Apple Thyme Grilled Pork Chops

Any fruit cooked on the barbecue is delicious, and grilled apple quarters make a juicy accompaniment for these easy pork chops.

4 pork loin chops (about ¾-inch/2-cm thick)
¼ c. (60 ml) apple juice
¼ c. (60 ml) fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp. (15 ml) cider vinegar
1 tbsp. (15 ml) vegetable oil
½ tsp. (2.5 ml) dried thyme
2 apples, peeled and quartered
2 tbsp. (30 ml) liquid honey

Trim the excess fat from the chops; arrange in a shallow dish.

Stir the apple juice, lemon juice, vinegar, oil and thyme together; pour over the chops, turning to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Reserving the marinade in a small saucepan, place the chops on a greased grill over medium heat; cook, turning once, for 10 minutes or until still slightly pink inside. Meanwhile, boil the marinade for 3 minutes.

Dip the apples into the marinade and place on the grill. Stir the honey into the marinade; brush generously over the chops and apples. Cook, turning the apples often, for about 5 minutes longer or just until the pork is no longer pink inside and the apples are tender. Makes 4 servings.
