Honey Mustard Pork Chops

A weeknight staple gets dressed up with a delicious sauce.

January 23, 2017

A weeknight staple gets dressed up with a delicious sauce. This foolproof recipe for tender, moist pork chops got the seal of approval from our pickiest eater.

Serves four. 


  • 4 extra-thick-cut bone-in pork chops, about 1/2 pound each
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Honey Mustard Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons country style or regular Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a broiler pan with nonstick spray.

Pat the surface of the pork chops dry with a paper towel and season each side liberally with salt and pepper.

Add olive oil to a heavy skillet over medium-high heat, and cook pork chops to seal in the juices, about five minutes per side, until nicely browned.

Transfer the pork chops to the prepared broiler pan and spread the honey mustard sauce liberally over each chop. Bake for 30 minutes, until an instant-read meat thermometer registers 145 degrees.

Remove chops from oven, turn on broiler and set rack so chops will be about six inches under the broiler. Broil for three to five minutes, until tops are bubbling and browned.

Let rest for five minutes and serve hot, accompanied with roasted squash or cooked mixed greens.

I've made something like this with similar flavors before, but I bet with this recipe it will come out even better! Can't wait to try it. I think pork chops are on sale at Costco right now.
