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.
Honey Mustard Sauce
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.
