Pork with Maple Dijon Sauce


We like to eat pork about once a week or so, and recently, my husband asked if I could make pork with sauce. So that's what I entered into my Google search, "pork with sauce," and I found the three ingredients for the sauce below, combined with my seasonings on the pork, and it turned out delicious! Give it a try!



Pork with Maple Dijon Sauce

4 boneless pork chops, thin cut
2 Tablespoons Onion Powder
2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon Ground Mustard
Salt and Pepper
1 Tablespoon butter

Sauce:
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

Mix maple syrup, brown sugar and mustard together and set aside.

IMG_2020-psHeat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter. When butter is melted, add pork and brown (approximately 2 minutes each side). If you weren't able to get thin-cut pork chops, lower heat to medium, add a couple of Tablespoons water and cover with a lid and cook 2 minutes or until the pork is cooked through. A meat thermometer should read 160 degrees. Remove to a plate. Add sauce to skillet and heat several seconds, scraping up any brown bits in the skillet.

This pork is delicious and is good served over a bed of greens, or with rice and a green vegetable. The kids and I like to spoon the sauce over our rice, so if this sounds good to you, I would suggest doubling the sauce recipe.
