Kathleen recently wrote about her trip to Foothill Grassfed Meats, where we get farm-raised chicken and pork. With all that newfound pork in the freezer, we realized it was time for making one of our favorite tasty pork recipes: Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce.
While I’m not going to reproduce the entire recipe here (it’s pretty much as described from the Simple Recpies link above), it’s worth pointing out two particularly awesome things about this recipe:
- It’s really, really tasty. You can vary the ratios, of onion, cream, and mustard to match your exact taste. For example, I add about 2-3 times the amount of mustard that is called for in the basic recipe. So you can experiment a lot and have something that tastes quite good but also a bit different each time you make it.
- All of the ingredients are things that we typically have on hand in our kitchen. Unless we’ve literally run out of pork, there’s no need to go running to the grocery store for anything. I love recipes that use basic, every-day ingredients but can still taste amazing.
I should apologize a bit here too. In our enthusiasm for this dish, we didn’t focus quite enough of taking a good picture of it. But believe me, these are some fine tasking pork chops.
