Easy Honey Mustard Pork Chops


      Sometimes you just need a quick and easy meal.  You know how it is, after a long day when you stumble in the door and see those hungry faces staring at you wondering what is for dinner.  Dinner? Crap, dinner! These pork chops are perfect for one of those nights.  They come together quickly, are nice and tender and full of flavor.


     They are so easy I will walk you through it step by step.  Start by gathering the ingredients.  There are only five and you are likely to have them on hand. Plus a little salt and pepper, but they hardly count as they are within arm's reach of the stove already.  Get some sides going while you're at it, because this isn't going to take long. Warm up a little olive oil in a pan and sprinkle your chops with salt and pepper.  While the first side of the pork chops are browning, quickly mix together the honey, mustard and garlic.  Flip the chops and spoon the yummy sauce over top.  Cover and reduce the heat until they are cooked through.  Check your sides, serve up dinner!  It doesn't take a whole lot longer to execute than it did to read it.  What are you waiting for?



    As spring always seems to be a busy time for us, I like having a few easy recipes like this ready and waiting.  Now I would love to know what your favorite quick meals are for those busy nights.

    1. That looks really easy, quick and tasty. I never seem to have meat thawed when I need something in a hurry so I make fried potatoes, eggs and a fruit plate on those nights.

      1. Sometimes I love doing something a bit more complicated and with a bunch of steps... but it's totally not practical most of the time. So it's handy to have some things that can be made in a few minutes with a few ingredients. Have a great weekend!
