Autumn Corners
Apple Day

Apple Cider Marinated Pork Chops

Apl cid marn

We grill year around. My hubby does not cook but he grills! Since we grill so much I like to change the flavors out. Apple cider is a fall favor and this marinade is a bit hit. Marinating pork (or chicken) is a good idea because both meats can dry out when cooking. It adds flavor and keeps the meat moist. Serves this with an apple, candied pecans, spinach salad and you would have a perfect autumn meal!!

Apple Cider Marinated Pork Chops

good for 4-6 chops


1/2 cup apple cider (or juice)

3 TBL apple cider vinegar (if you can get raw cider that is the best)

1/4 cup water

2 garlic cloves ruffly chopped

1 TBL fresh ground pepper

2 TBL salt

1 TBL fresh ground nutmeg (do not use pre-grounded nutmeg because it is only sweet. Fresh ground nutmeg has a peppery bite to it!!)

1/2 tsp. ground allspice


Mix all together and marinate chops for 4 hours (up to 12 hours) and pan fry or grill. I like to put my chops and marinate in a zip-lock baggie. Works well!!

Would love to see you link these to my "Open House" Blog Party! They look wonderful!


That marinade sounds great! My hubby is the "griller" of the home, too. But he cooks, as well. Although I prefer to do that! Thanks for the recipe!

This sounds delicous. We had chops the other day on the grill and they got rather dry. I watched them carefully too. I'm going to try this. Thank you!


Sounds delicious! I'm pretty much the griller in our house - so I plan to give this a try!
