Pork Chops with Dijon Herb Sauce



Shout out to "The Skinny Taste" for this FABULOUS sauce recipe which I took and adapted slightly for my needs!!!!! It was seriously the BOMB!

I am LOVING this new 2B Mindset nutrition plan I've been following which has a far more flexible and practical approach to everyday nutrition.

For dinner the concept is to focus on veggies most with some protein and a few "accessories" as needed for added flavor/pizzazz!

I had some pork chops marinating this weekend using the marinade from this recipe and I cooked them yesterday.  But tonight for dinner I felt like switching up how I was planning to use them and came across a healthy dijon sauce from Skinny Taste!


  • Easy
  • Quick
  • Healthy
  • And something I had all the ingredients for at home!


Ticked all my boxes!!!

Although I had my pork chops pre-cooked there was a decent amount of juices for me to use that I added to my sauce but I'm going to lay out the recipe below for those who might not pre-cook their pork ahead of time.

Pork- prepare marinade from this recipe and marinade for 3 hours to overnight. When ready to cook proceed to below ingredients and instructions.

Serves 3 (2 pork chops each)

Ingredients:


  • 6 medium marinated pork chops 
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup organic, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsps chopped fresh herbs (your choice)- I used curly parsley, chives and oregano.


Directions:


  1. In a large saucepan, sprayed with a little evoo spray, cook marinated pork chops over medium/high heat until no longer pink. Remove from pan.
  2. Reduce heat to med/low, add butter, onion and cook until softened (approx 3 mins)
  3. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce until slightly thickened. 
  4. Add dijon mustard and herbs.
  5. Optional- add pork to sauce to heat through and soak up some of the juices.


Serve with a couple of tbsps sauce over the pork chops with your choice of sides. I chose cauliflower mash and steamed broccoli and I have to say it was very filling and ridiculously tasty. Hard to believe there's no cream in this sauce!

Let me know if you try it below!
