- 4 pork chops (bone-in, about 1/2-inch thick)
- 1 shallot (finely minced)
- 2 cloves garlic (finely minced)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp coarse Dijon mustard
- ½ cup apple juice (no sugar added)
- 1 tsp fresh thyme (finely minced)
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- ⅛ tsp salt
Trim pork chops of excess fat.
Add the rest of the ingredients to a large bowl or zip-top bag. Add the pork chops and turn to coat. Allow pork to marinate for 6–8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
Scoop the veggie mixture into the bottom of the muffin cups. Sprinkle a layer of Parmesan on top.
Coat a grill rack from an outdoor gas grill with cooking spray and set it 6 inches from the heat source. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
Add the pork chops to the grill, and sear on each side for about 3 minutes. Then cover the grill and cook for about 15 minutes until the pork registers 145° F on an instant-read thermometer. Remove the chops from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes (to retain the juices) before serving.
Heat the excess marinade on medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Serve the cooked marinade over the chops.
