  • 6 boneless pork loin chops, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1/2 cup mild-flavored molasses or honey
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large onion-topped hamburger buns or Kaiser rolls, split
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise or mayonnaise
  • Leaf lettuce
  • 6 yellow and/or red tomato slices
  • 6 sweet onion slices, such as Vidalia, Walla Walla or Maui
  • Radish halves and/or cucumber slices (optional)


  1. Trim fat from chops. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
  2. For the marinade: In a medium bowl, combine apple cider, molasses, vinegar, soy sauce, mustard, ginger, hot pepper sauce, and salt. Pour marinade over pork. Seal bag; turn to coat pork. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Drain pork, discarding marinade.
  3. For a charcoal grill: Grill pork on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 7 to 9 minutes or until slightly pink in center and juices run clear (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  4. During the last 1 to 2 minutes of grilling, open the buns and place them cut-side down on the grill to lightly toast. Remove pork and buns.
  5. Spread buns with mayonnaise. Line bottom of buns with leaf lettuce; top with grilled pork, tomato slices, onion slices and bun tops. If you like, serve with radish halves and/or cucumber slices. Makes 6 sandwiches.
