I love mustard! The pickled onion rings are a nice side, but you can skip it for another type of condiment, like olives or pickles.

Instructions Checklist
  • Mince enough of the red onion slices to have 1/3 cup minced onion.

  • Put remaining onion slices in a bowl and pour vinegar over them; marinate for 10 minutes. Drain and discard the vinegar.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper; fry in the hot oil until nicely browned and no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

  • Arrange pork chops onto serving plates; top each with a portion of the red onion slices.

  • Whisk minced onion, sour cream, Dijon mustard, and apricot preserves together in a bowl; serve with the pork chops.

The only change I made was to grill the pork chops rather than cook them on stovetop. The onions were really good done that way but I felt that the mustard sauce was missing something---I can't really put my finger on what it was. It could be that the onion wasn't really sharp enough to add the needed flavor that I thought it needed. Maybe I've been eating too many full-flavored foods lately! We did enjoy our dinner tonight so thanks Shelbylyn! Read More

Tried this tonight following recipe exactly. It was different for sure but not impressive. The sauce is ok but Dijon mustard is the flavor that stands out the most. I don't like onions so I didn't try them husband and son said they were ok. It was something different from our usual menu but not likely to make it again. Read More
