wait to try this glaze on chicken. This recipe is a definite keeper. Recipenapped for November, 2009 Aus/NZ Swap.

Great Flavor! My whole family enjoyed. We cooked ours on the grill while basting with the glaze.

Hi, Syd! You've got yourself another winner. I didn't have any honey mustard, so just used honey and some Tabasco grainy mustard. I don't think it threw the recipe off to any discernable degree. I used boneless chops, but think I will try bone-in next time. As always, thnx for posting. Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009.
