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.
- 4 thick-cut boneless pork chops
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper, divided
- 4 tablespoons canola oil, divided, more as needed
- 3⁄4 cup onion, thinly sliced
- 7 tablespoons cider vinegar, divided
- 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
- 2 tablespoons water
- 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.
- Add pork, cook 10-12 minutes or until slightly pink in center, turning once. Place on platter, cover loosely with foil.
- Add onions to same skillet, adding additional oil if skillet is dry. Cook over medium heat 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently.
- 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.
- 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.
