My exams start on Tuesday and I need comfort food. I need warm, friendly, delicious and uncomplicated meals because I am in a dark, scary place my friends. But not to worry. I eagerly await the freedom Friday, Nov. 5th and the joy of being done with all this hard work. And in the meantime, I’ve had mustard pork chops. Remember the awesomely comforting and filling chops I ate at Max and Julie’s during Houston Restaurant week? I got a craving for them last week but wanted to make something less expensive at home.
Epicurious had my solution: Pork Chops with Mustard Sauce. I follow the recipe pretty closely except I use thinner chops, so they take less time to cook and I use way more cream and probably more broth than is entirely necessary. The sauce makes this dish sooooo goooood. Honestly, I am not a mustard person, but the flavor of the sauce is not sharp and the cream makes it very rich. And after the chops sit in the mustard in the fridge overnight, it might be even better. Eat this with green veggies– you’ll want to dip them in the leftover sauce. Can’t wait to start blogging for ya’ll again next week!
