Three Ingredient Thursday- Cranberry Mustard Pork Chops
This little experiment worked out really well. This came from the mind of a bored cook with a nearly empty cabinet right before a food shopping spree, while she was trying to use up some ingredients she had on hand.
I'm bored easily and because my sons are frequent guests at my dinner table, my cabinets get emptied on a regular basis. SO this one was easy to come up with.
Who says cranberry sauce must be a seasonal ingredient? It was wonderful!
You will need :
*Pork Chops ( I like a thicker cut, but your preference will work)
*whole berry cranberry sauce (from the can)
(We won't count S&P and oil for cooking)
Season chops with S & P and brown slightly in skillet in 1-2 T. oil. Brush on mustard and cook on med.heat on stovetop covered for 5 minutes. Turn over and brush other side with mustard and cook for 5 more minutes on Med. High heat while covered. Turn heat to med., till meat is thoroughly cooked and spoon cranberry sauce over top. Heat through.
It's that simple.
Something a bit different for when you're bored and your cabinets are bare.
