Ingredients

4 (6-ounce) bone-in pork loin chops

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/4 cup Cranberry Mustard Sauce, recipe follows

Nonstick cooking spray

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Cranberry Mustard Sauce:

1 (12-ounce) package fresh or frozen cranberries, about 4 cups

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped pecans

4 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Arrange the pork chops in a single layer in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, add the mustard and cranberry sauce and stir to combine. Brush the mustard mixture evenly over both sides of the chops. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 12 hours, turning occasionally.
  2. Coat a large frying pan over medium heat with nonstick cooking spray. When the pan is hot add the chops. Partially cover and cook for 10 minutes. Uncover, turn the chops over and cook uncovered on the second side until the meat is cooked through but still juicy, 5 to 10 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and transfer to a serving platter.

Cranberry Mustard Sauce:

  1. Wash and pick over the cranberries. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the water and the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the cranberries and return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the cranberries burst, about 10 minutes. Stir in the pecans and the mustard and transfer to a small bowl. Let cool completely at room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until ready to use. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
  2. Yields: 2 1/4 cups
