Today is officially the first day of Fall and it’s still warm enough out to do some grilling so these maple dijon apple cider grilled pork chops are a great way to usher in the new season! As long as it’s warm enough out I like to grill the pork chops for this recipe but it works just as well pan fried and either way they get smothered in a tasty maple dijon apple cider sauce just brimming with sliced apples. The sauce has a base of apple cider sweetened with maple syrup along with plenty of dijon mustard before adding some miso paste, soy sauce, sriracha and garlic to round things out. If you have the grill out feel free to grill the apples otherwise you can saute them until they are just starting to turn tender but are still a little crisp. (You can use either tart apples or sweet apples depending on how you like it!) No matter how you slice it, these maple dijon apple cider grilled pork chops are sure to become a staple in your fall recipe lineup!
Serve with steamed veggies covered in the maple dijon apple cider sauce for a nice and quick, easy and tasty meal!
What an amazing fall treat with the fabulous apple and pork combo!

Awesome!! Nice food at affordable price!!!nice blog and thanku for this chowringhee in satya niketan
Is there something I could substitute for miso paste? I'm pretty sure my small town grocery store won't have it. 🙁

apple and pork go together so well! love this combination of summer and fall happening
Josh loves apples and pork together!
Josh loves the apple and pork combo!
We just had this for dinner and it was fantastic. Instead of miso paste I used a combo of tomato paste and soy sauce (Google that substitution) and I used Granny Smith apples. Served with a sweet potato "souffle" on the side, it was an absolutely perfect dinner for this chilly New England day – we actually saw a few snowflakes as we ate! Thank you Kevin.

Hi Kevin! I made this recipe Monday night. My husband and I loved it. I knew we would because we love mustard and pork. I did brine my pork chops for a few hours before I cooked them. We have lake flies hatching on Lake Michigan so I cooked on top of the stove. Kristine, I didn't have miso (I also live in small town but I ordered some from Amazon the next day) and the recipe was still delicious! I also didn't have apples but I will make this again in the autumn! I served with a boiled yukon gold potato and green beans. What a delicious dinner! Thank! Love your blog!
Um, I've never sauteed apples before. Don't you need to saute them in butter or something? Looks like a great recipe…maybe a bit heavy on the sauce. In some of your pictures, you cannot even see the pork.

Any Vietnamese recipes.
Can the white miso paste be left out without compromising the flavor?
Yes you can!
