Instructions Checklist
  • Mix honey and mustard together in a bowl until thoroughly combined.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and lay pork chops into the hot butter. Sprinkle chops with half the garlic powder and cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn chops over, sprinkle with remaining garlic powder, and pan-fry chops for 3 more minutes.

  • Brush honey mustard sauce over chops, turn them over, and cook for 5 minutes; turn chops onto other side and brush with honey mustard sauce. Cook until chops are no longer pink inside and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chop reads 165 degrees F (75 degrees C), about 5 more minutes.

Fixed as written. It lacked flavor, and I even used spicy brown mustard. I think it would benefit from salt, chopped garlic and even some red pepper flakes. I also think it would be better if it were just browned in the pan, then covered with the mustard mixture and baked covered in the oven. I will give that a try Before I give up on the recipe Read More

I rarely review a recipe, but this one is so good, it deserves a review. This is a restaurant quality recipe! I made it with sweet and hot stone ground mustard instead of yellow mustard, because that is what I had. I think the yellow mustard would also have been delicious, but the stone ground mustard looks really pretty. I did like some other reviewers and browned the chops, then cooked them at 400 degrees for thirty minutes in the oven. I also cut up some small red potatoes and cooked them around the chops. My, oh my!!! That was soooo good! I served them with some green beans, which were good, but I think something a little more "green" to bring a little brightness to the dish would have really elevated it. Try this recipe. You will be glad you did! Read More

I used Cajun seasoning on the chops with browning. Covered with sauce and baked them off in a 400 degree oven for 30 min. Very, very good and easy. Oh, I also used dijon mustard. YUM!! Read More

This dish was fabulous! After reading a lot of reviews, I made a few changes. We like a lot of sauce, so I used 1/2 C. of honey, 3 Tbsp of spicy brown mustard, 1Tbsp stone ground mustard, & 1/2 Tbsp Mrs Dash garlic-herb blend. For the spice rub, I used 1Tbsp of the same garlic-herb blend, 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, and 1/4 tsp salt. I used 5 thick pork chops & the spice mix covered both sides of the chops well. I also added 1 Tbsp olive oil with the butter to sear the meat. After searing both sides, I reduced the heat to low & brushed a small amount of the sauce mix on them & browned both sides again-watching to keep them from burning. I finished them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes, covered. I got rave reviews from my husband and son, so this will definitely be added to our meal rotation. Read More

Cooking times were way off. Would be better to brown in the pan then bake. I ended up with a charred mess in the pan and black pork chops. The flavor was decent, minus the char. Read More

This recipe was ok, but I found it to be bland just as is the first time I tried it, so I added a little salt and pepper, garlic and sliced Vidalia onions and baked it, covered, on 375 for 45-50 minutes, instead of pan frying them. I found them to be much moister and the flavour was much better the second time round. Read More
