Pork Chops in a Honey-Mustard Sauce Recipe
Pork chops are a great economical cut and cook up quickly, making them ideal for busy weeknight meals. But turning out tender chops can be tricky. Browning them first, then finishing them in this tangy, slightly sweet sauce results in perfectly cooked chops. —Susan Bentley, Burlington, New Jersey
