Breaded Dijon Pork Chops

I’m always looking for recipes to use good Iowa pork, and this one is a winner.  Our chops were tangy and juicy, not dry!  I used good Dijon mustard, and was glad to use up some slightly stale saltines.  Don’t overcook your chops, the times are just right.

  1. Oh thanks so much for this recipe. I am always looking for a good coated pork chop recipe as we eat pork chops probably once a week.

  2. Looks good! & what is the side that's picture. Am I seeing green beans, peas, maybe red pepper & maybe cannellini? Are there spices involved? That looks good too!

    1. Roasted green beans with cherry tomatoes and pine nuts...with olive oil and a little parmesan on top.

  3. I wasn't even close, Sue! (other than the green beans!)
