Dijon Fried Pork Chops

Once upon a time Dijon Mustard was all the rage. Commercials, print ads, bill boards the works. But it seems it's day has come and gone. It's a shame too. It's one of those simple things that can inject a lot of flavor while adding next to no carbs.

I really like the combined flavors of Dijon and pork chops. Since I had pork chops in the fridge that needed to be cooked I was already thinking Dijon pork. I was thinking of a simple marinade of Dijon, red wine and a few spices, then grilling them. However mom has a hard time chewing grilled pork sometimes. She asked me to fry them, which is wonderful but I already had my heart ... and taste buds set for Dijon pork.



This is exactly how new recipes come in to being...giggle trying to meet every one's needs and wants. This is the what I came up with to fill mom's need for fried, tender pork chops and my need for moist flavorful Dijon pork.



Dijon Fried Pork Chops



Ingredients:





Method:

  1. Mix instant mashers, parm/bread crumb mix and crushed pork skins in a large zip bag

  2. Wash pork chops well.

  3. Smear each pork chop with Dijon; front and back

  4. One at a time shake each chop in the breading mix.

  5. Fry in your favorite oil, I used coconut but peanut would also work well.

  6. Drain and enjoy!



Sorry for the bad photo. My phone is the only camera I have and it's not taken very good pics these days.

Does that happen to go well with Applesauce? That's the best right?

YOu know Wayne I've never had apple sauce with porkchops. But if you like apple sauce with your pork chops I don't see why it wouldn't.
