Juicy and tender lemon dijon pork chops, finished with a quick pan sauce, this is a great weeknight dinner, but special enough to serve to company!
Aaah, pork. We typically egg and breadcrumb our pork chops or make Parmesan Crusted ones, but thought I’d step outside the usual (although delicious) method of cooking.
The sauce is out of this world good. The recipe doesn’t make a LOT of sauce (it’s not gravy), but it packs a punch in the flavor stakes, so a little goes a long way. It flavors it just enough without being overkill.

What I LOVE about pork
It’s quick to cook, and relatively budget friendly. As long as you don’t overcook (dry, stringy pork is no one’s friend), pork is flavorful and versatile. This is really kicked up a notch by adding the pan sauce.
