Creamy Cider Dijon Pork Chops
Hi, friends! It’s so good to be back! As you might recall, I blog at The Seasoned Mom, where I share easy, quick-prep meals for busy families.
I truly believe that dinnertime doesn’t have to be difficult. At the end of a stressful, chaotic day, a simple homemade meal has the power to bring your family together and make you feel like Super Mom!
These skillet pork chops with a sweet-and-savory Cider Dijon cream sauce might sound a wee bit fancy, but I assure you they are not! I don’t do fancy…
Between soccer practices, homework, and commutes, the evening rush is already crazy enough. Simplify mealtime with a cozy and family-friendly weeknight dinner that comes together in less than 25 minutes. Plus, this dinner only requires one pan…making clean-up a cinch!
And there’s really no need to create any extra work for yourself — just open up a jar of applesauce (warmed in the microwave if you like) and slice a crusty loaf of bread to serve alongside. You’ll want something hearty to soak up all of the rich sauce!
Enjoy, and don’t forget to hop on over to my blog to say hi! You’ll find plenty of one-dish dinners that your kids are sure to love…
- 4 small boneless pork chops (about 1.3 lbs. total)
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- ½ cup apple cider
- 1 tablespoon wholegrain Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- Optional garnish: fresh rosemary
- Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Heat about 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Swirl to coat the pan. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 more minute.
- Add chops to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Remove chops to a plate and set aside.
- Pour cider into pan and scrape up the bits as you stir. Let the cider simmer for about 1 minute, then add mustard and stir in cream.
- Cook sauce for a few more minutes, then pour over chops and serve. Garnish with fresh rosemary, if desired.
