One complete meal I always enjoy making is a grilled pork loin chop with honey mustard glaze and a side of steamed carrots, steamed broccoli, and brown rice. It is a quick and healthy meal that takes under 30 minutes to make.
I use my all-in-one rice cooker for the rice and the steamed veggies and then I use my George Foreman grill for the grilled pork loin chop. You can easily cook the pork loin on the barbecue grill as well if you like.
This is such a tasty recipe, one that I can eat over and over again. If I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get grilling!
Step 1: Gather the ingredients and tools
In order to make a grilled pork loin chop you will need just a handful of ingredients:
- Pork Loin chop
- Olive Oil
- Garlic Powder
- Dijon Mustard
- George Foreman Grill or grill pan
- Pie plate or plate
Step 2: How to make grilled pork loin chop with honey mustard glaze
Start by plugging in and heating up your George Foreman or similar grill. You can also just use a grill skillet on the stovetop or a barbecue grill outside.
Then add your pork loin chop to a pie plate or wide bowl. Drizzle it with olive oil and then a few shakes of salt and pepper as well as garlic powder.
Flip it over and make sure both sides are coated with the seasoning.
Add the pork loin chop to the grill and close the lid. It will take 5 to 7 minutes. When you open it and check it, it should be nice and golden brown and firm to the touch.
If you have a meat thermometer the temp should register between 145F and 160F on the inside. 145F is medium rare and is the lower boundary for safe internal temps for pork. 160F is considered well done.
Remove the pork and place it on a plate to rest for about 5 minutes.
Step 3: Make the honey mustard glaze
While the pork is resting, make the honey mustard glaze. Combine the honey and the dijon mustard in a small bowl. You can also add a bit of molasses if you want.
Now just baste the top of the pork generously with the glaze and then add some mozzarella cheese if desired on top.
If you are doing this on the barbecue grill, you can baste both sides while grilling it, and then again after it is cooked. I don’t normally do that when using the George Foreman grill.
Serve it with some steamed carrots, broccoli, and brown rice and you have a very healthy meal. Enjoy!
