Apple Cider Glaze
- 1 1/2 cups apple cider
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- Heat the grill to medium-high heat.
- To make the glaze, combine apple cider, maple syrup, dijon mustard, red pepper flakes, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer.
- To make the rub, combine brown sugar, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the oil to the mixture and mix with a fork. It will have the consistency of a crumbly paste. Pat pork chops dry and then cover all sides with the rub.
