Pork Chops with Wine Mustard Sauce:

This is an easy and elegant weeknight meal for two and could easily be doubled for the whole family.  The tanginess of the mustard is great with pork.

  • 2 thick pork chops
  • 1 shallot diced fine
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine (chardonnay)
  • 2 tsp.Dijonmustard
  • 1 Tbls. butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Lightly salt and pepper the chops, add a little olive oil to a frying pan and over medium to medium high heat fry the pork chops to get a nice sear on both sides (2 minutes per side) remove from pan.

Add Shallots to pan and sauté until soft and translucent, then add wine, mustard and butter and cook down for a few minutes.  Add chops back and cook until sauce has thickened and chops are cooked through.

Serve with sauce over the chops.  Good with potatoes (mashed or baked) and roasted asparagus or green beans.  To drink, I must say Chardonnay or a Czech Pilsner such as Staropromin.

Cook’s Note:  Sparkle it up with some fresh herbs such as thyme, marjoram or oregano.
