Pork Chops with Maple Syrup and Mustard 

Total time: 30 minutes
   I used boneless chops for this, about 1/2" (1.25cm) thick.  They cooked quickly, but, remember, slightly pink pork is okay, and keeps it tender and moist. If you don't have maple syrup you can use honey, or even brown sugar.  It's a simple, flexible recipe!
