Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Six 6-ounce boneless center-cut pork chops, trimmed of any fat
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire or soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Sprigs fresh parsley, for garnish

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together mustard, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic salt with 1/3 cup water. Pour over pork chops. Reduce heat, cover, and cook until tender, about 1 hour.

  3. Step 3

    Transfer pork to a serving platter. Raise heat to medium-high and cook sauce until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce over pork chops; garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

    Wonderful! Very easy. I agree with other comments - double the liquid or at least add more water - it will cook out anyway.

    These were super easy and my boys loved them. And the house smelled fantastic while they were cooking!!

    I've made these many times since first seeing the segment on the show. I also double the recipe for the liquid. These pork chops come out so tender and delish!

    When I tried this recipe, I doubled the recipe for the braising liquid. I couldn't imagine how so little liquid would last an hour even at the lowest simmer. They turned out great and there was a little sauce for the chops at the end. I've recommended the recipe to several friends, noting my adjustment, of course! Give these another try!

    I tried this - sounded great - but the water mix was completely gone after 30 minutes and burnt!! Is the timing in step 2 correct?
