Pork Chops in a Honey-Mustard Sauce

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

    I made this with one pork loin steak, just for me! Didn't use wine, and guessed the amount of chicken stock, mustard, honey - just threw it in and waited for it to reduce before adding creme fraiche (didn't have cream) then put the pork steak back into the pan for a few minutes as suggested. Delicious - what a beautiful sauce, and so easy. Will definitely make this again for the family.

    Great flavor, easy to put together. I think I could have let the sauce thicken a bit more next time.
