Boneless pork chops are marinated in a simple marinade and broiled.

Honey Mustard Pork Chops on Taste and TellPhoto Updated March 2014

I feel much better when I am eating well and exercising. I did ok during my pregnancy. I exercised 3-5 times a week, but my eating was not that great. I vowed to do better once the baby came, but for those first few weeks, cooking was not on the agenda for me. We had wonderful family that brought us meals for the first week we were home, but after that, we resorted to way too many “convenience” foods. The freezer section at the grocery store was our best friend for another week or so. And now, I’m feeling the effects of all that junk food!!

When I chose this Weight Watcher’s cookbook as the Cookbook of the Month, I didn’t choose it to lose weight. In fact, I told myself I had until 6 weeks postpartum to start getting back on track. But this meal was so refreshing and made me feel so much better that I’ve vowed to start eating better already.

Both the pork chops and the broccoli were delicious. And soooo easy. In fact, I had put the pork in the refrigerator to marinate the night before we were going to have this meal, and we didn’t end up eating it for an extra night after that, so the pork chops were full of flavor. They weren’t so pretty, so that’s why you can’t really see them in the picture! But the broccoli – I am going to start eating broccoli like this on a regular basis because it was so easy, full of flavor, and just a great way to eat your vegetables. This is one delicious, healthy meal!!

Honey Mustard Pork Chops
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Boneless pork chops are marinated in a simple marinade and broiled.
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cider or wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 boneless pork chops
  1. To prepare the marinade, in a small saucepan over low heat, heat the honey until it liquefies. Stir in the mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper; cool to room temperature.
  2. Place the pork chops in a gallon-size ziploc plastic bag; add the marinade. Seal the bag, squeezing out the air; turn to coat the chops. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 8 hours or overnight. Remove the chops from the refrigerator 30 minutes before broiling.
  3. Preheat the broiler. Discard the marinade. Place the chops on the broiler rack and broil 3-4? from the heat until cooked through, 6-7 minutes on each side.

    Okay, first of all I’m feeling very lazy when I read that you exercised 3-5 times a week WHILE pregnant. *sigh … I need to get moving more.* Next, I adore pork. It’s my favorite white meat. And that lemony cheesy broccoli sounds great, too. I actually like the W.W. cookbooks. They have great recipes, as does their magazine! YUM!

  3. Annemarie says:

    This will be on the menu this week for sure!!

    This recipe sounds so loaded with flavor.. I so adore honey mustard! Lemon butter sounds terrific!

  5. Ingrid says:

    I have pork cutlets in the fridge right now needing to be used. Mine won’t marinate as long as yours but I’m thinking it will still be tasty. As for the broccoli I don’t think there’s a way I don’t like it.

    Once you’ve had roasted broccoli you cannot ever go back to steamed:

    I’m so impressed you exercised so much during pregnancy. What sort of exercise did you/do you like to do?

  9. Sylvie says:

    It looks like a great meal. I could certainly do with getting back on track myself!

  10. Sophie says:

    That’s great that you exercised while you were pregnant, I hope I’m that disciplined :). You can’t beat honey mustard, I love it on chicken and I just know it’d be equally as yummy on pork chops.

  11. Elyse says:

    Healthy recipes truly are inspiring! Getting lots of great flavor in a healthy medium–it’s just a great thing! I can usually take or leave meat, but this pork looks great! And that broccoli…mmm mmm mmm!
