This was SO good! I have had a HUGE craving for grilled food lately (go figure, our grill does not work), but never fear! I have a grill pan that does the job and gives me those grill lines on my meat, so we are good.
It’s Friday. It’s been a long week and last year at this time, I would have called B to have him pick up some carry out on the way home so I wouldn’t have to mess with cooking. NOT ANYMORE! You know why? Because I FEEL better when I cook real food. Tonight, I needed something quick. I had pork loin left over from my pulled pork roast earlier this week which I had cut into individual portions, or chops. I added this Lemon Dijon Pork Chop Marinade – 21 Day Fix Approved (of course)- to the bag of meat, made sure it was distributed well and stuck it back in the fridge for a few hours.
When B got home, I grilled up the Pork Chops until they were cooked through. While the meat was grilling, I sliced up what was left in the veggie drawer and added in a bag of frozen stir fry veggies (gotta clear out the fridge before I shop for my WEEK OF GRILLING next week!!), threw in some seasonings, topped everything with Feta and BOOM. Dinner is served. Doesn’t get much easier than that for a healthy, homemade meal with a ton of flavor that even the 3 year old will eat.

This marinade was a hit with the entire family! I used mustard instead of Dijon, as I didn’t have any, and it was still fantastic. I have picky eaters, and they have already requested this meat again next week. Thank you!
What an awesome feeling! That is awesome, Niki! 🙂
Delicious! I used a vacuum packer to marinade 30 minutes while I got the coals ready. Really good and quick.
These were delicious! I didn’t have thyme or vinegar and they still came our great
