Pork Chops With Onion Sauce

Total Time

Very tasty sauce to place on your pork chops. The original recipe (from Cooking Pleasures magazine) calls for shallots and whole-grain Dijon mustard for the first mustard, and smooth Dijon for the second use. I'm not that fancy, and just used smooth. I'm also not that smart; the original recipe called for 2 T plus 2 tsp. mustard, but I misread, and used 2 T both times, and it came out very tasty. You may want to adjust according to your tastes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 t. salt and 1/8 t. pepper. Heat large skillet over medium heat until hot. Add 1 T oil, heat until hot.
  2. Add pork, cook 10-12 minutes or until slightly pink in center, turning once. Place on platter, cover loosely with foil.
  3. Add onions to same skillet, adding additional oil if skillet is dry. Cook over medium heat 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Reduce heat to low, stir in 5 T of vinegar, 2 T mustard, 1/2 t. salt, and 1/8 t. pepper. Simmer 30-60 seconds, or until vinegar evaporates.
  5. Remove from heat, cool slightly. Whisk in 3 T oil, water, 2 T mustard (less if preferred), and 2 T vinegar. Serve sauce over pork.

I really liked this recipe, especially as I don't like the taste of plain pork chops. It was pretty easy, although I think I may have used a bit too much cider vinegar. Also, the dijon mustard taste is a bit strong as I was finishing eating it, so I think next time I'll add a bit of regular mustard to tone it down. I used three smaller pork chops, and had one the next day on an english muffin for lunch, very good! Sorry the pictures came out a bit fuzzy, I didn't notice that until I had already eaten the meal and uploaded the pics.
