Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops see note
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons oil

dijon cream sauce

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth I used low sodium
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper, or to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Generously season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Drizzle oil into the pan.
  • Add pork chops to the pan and sear on both sides for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • To prepare the sauce, add butter to the pan. Once melted, stir in garlic for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add chicken broth. Whisk in dijon mustard, then cream. Stir in salt and pepper.
  • Return pork chops to the pan, spoon some of the sauce over the pork chops, then transfer to the oven.
  • Cook for 10 minutes. Spoon liquid from the pan over the pork chops. Cook another 10-15 minutes until pork is cooked through and sauce is thickened.
  • Spoon more sauce over the pork chops, garnish with black pepper and fresh herbs if desired and serve.

Notes

I like to use really thick boneless pork chops because they retain a lot of moisture, but you can use thin pork chops for this recipe - just be sure to reduce the cooking time since they will cook more quickly!
