Pork Chops with Dijon Herb Sauce

A very simple and healthy meal that takes no time at all on a busy weeknight. These pork chops have a lot of flavor and were great served with simple buttered egg noodles.

  • 1 tsp butter
  • 4 pork chops, 1 inch thick, trimmed of visible fat
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cup fat free/low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (parsley, chives, tarragon)
In a large saute pan heat the butter over moderately low heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Raise heat to medium, add the chops to the pan and sauté for 7 minutes. Flip and cook until pork chops are browned and done to medium, about 7-8 minutes longer. Remove the pork chops and tent with foil to keep warm.

Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and boil until it reduces to 1/2 cup, about 3 minutes. Stir in the mustard, herbs, and 1/8 tsp pepper. To serve, spoon sauce evenly over pork chops.
