These pan seared pork chops show that a quick weekday meal need not be complicated or boring. Our dinner tonight was these simply seasoned, pan fried pork chops.

They were complimented beautifully with a simple sauce comprised of only 4 ingredients.

We served these juicy chops with some simple pasta that was tossed with herbed garlic butter. Some steamed green beans completed a meal in minutes that tasted great.

The wine in the sauce is easily substituted for chicken stock and the wine doesn’t have to be dry. A little sweetness will help balance the slight sourness of the mustard.
