Pork Chops with Mustard Cream Sauce

My husband loves “bistro” mustard cream sauce.  When eating this the other night he said ” I LOVE weeknight meals like this!” This quick recipe is from Food and Wine.  I served it with roasted potatoes, and creamy baked acorn squash.  I will definitely make it again.

  • 4 (10-ounce) pork rib chops, 1-inch thick
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar or sherry vinegar
  • 1/2 cup veal stock or low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat half of the oil until shimmering. Add the pork chops and cook over moderate heat until golden, turning once, 8 minutes. Transfer the meat to a baking sheet and roast until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, pour off the fat from the skillet. Add the remaining oil and heat until shimmering. Add the shallot and cook over moderately high heat until softened, 3 minutes. Add the vinegar and cook until nearly evaporated, about 1/2 minute. Add the stock and cook until reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Add the cream and cook over moderately high heat until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Add the mustard and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the pork to plates and spoon the sauce on top.
