Smoky Honey Mustard Pork Chops

We were trying to decide what to do with some frozen pork we had, and I came across this recipe. It has a delicious, but light flavor. We demolished it!

4 4-6 oz pork loin or sirloin chops
salt and pepper
Liquid Smoke
3 Tbsp Dijon or whole grain mustard
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
2 cloves minced garlic

1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Give them a liberal dousing of liquid smoke (you can usually find this either near the seasonings or the BBQ sauce/condiments in the grocery store). Set aside.
2. Heat oven broiler to high or preheat grill. Combine honey, garlic, and mustard. Place pork chops on broiler pan/grill and cook for 4-5 minutes. Turn and cook another 4-5 minutes. You want the internal temperature to be at least 165 (that's a little pink inside), but you also don't want to overcook them because they will become tough. You may need to adjust your cooking times a little, bearing in mind that they have two minutes to cook after the initial 8-10 minutes.
3. Baste with honey mustard mixture and cook an additional minute. Turn and baste other side; cook for one additional minute. Remove from heat and allow to stand a few minutes to seal in the juices.
