Love the website. So informative & easy to navigate
anted to take a moment to share some thoughts abouut the Vacations by Design Hartford Holidays experience and compliment one of the travel professionals, Beth Schmidt. We have been working with Beth planning a luxury cruise in January. We have found Beth to be caring, professional and very helpful during this process. She has been in touch with us all the way and has given her recommendations and suggestions which has helped this to be a smooth planning experience. If Beth is an example of the quality of the Vacations by Design professionals we will be using them often moving forward. Thank you Beth!

One of our chefs go-to favorite meal is pork chops with grilled apples. The sweetness of the apples and the savoriness of the grilled pork chops make a flavor packed combination. With this recipe we’re grilling both, bringing a charred flavor into the mix as well. These grilled pork chops topped with sweet apples are the perfect quick and easy dinner any night of the week



4-6 bone in pork chops, about 1/2" thick

Pinch of kosher salt on each chop


3 Honeycrisp apples, cut into 1/2" slices with seeds removed

2 tbsp melted butter

3 tbsp honey

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tsp fresh ground cinnamon


1/2 cup apple jelly

1 tbsp Honey

1 tbsp butter

2 tsp Dijon mustard

1/4 tsp Ancho chili powder

1/2 tsp cinnamon


1. Light grill and set up high direct heat.

2. Rinse pork chops and pat dry, seasoning both sides of chops with a pinch of salt.

3. Using a basting brush, coat both sides of apple slices with melted butter and place on a wire cooling rack. Sprinkle both sides evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon.

4. Melt apple jelly and butter in a small saucepan over low heat, whisking until it's smooth and the consistency of syrup. Continue whisking while adding honey, Dijon mustard, Ancho chili, and cinnamon. Keep warm and set aside.

5. Place pork chops and apples over direct heat area on grill.

6. Cook apples about 6 minutes per side or until they're nicely browned and grill marks are formed.

7. Cook pork about 4 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 140℉ as indicated by an instant read thermometer.

8. Remove from grill, drizzle apples with honey, and pork chops with warm glaze.

9. Garnish as desired and serve.
