Pork Chop Marinade in jar

Pork Chop Marinade

Lots of ingredients in this easy Pork Chop Marinade recipe, but you probably already have them in your kitchen! This simple mixture gives outstanding flavor to pork chops but also different kinds of pork roasts and pork tenderloin. Hints of apple and mustard along with the perfect amount of oil and acid not only tenderize the meat, but the flavor can be enjoyed with every bite!
