This recipe was developed by Chef Tom Kenny of Mike Ditka’s Restaurant in Chicago. A favorite pork chop recipe for tailgating of the legendary coach of Da Bears and the New Orleans Saints and 5-time Pro Bowler. Be sure to have plenty of other tailgating goodies like Roasted Potato Dippers, Chilies Con Queso and try Grilled Honey-Glazed Cinnamon Apples for dessert.
In a mixing bowl, combine orange juice, soy sauce, garlic, mustard, honey and cayenne pepper. Mix together with a whisk. Pour over pork chops and marinate in the refrigerator for 12 / 24 hours.
Remove pork from marinade; discard marinade. Season pork with salt and pepper and grill for 10 / 12 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3 minute rest time.
