Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce

My husband and I don’t eat pork chops very often, but we tried this recipe a few weeks ago and loved it.  If you’re feeling like having something with a good salt factor, this is the meal for you!  We serve it with white rice to offset the salt and some stir-fried veggies.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp butter (We use light butter.)
  • 4 pork chops (22 oz with bone, fat removed), trimmed
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • fresh ground pepper, or to taste
  • 3 tbsp onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup fat-free chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp chopped, fresh or dried herbs like parsley or chives

Directions

  1. In a large pan, heat the butter over low-medium heat.
  2. On a separate plate, season pork well with salt and pepper.
  3. Increase to medium heat and add the pork chops to the pan, sauteing for about 7 minutes.
  4. Turn and cook the chops until  browned and cooked to medium, about an additional 7-8 minutes longer.  [Pork can dry out very easily, so keep a close eye on the chops.]
  5. Remove the chops from heat and set aside.
  6. Add the onion to the pan and saute for about 3 minutes.
  7. Add the stock and boil until it reduces to 1/2 cup, or about 3 minutes.
  8. Stir in the mustard, herbs, and approximately 1/8 tsp pepper.
  9. Put the chops on a platter, pour the sauce over the meat, and enjoy!
