"An easy pan saute for a simple cut pork chop. Now, I used boneless chops, but you can really use any cut you want for this recipe. The mustard offers a nice tang and the saltines add a nice crisp coating. Note: Make sure to add the crackers to a food processor so they can be fine ground; and use a good dijon mustard. Sauteed cabbage, roasted potatoes, and apple sauce would be great side dishes with this."

Step 1

Coating ... Add the saltines to a small food processor and pulse until well ground. You really want a fine ground mix for this recipe. Transfer to a pie plate or shallow dish. Add the thyme, sage, parsley, salt and pepper, and mix well.

Step 2

Pork Chops ... Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator to take the chill off. Mix the honey and mustard together and brush on both sides of the pork chops and add to the coating mixture. Press the mixture into both sides of the chops.

Step 3

Saute ... To a large saute pan (preferred non-stick), add the 2 tablespoons of the oil and bring to medium high heat. Add the pork chops and cook on each side until golden brown. Flip and cook the other side until golden brown. Cooking times will depend on the thickness of your chop. Four (4) chops will take about 5 minutes for the first side and 3-4 on the second side for a 1/2" chop. Again, it can vary, just keep an eye on them. Use a thermometer if you are not sure.

Step 4

Serve ... Let the chops rest a few minutes before serving. Serve with apple sauce, roasted potatoes and sauteed cabbage for a nice evening dinner. And if you are pressed for time, make the coating and the mustard mix ahead - then just coat and saute. ENJOY!

Lovely flavourful coating for pork chops, we love it ! I just happened to have a bottle of local honey mustard , so i used that instead of mixing the two, turned out delicious, possibly a wee bit sweeter but wonderful. The thyme and sage were perfect with it and the saltine crackers added a subtle saltiness. My pork chops were so thick they took a bit longer to cook, I will be making these again, thanks for posting.
