What's Cookin': Honey Mustard Pork Chops


Since one of the challenges of the month was only buying meat under $2.00 a pound, I picked up some pork chops the other day since they were the ONLY thing (aside from whole chickens) that were under 2 bucks. And then I had to figure out what to do with them. One night was carnitas in the crock pot. And the other night...

These! And there were delicious. I love honey mustard anything, so this was already going to be a win, but they turned out wonderful. The only downside? Cooking them made a mess with splatters, but it's all good.

The sauce did turn out a bit watery, so if you'd like it a bit thick you can simmer it for longer. 

Honey Mustard Porkchops
1 Tbs oil
4-5 pork chops (boneless or bone-in), about 1 inch thick
Salt & pepper to taste
2 Tbs honey
2 Tbs Dijon mustard
1/3 C chicken broth
Pinch of cayenne
1 tsp cold butter

Heat the oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Season the pork with salt & pepper on both sides, then place in the pan. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side, depending on the "doneness" you want. Remove from the pan and set aside on a plate.

Add the broth, honey, mustard and cayenne to the pan. Whisk together and let come to a simmer. Add the butter and swirl around in the pan until melted. Add the pork chops back in along with any juices. Coat with sauce. Serve with sauce drizzled on top.

Happy Eating,
Meg

Man, that sounds really good. I'm sitting here trying to come up with something vaguely interesting for dinner, and that at least sounds interesting. :-)
