Rosemary Mustard Pork Chops

Pork chops are not something that I put on the menu very frequently, and I have no idea why.  I guess I just forget about them.  But I’m going to try to change that because these were delicious!

I only cooked 2 chops, but I used the full amount of sauce because we like things saucy.  😉 I served them with a tossed salad and baked potato, but noodles, rice or mashed potatoes would have been better to soak up some of the sauce.

Sorry for the bad picture!

Ingredients

4 thick pork chops {I used 2}

1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. brown mustard {yellow, spicy, or any other kind will do}

1 Tbsp. soy sauce

1/4 Cup chicken stock

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 Tsp. paprika

1 Tbsp. dried rosemary {I’ll use about 1/2 that next time}

1 Tsp. black pepper

1 Tsp. salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°.

Preheat saute pan/frying pan to medium high heat and dry the chops with a paper towel.

Combine soy sauce, mustard, brown sugar and rosemary in a bowl; mix together.

Season pork with salt and pepper.

Add the chops to pan and begin to sear on one side, about 3-4 minutes. Once complete on one side, flip and do the same on other side.

Remove and place on plate.

De-glaze the pan by adding the chicken stock and scraping all the bits off the bottom of the pan.

Add the sauce mixture from step 3 and let thicken for 2 minutes.

Add the chops back to the pan and place into the oven to finish the cooking process; about 12 minutes. {I get nervous about fully cooking meat, so I baked them for about 20 minutes.}

Remove from oven, baste with sauce.

Enjoy!
