Lindsay is right. These pork chops are so easy and so delicious. Sweet and sour, they turn out tender and juicy. They're easy enough for a weeknight meal, but fancy enough for Sunday dinner with the family. If you like pork chops, this recipe needs to be in your dinner rotation.

How to Make Maple Mustard Pork Chops

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400.
  2. Combine 1 1/2 tsp of mustard with salt and pepper. Rub evenly over pork chops.
  3. Heat enough oil in a large skillet to lightly cover the bottom of your pan (~ 2 – 3 Tbsp). When oil is hot, gently sear pork until lightly brown on the outside (~ 1 min each side).
  4. Move pork to a baking dish and bake for 10 – 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chops (or the time could be less if using thin chops).
  5. While pork is baking, heat vinegar in the same skillet you just seared pork in. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  6. Whisk in mustard and syrup. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Stir in dried sage.
  7. When pork is done baking, place any additional drippings into the maple/mustard mix. Allow to simmer again until slightly thickened.
  8. Once mixture is thickened, remove from heat and serve over pork.
