Two mustards—grainy and smooth—add layers of flavor to the creamy sauce that tops these pork chops.

  1. 1/4 cup chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  2. 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  3. 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  4. 2 teaspoons stone-ground mustard
  5. 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  6. 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  7. 4 boneless pork loin chops (about 5 ounces each)
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a blender, process the chicken stock, sour cream, Dijon and stone-ground mustards and the cornstarch until smooth. Transfer the sauce to a small saucepan and simmer over moderate heat until thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the parsley and keep warm.
  2. Heat a large skillet. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and cook over moderately high heat until well browned, about 5 minutes. Turn the pork chops and cook until browned and just cooked through, about 3 minutes longer. Transfer the chops to warm dinner plates, spoon the mustard sauce on top and serve at once.

Suggested Pairing

These mustardy, moist pork chops point to a big white—Chardonnay—or a light red, ideally a California Pinot Noir, which would underscore the tangy flavors here.
