Marinated Pork Chops

2 tbl Dijon mustard
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
black pepper to taste
1/2 c. maple syrup (sugar-free works fine)
1 lb pork loin chops

Combine mustard, oil, lemon juice, garlic, pepper and maple syrup in a bowl.

Put the pork chops in a zip-lock plastic bag. Pour the marinade over them, seal bag, and squish the bag to distribute the marinade over the chops.

Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F. Cover a baking pan with aluminum foil and spray it with cooking spray. Remove the chops from the marinade and place in the baking pan. Bake 20-25 min.

If desired, pour the marinade into a small saucepan and boil for 2 minutes. Serve the chops drizzled with the heated marinade (do not use the marinade as a sauce without boiling it first).
