Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce Recipe

Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce Recipe

Here's a main course that tastes rich but isn't high in saturated fat. It's easy for weeknights, but the creamy sauce makes it special enough for weekends. —Bonnie Brown-Watson of Houston, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup fat-free half-and-half


  • 1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown chops in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. Stir broth into skillet, scraping up any browned bits. Stir in mustard and half-and-half. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-6 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Serve with pork chops. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was very good. I really like the mustard sauce. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

For the previous reviewer who asked where the canola oil is used, it is used to brown the chops....."brown chops in oil 4-5 minute.""

"This was good but not great. My family liked the smell but we were all hoping for a little bolder flavor with the sauce. I will try this again but I will play around with it a bit."

"I haven't made this yet, but it looks great! For those of you who have made you think it would be good with chicken instead of the pork chops?"
