Pork chop marinade

It’s been scorching hot here in Southern California and it’s really hard to believe that fall is officially here in a few days. It’s seriously been in the 90s this week and while I would love to start preparing some pumpkin items, I just can’t quite bring myself to do that when it’s so hot outside.

This week was a good week for TV. The finale of Masterchef was on and I was completely surprised at who won but I still love watching it. I just love watching the home cooks create recipes with creativity and passion. The show inspires me to create dishes and rethink plating them. Have you seen the dishes on the show? They are beautifully done.Stovetop Pork Chops with Mustard Sauce


A couple of weeks ago Elizabeth on Masterchef made a wonderful pork dish with a mustard sauce, so I was inspired to make a simplified version with pork chops and they came out really good.
These simple stove top pork chops are SO good. The whole family loves them!
There is just something about the mustard sauce that offers just enough tanginess to make it taste like a complicated recipe, when it truly only takes a handful of ingredients. 
I like to use boneless pork chops for this recipe as they cook a little faster, but you can absolutely make this with bone-in pork chops if you like.



Then I make a sauce in the same pan (why dirty another one).




And before you know it, you have a tasty dinner.

Great tasty porkchop dinner to make on your stove!

This is great for weeknights too! I think next time I might add some mushrooms to the sauce.



So delicious and easy to make!
