important pork chop tip

Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before you start cooking. The meat will heat more evenly in the pan when it is at room temperature. This simple tip will make a big difference in your pork chops.

how do I know when my pork chops are done

Either way we suggest using a meat thermometer to enjoy this recipe safely. Stick the thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, hitting no bone. Pork cooking temperatures are medium-well (155-160 degrees Fahrenheit) and well-done (160 degrees).

should I pat dry pork chops

Yes, when any moisture on the pork chops is exposed to the heat, it steams the meat, and instead of a deep, golden-brown crust, you end up with a pale grey exterior. This is a hot tip we must have missed in middle school home economics, but we are glad we eventually came across it. Be sure to pat your pork chops as dry as you can with paper towels right before searing them in the hot skillet.

Servings: 4 servings
Author: Eating Gluten and Dairy Free

Ingredients

  • 1 lb mini potatoes rinsed and halved
  • 2 tbsp dairy free butter divided
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil divided
  • 4 1-inch pork chops bone-in or boneless, pat dry, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ c honey
  • c Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • optional– fresh chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Add potatoes to boiling water in a stock pan and cook for 8 minutes. Drain water.
  • While the potatoes cook, heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan. Once the butter is melted, add in the seasoned pork chops. Cook 4-5 minutes per side until cooked through; remove to a plate. Use a meat thermometer as pork should be cooked to 155-160°F for medium well.
  • Do not clean out the skillet. Instead over medium heat, add in the additional butter and oil. Transfer the potatoes and cook until they have a nice crust on them.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add in the glaze ingredients (lemon, honey, mustard, and smoked paprika).
  • Pour glaze into the saucepan, add the pork chops back to the saucepan and allow to set for 2-3 minutes until sauce thickens. Drizzle sauce over pork chops and potatoes. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve.
  • Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.
