Pork Chops with Dijon Herb Sauce




This is the best way to prepare pork chops. They come out juicy and full of flavor. I have been making this recipe for years from one of my Food and Wine cookbooks. My husband is not a fan of pork chops, but he loves them when I prepare them like this. You can use any fresh herbs, but I always use chives and parsley since I have them in my garden. Here's the recipe modified slightly to keep it light.



Pork Chops with Dijon Herb Sauce
Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 4 • Serving Size: 1 chop • Old Points: 4 pts • Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 166.5 • Fat: 9.2 g • Carb: 2.6 g • Fiber: 0.2 g • Protein: 16.4 g

Ingredients:
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 4 pork chops (22 oz with bone, fat removed), 1 inch thick, trim all visible fat
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 3 tbsp chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup fat free chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp chopped, fresh herbs like parsley, chives

Directions:

In a large frying pan heat the butter over moderately low heat. Season pork with salt and pepper.  

Raise heat to medium and add the chops to the pan and sauté for 7 minutes. Turn and cook until chops are browned and done to medium, about 7-8 minutes longer. Remove the chops and put in a warm spot.

Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the stock and boil until it reduces to 1/2 cup, about 3 minutes. Stir in the mustard, herbs, and 1/8 tsp pepper. Put the chops on a platter and pour the sauce over the meat.

Food and Wines says it is ok if the pork chops are pink in the center. Trichinosis is killed at the relatively low temperature of 150°. I use a thermometer to check the center and usually leave it until it hits 160°. Don't overcook or they will become dry.

    1. I replaced all the seasonings and herbs with Original Mrs. Dash and used butter made with EVOO to lower the sodium. It was awesome! I had a small issue with the sauce but this sauce is very simple and easy to fix by just adding a little water swirl and add more water and swirl until you get the right consistency.

  4. We made this dish last night and it was wonderful. I almost felt as if I were eating at a good restaurant -- you know, like someone cared about what they were serving for dinner?

  5. @POD, lol, I care! I try to put great recipes, the ones that don't come out great, I don't post. Glad you liked it, this one is a favorite. I tried it with chicken but not as good.

  6. Hey Gina!

    I wanted to make this tonight, I have some boneless pork chops in the refrigerator, does it make any difference?

    ReplyDelete
  7. No, I don't think so, it should come out the same I would imagine.

    1. I made them with boneless pork chops and they turned out great. My family loved them!

  9. Made this for the family over the weekend...was an instant hit!!! looked, smelled and tasted like a restaurant meal..my husband is still talking about it!

    Thanks Gina!

  10. I tried this recipe recently and this was by far the best pork chops I have ever had. The only thing I did differently was add a handful of dried cranberries right after the onions. Definitely an A+.

  11. I made these tonight and it was the best pork chops I have ever had. My family was so impressed. Thank you so much for your recipes. I come here everyweek to plan my menu.

  12. I made these chops and my wife can't stop talking about them. It's a great recipe and comes together very nicely. Will have to try some of your others.

  13. I made this last night for dinner and.... OMG is all I can say. I did add garlic to is as my husband and I love garlic in everything. Even my husband said this was a keeper and he is so picky. When we were eating I was thinking that you could add a dash of fat free half and half to make it a cream sauce and I bet it would be awesome and another twist to this wonderful recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yum!! I made this last night for dinner and we loved the sauce. I served it with whole wheat couscous and some steamed veggies. Yum again!! I can't wait to try more of your recipes!!

  15. These were amazing! We're hooked. Thanks!

  16. I'm excited to make them tonight. I couldn't find 1" thick porkchops though. I went to 3 different places, they only had thin. I hope it still works out. I'm asuming i'll just shorten the time and it would still be good. BTW, I LOVE this website...so much that i shared it to everybody!!! Thanks for making it exciting for WWers. :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. Thanks for sharing!! Yes, thin is fine, just cook them shorter as you said. This is an amazing pork chop recipe, you will love it!!! My husband doesn't care too much for pork chops but loves this recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Update: I made it last night and IT WAS A HIT!!! I just shortened the time and it worked. My friends came over for Lost night and that's what I served them. I was a little bit nervous because porkchops usually are tricky to cook... they are either undercooked or overcooked. This time, it was perfect! It was moisty and the sauce was delicious. My friend, who is pretty "high maintenance" and will tell you straight up if he doesn't like something, had 2 porkchops!!! I shared this website to my coworker and i told her about the porkchops and she's excited to try it too. THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING! Yeay!!!

  19. Hi Gina,
    LOVE your recipes! This one sounds great but we don't eat pork. Do you think it would work if I replaced it with veal chops (1st cut), and if so, would the points be the same?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Another home run!!!! These are sooo delicious and sooo easy to make! Made them for my friends tonight and they loved them!! Great idea when you are bored with your usual dinners! You always save the day! I am making the lentil soup with chicken tomorrow and I absolutely cannot wait!

  21. Hi Gina,

  22. Yes, I think this would be great with veal!! Not sure about the points off hand, I would have to check that.

  23. Amazing!!! Thank you for your easy and great recipes! I lost 3.3 lbs my fist week of Weight Watchers and it is in large part to you! Thanks!

  24. I've made these many, many times and we love them. Lately I've been serving them with your spinach rice which is also delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I made this with chicken breasts instead of pork... worked nicely. I lost over 12 pounds with your help! Thanks Gina!

  26. Any useful tips for marinating in advance? I'm a huge believer that by marinating meats, you get the best developed flavors possible.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree, but this recipe has a lot of flavor!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I made this for supper last night and it was WONDERFUL !! So much flavor and really tasted like I had spent hours on it and it was so quick and easy.Your site is amazing thank you so much!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Gina!!! YUUUUUUMMMM! I used thick boneless chops instead so the cooking time took longer but the end result was so good. That sauce is amazing for so few ingredients. I had a leftover one today for lunch with plenty of sauce...OMG so yummy. Thanks for getting me back into using fresh herbs - it makes all the difference.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I know, So good! And fresh herbs are so much better in most recipes!! Glad you liked it :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I made this last night with the boneless chops, delicious! I had fresh rosemary, oregano, and thyme from my garden....my husband said it was a keeper! So easy, and I didn't have to buy a lot of strange ingredients like I sometimes find in my Cooking Light magazine. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  32. wow this was delicious! ill definetly be making this one every other week.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Had this for dinner tonight and my husband loved it! He loves the mustard. So easy to make and it does taste like something you would eat at a high end restaurant. Thanks Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  34. All of you were right. This dish was delicious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. My husband hates onions, do you think it would taste ok without them or are they able to be picked off?? It looks so good and I want to try it

    ReplyDelete
  36. You could use shallots instead of onions, or leave them in large pieces so he can pick them off.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So yummy! The best pork chops I've ever had!

    The pork chops still weren't quite cooked to my family's well done taste, so I added them back into the pan, added a little more stock, and let it simmer. So yummy - love the flavors!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know, the flavors work so well together. This has always been my favorite way to make pork chops.

  39. I found you because Cathy Zielske blog. I made this recipe here in Brazil and it turns out wonderful!

  40. Tried making this the other night and it was GREAT!! My fiance and I both loved it! We eat porkchops rarely, and when we do, it's a old family recipe. Now we have another option that is delicious and a good switch up! I LOVE this website - thank you!!!

  45. I think it would be delicious!!

  46. Oh my heavens, this was fantastic!!! I think it's the best thing I've ever cooked in my entire life and I've got a huge collection of wonderful recipes.

  51. I wish I could take full credit but I'm glad I could share this with you all. It's my favorite pork chop recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I made this dish tonight and it was wonderful. I am not a porkchop person and neither is my husband, but I thought we would try it. the only variation I made was i added Quartered mini portabella mushrooms and a bit more chicken broth since the mushrooms suck up some of the juice. it was great! thanks for the wonderful recipes

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love the idea, I think I may try that and post it as a new recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I calculated this with the new PointsPlus recipe builder and got 4 points per serving. Note that I used 4 lean boneless pork chops and fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hey Gina! Can you re-calculate thi one? Its my fav!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love these. They have become a staple for us. My kids love them too!

    ReplyDelete
  57. So delicious I practically licked my plate. I used only 2 boneless chops, but made the same amount of the sauce - glad I did as I wanted that extra sauce on my chop. I used red onion instead of white. Another winner for sure, Gina.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I tried this recipe tonight and it was so good!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Mmmmm! We had these for supper tonight and they are SO GOOD and SO EASY!!! I used boneless chops and they tasted wonderfully. My husband was a bit paranoid about eating them because my meat thermometer was only reading 120 (its a dial kind, not digital), but the meat was white and fully cooked. Either way, it was super tasty and we will definitely make this again!

  60. Hi Gina
    I run a small catering business & found your website 2 weeks ago, your recipes are awesome!!
    I cook dinners for a family that wants ww meals so the Mom can loose weight but the ww cookbook recipes can be short on flavor, I also need ww meals now that the holidays are over & needed meals that my husband would eat also, you have solved that problem, my husband has loved every recipe I have gotten from you! The comments help also as I cook 3 dinners a week for my customer so they need to taste good reheated so I always look for those comments. This Pork Chop recipe is yummy, using fresh herbs is key, I try and use the same herbs in a few dishes per week so I don't throw too much away, not being summer I have to buy them. I made the oven fried Sweet potatoes with the pork, they were good too, I added some cinnamon instead of paprika, tried cayenne pepper on some butit was a little too spicy so I will stick with the cinn or paprika next time. Also have to tell you the Chicken Francese was amazing will be making that again this week, my picky husband loved it! was confused with flouring before egging the cutlets, (so ingrained the other way)but I followed directions and what a fab dish will definatley serve to my friends. Just had to write you and thank you for sharing your recipes, Keep them coming!Val Bell sag harbor ny

  61. I think it's such a great idea having catering with WW points! What a great service you are offering people! So happy you are enjoying the recipes you've tried so far, here's a tip with fresh herbs, wash them, roll them in plastic wrap in small portions and freeze them. When you need the herb, remove a portion from the freezer, it thaws quick, and use it as you normally would.

    1. Hi Gina,
      Does that tip work well with cilantro? I love cilantro so much, but I am the only one in my family who loves it, so I am always wasting cilantro. I will freeze it this way if it thaws well! Thanks for such a great website!

  62. HI Made this recipe Tues night for dinner and BF really said he liked it, the flavor were awesome and so easy to make!

    Had leftovers last night and BF said he really do enjoy it and it really was a restaurant quality dinner, which made me so happy:)

    Thanks for all your hard work putting this site together. Off to look for a recipe for tonight.

  63. I made these Tuesday night for my daughter's family and it was a big hit! Everyone loved it, even the grand kids! Didn't plan very well though, as our plates weren't very colorful. We had brown rice, your roasted cauliflower (yum) and the pork chops. At least the salad added some green :-)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I, like your husband, am not a big fan of pork chops, so when my hubby requested them for dinner my first thought was, "I bet Gina has a good recipe for these!" Boy, was I right. I absolutely LOVED these! I said it was kind of fancy, and my husband even said it was like "grown up food"... No hint of Mrs. Dash OR applesauce anywhere to be found. LOL I don't usually cook with Terragon, but ooh, what a great flavor! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  65. This was wonderful! Thanks for the recipe. I posted a review on my blog.

  67. Yummy! I used shallots instead of onions and it was so tasty. I discovered how much I love shallots after I made your chicken thighs with shallot vinegar sauce. Also, I didn't have any fresh herbs so used dry and it was still flavorful!

    ReplyDelete
  68. This was delicious! I did add crimini mushrooms & used vegetable broth instead of chk., also added a splash of red wine & let reduce a bit...excellent flavor! Can't wait to make it again.

  72. My picky 7 yr old doesn't like pork, onions or mustard. He loved these pork chops! Impressive. I really enjoyed the flavor. I would make this for company. I've made 4 of your recipes so far and love that they are perfect as is, no tweaking. You really take away the guessing.

  86. So I had some pork chops in the fridge and wanted to find a new way to cook them. After making your yummy pineapple cupcakes this weekend I found this recipe. OMG! DELICOUS!!!! I absolutely loved it. My husban went nuts over it. Usually he says something tastes fine or if he hates it he says nothing. Tonight he went on for an hour about how that was fancy reataurant quality dinner!!! I made some baked seasoned red potato wedges and peas to go with it. The wedges went perfectly. Not only was this so tasty but very easy to make. There is a little prep but overall very simple.

  96. I made a ton of these pork chops the other day because I had picked up a bunch of the pork on clearance at a local grocery store. I figured we could eat them for lunch or whatever. Well, they weren't getting eaten fast enough. I came up with a recipe/dish to help use the leftover meat and sauce (of which I also made a ton).

    Here's what I did:

    Diced up (in medium chunks) the meat and put the pieces in the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking dish. I took a very large onion and a bunch of mushrooms and sauteed them in a pan. I took the mushroom mix and the meat and combined them all together and then took the leftover sauce and poured it over the meat mixture. I made homemade mashed potatoes and neatly put it on top and smoothed it out. I baked this at 375 degrees F. for about 30 minutes.

    It's just like shephard's pie, but oh so much better!!

  99. A keeper! I used shallots and olive oil instead of onions and butter. Could not have been easier to prepare. Served with a side dish of orzo and veges....cooked thin asparagus pieces and halved grape tomatoes right in the pasta water; finished with some toasted garlic and a teaspoon of olive oil prepared in the same pork chop/sauce pan so it picked up some of the flavor. The entire meal was done in less than an hour with only two pots.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Just made these and they are so delicious! I always have trouble with pork chops b/c sometimes they come out tough. This recipe is easy and delicious. I have a small herb garden and used lemon thyme, oregano and chives. Also used boneless 1" chops (that's what I had in freezer) and they came out great. Thanks Gina!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Amazing!! Just made this for my parents and they loved it! I used wholegrain mustard because i didnt have any Dijon, added mushrooms in the sauce and served with broad beans and garlic & chive mash potato!

  109. HI

    Just wondering if you use all the different herbs or do you just choose one and use?

    Bev

    ReplyDelete
  110. Loved these when I made them last night, but needed to add a lot more broth (I doubled it, but could have added more, then reduced more) to get the amount of sauce I wanted. Still delicious, though! Substituted green onion for onion, and used cilantro as my herb.

    ReplyDelete
  111. This was delicious!!! Can't wait to make again :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. My husband made these last night. AMAZING. We all loved them, even my 2 year old.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Good stuff! I think my chicken stock simmered too long because my sauce wasn't very saucey more like spredable. Next time I won't simmer so long. Great flavor though.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I made these tonight with tarragon, and they were fantastic! All your recipes look so yummy!

    I'm confused about the calorie count, portion size, etc. I'm new to calorie counting, weighing food, etc. so I might be doing something wrong. Your recipe states 4 pork chops (22oz with bone), 1" thick, fat trimmed. I translate this to mean that each raw pork chop would be approx. 5.5oz including the bone weight, after the fat is trimmed. I could only find 1/2" thick chops, and after trimming the fat, the weight was approx 6.5oz. Using the nutritiondata.self.com calculator for pork, fresh, loin, center loin (chops), bone-in, separable lean only, raw, I calculated my chops to be approx 234 calories each. That is big difference from your serving size portion of 166 calories. I calculated my recipe per serving as 263 calories. I didn't expect that much difference, especially since my chops were 1/2" thinner that the recipe called for. What am I doing wrong? Thanks! Scarlett

    ReplyDelete
  115. This was wonderful. I used boneless 1/2 inch chops because that is what I had on hand. I was out of fresh herbs so I used a tablespoon of tastefully simple dill mix and it was still great. The entire family enjoyed this meal.

    ReplyDelete
  116. These pork chops were wonderful. I really appreciate the specific cooking instructions - the result was tender, moist chops that had a great flavor. I didn't have fresh herbs so I used dried tarragon and parsley - very good. Also, I added mushrooms. We like sauce, so next time I will not cook the sauce down quite as much. First time I have made something in a while that my husband said "amazing"!

    ReplyDelete
  117. This looks lovely, do you think it would work in a slow cooker/crockpot? Thanks for all your yummy recipes!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I made these last night and the sauce was incredible. I love this recipe- this will be how I make all porkchops from now on!

    I love your blog, Gina- I use ziplist on my iPhone to upload all your recipes and convert them to my weekly shopping list! SO convenient and healthy.

  120. This looks good but I wondered if you think it would work without the onions? My husband can't eat them, which can be a challenge since so many recipes use them. Will this lose all it's flavor without them? Any suggestions for substitutes?

  121. Wow! These were the best pork chops ever! I made them over the weekend and the family asked for them again, so I made them tonite. Just a few minor tweeks, 4 chops would never be enough for us, I have an eating machine teenager, so I used a family sized pkg instead. To make up for the difference, I just added a bit more chicken broth, dijon, and a little more chopped onion, and 1 Tbs of flour, to give the sauce just a little more body. Gina, you are a godsend! I feel like with you, I can get to goal weight (this time). Thank you sooo much!!!

  122. This recipe was amazing and so easy to make. I didn't have Dijon on hand so I did a mix of regular mustard and wasabi. Sounds strange but it was really good. This will definitely make it into my rotation.

  127. Made these for dinner tonight and they were delisth! I didn't have any Dijon so used regular mustard instead and they still turned out great. YUM!

  128. I have made many pork chop recipes and this recipe by far surpasses all of them. I couldn't stop at one serving, this makes for a very healthy and delicious meal!! you don't need dijon either, i made mine with another type of mustard and they came out perfect. I also wasn't afraid to throw in some thyme. delicious!!!

  130. I thought I made a recipe from this website, that was a pork loin chop that was breaded with italian bread crumbs, and then you put it in the crockpot.I can't find it anywhere??? My husband loved them. By the way I love this site...made several of the recipes and dressings etc... You are a fabulous cook!

  131. So Yummy. I used boneless pork chops but I would prefer a thicker chop so I don't over cook. I've never used butter before frying my chops and they browned so much better than EVOO. Super tasty. We loved it. The gravy went nice over a baked potato

  132. I made these tonight and some of the comments my husband made were, "I would eat these every night!" and "These were a knock-!" I am not a huge fan of pork chops, but I LOVED these! I cut and chopped everything the night before and put everything in individual containers in the fridge. It made making this dish a snap. Will definitely make this again and again!

  133. Sorry for the double post, but some of my words didn't post above. My husband said, "There were a knock-out; I'm having seconds!"

    Thanks again for the delish recipe!

  134. This was absolutely delicious!! I used boneless pork chops and accidentally let my sauce reduce to a thicker consistency. The results were still out of this world. This is one of my favorite recipes on this site. Thanks, Gina!!

    ReplyDelete
  135. These pork chops were awesome! I usually avoid making chops on the stove because they always seem to come out too tough. Not these! I used parsley and tarragon, and actually finished them in the sauce, covered on low for a few minutes, turning them in the sauce. I served them with your Cauliflower puree which was also delicious! Thanks !

  136. Loved this!I made this with sliced pork tenderloin...added worchestershire to the sauce and while it was simmering I added 3/4 cup of skim milk with 2 tablespoons of flour to thicken the sauce and served it with whole wheat noodles...my whole family loved it. I love your recipes. They make eating healthy feel good and taste great.

  137. Awesome! I made this per the recipe with three thick bone in pork chops. Absolutely delicious, so good in fact my 3 year old who doesn't like meat said "Mommy! I like pork chops!". I used fresh thyme and paired them with your Roasted Green Beans and some sauteed mushrooms. Epic dinner and going into my permanent rotation. Thank you for your wonderful recipes, I am NEVER disappointed.

  138. Hi Gina, you are amazing!!! I'd like to make this recipe using a pork tenderloin. Do you think that would work? Should I cut the tenderloin into medallions or just leave it whole?

    ReplyDelete
  139. Just tried this meal tonight, halving the meat but keeping everything else quantity wise the same except for using one red onion, wholegrain mustard and more than the quantity of stock as we like a lot of sauce. Used dried herbs and served with rice, even with all the minor changes your recipe was just brilliant. Thank you very much for a quick and easy dish to add to the rotation!

  140. I made these last night, I added 3 cloves of garlic and used boneless chops. These were amazing!!! My kids devoured them and they have no idea how healthy they are! Thanks again Gina.

  142. SO GOOD. I used boneless chops and put in shallots instead of onions and it was excellent. Made with roasted potatoes and asparagus. I also only made 2 chops but the full sauce amount so we could soak it up with the potatoes.

  143. made this tonight using lean boneless loin chops, I used fresh rosemary and thyme from my garden. It was delish!!! Served with mashed potato, steamed broccoli and peas.

    Hi Gina! Love your recipes! I have so much fun checking out your new ones that you post, and I have probably "pinned" more than half of yours :) I do have a quick question for this recipe (which sounds amazing!).. Do you think fresh Thyme would go well with or even fresh basil? I do not have parsley or any other fresh herb.

    Thanks!

  146. I am eating dish this as i write this comment...Delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  147. I have a question, I HATE mustard...I want to try this but need to ask first, does the mustard leave the porkchops tasting like mustard? I know that sometimes the ingredients are simply used to enhance the flavor and you don't actually taste it, I am really hoping that this is the case with this! If it does come off tasting like mustard do you have any other suggestion to replace it??? Thanks!

  148. My 11 year old son made this last night. It was so delicious. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!

  149. WOW!! This is my new favorite way to eat pork chops. My husband and children ask for these regularly. I have tried many herbs from the garden in this recipe (dill, chives, etc...) and they always turn out amazing!!

    Made this today and instead of adding the herbs and mustard at the end I added it when I put in the chicken broth and let it simmer down and it was delicious!!

  151. OMG I made this tonight and they were awesome, I will make this again. Two thumbs up!!

  152. I'm making this today with apple cider instead of chicken broth, and sage, parsley, and chives. Serving with your crockpot applesauce, roasted cabbage, and cranberry wheat berry salad. So excited for dinner!

  153. Hi! I made these last night and they were delicious. I must be calculating something wrong when I enter it into my WW recipe builder, though. It says that 1/4 of 22 oz of lean pork chop is 6 pts. Was the 22 oz before the fat and bone was removed? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  154. I made these and they were delicious! My family ate them and I will say that we will most surely be making it again soon! Great recipe, yum!!

    ReplyDelete
  155. I made this with tarragon too and it was delicious!! I thought i read that tarragon was included on this recipe so i used it and when I went back it never said to use it...oh well! It was delicious with it and a must for this recipe!

  156. I made this recipe over the weekend & it was fantastic! I have yet to try a recipe from your site that hasn't been tasty and easy to prepare. I regularly suggest your site to friends and family. Thanks so much!

  158. Hi Gina, I LOOOOVE your recipes... haven't had anything I didn't like. BUT, my family isn't a dijon fan.. but wondering how it'll taste pairing it... any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  159. This is soooo delicious. My husband is leary of any pork chop not made the traditional way (think pork chops and applesauce). He absolutely loved this and so did I. We had one left over and I took it to work the next day,smothered in the sauce. I nuked it for about a 1.5min and it was still so tender and delish! Love this!

    ReplyDelete
  160. This receipt was great. My husband enjoyed it...he gets a little cautious when I try a new receipt....it more often than not ends up tasting pretty bad...But this was a hit.
    It was very easy to prepare too!

  161. This recipe and the Pork Chops with Mushrooms and Shallots are my favorite ways to cook pork! I'm not really a pork eater, but this is amazing. Love the mashed cauliflower too!

  162. These are so delicious! I always serve with butternut squash and brocolli. This is one of our favorite weight watchers meals.

  163. YUM. served with creamed cauliflower and it was delicious!

  164. I have been looking for a really good really easy thick pork chop dish and I have found it. These pork chops really do taste like a 5 star restaurant meal. The only thing I changed was cooking the pan seared chops in the gravy while reducing the sauce and bringing the chops up to 150. Cooking them 7 minutes on one side and 7 minutes on the other did not bring them up to 150. Other than that this recipe is perfect. Thanks for posting :)

    ReplyDelete
  165. I can't stop saying "this was good." lol. I paired it with the cilantro lime rice and made Mac and cheese for my husband and cub. So juicy and full of flavor. Will definitely make this again!!

    ReplyDelete
  166. Yum! Such a tasty, easy meal. We used thick, boneless chops and had your roasted corn on the cob and some sauteed veggies with parm. Quick yet so full of flavor. Thanks!

  170. I used a center cut pork roast and cut up into chops :) Loved it! My husband was drinking the sauce lol!

  171. hi Gina!! Thanks for sharing, you are amazing!! Do you think I could use spicy mustard instead of dijon?? That's all I seem to have in the fridge and I am dying to make it tonight!

    ReplyDelete
  172. I made this for dinner tonight and it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! The only thing I did different was let the pork chops simmer in the sauce while waiting for the sides to cook. I'm going to try this recipe using chicken, too!

    ReplyDelete
  173. Another super recipe! I love all your recipes, and my husband has enjoyed them as well! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  174. I made this for my family tonight with bacon-wrapped green beans and a roll. Maybe too much pork for one meal, but all enjoyed it! I was impressed with the flavors, texture, and the appearance of this meal. I will share this terrific recipe with my Facebook friends.
    Thank you for sharing!

  175. Did it work out using the spicy mustard?
