Prep: 20 minutes + marinade timeCook: 20 minutesTotal: 40 minutes + marinade time
Servings: 4 servings 1x


For the pork chops and marinade:

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (about 68 ounces each and ¾- to 1-inch thickness)
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (may substitute lemon juice or white wine vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons pure honey
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil or olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos*
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed or minced (may substitute 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

For the Honey Mustard Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon pure honey 
  • 2 teaspoons coconut aminos*
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme  
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper


  1. Make the marinade: In a small bowl or mason jar with a lid, combine the vinegar, honey, oil, coconut aminos, garlic, Dijon, salt, and pepper. Whisk or shake to combine well, and set aside.
  2. Marinate the pork: Place the pork chops in a large zip top bag or container. Pour the marinade over them, and turn pork chops to coat. Marinate the pork chops in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours for best flavor (not less than 30 minutes and not longer than 10 hours).
  3. Grill the pork chops: Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Once the grill is heated, remove the pork chops from the marinade (and discard the marinade). Place pork chops on the grill. Grill pork chops, covered, for 8-12 minutes per side (cook time will depend on the thickness of the chops) or until the internal temperature reaches 145°. Let the pork chops rest for 5 minutes before serving. 
  4. Make the sauce: While the pork chops are grilling, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, Dijon, honey, coconut aminos, garlic powder, and thyme. Taste and season with salt and pepper. 
  5. Serve: Serve the grilled pork chops with the Honey Mustard Sauce drizzled over top. If desired, garnish with parsley or fresh thyme.
