Honey Mustard Pork Chops are an easy 30 minute meal the whole family is going to love. Thick cut pork chops with a delicious honey mustard sauce.
Pork chops are one thing I don’t make enough of. They have a reputation of being a little bland and not as versatile as something like chicken breasts.
But everyone in my house always loves them when I do make them. Especially when they’ve got a delicious sauce drizzled over top!
If you find yourself walking right past the pork chop section of your grocery store every week because you don’t know what to do with them, give these Honey Mustard Pork Chops a try!
Why You’re Going To Love This Recipe
- If your kids are like mine, they are obsessed with honey mustard. They honey mustard is such a fun way to jazz up pork chops which can be kind of bland and boring.
- These honey mustard pork chops are ready in about 30 minutes, depending on how thick your chops are!
- This recipe is super budget friendly! Pork chops are one of the cheaper options at my grocery store and I already had the rest of the ingredients on hand.
Ingredients for Honey Mustard Pork Chops
- Thick cut boneless pork chops – these are my preferred chops for this recipe but you can use thin cut (they may not need to go in the oven) or bone-in pork chops (which may require longer in the oven).
- Garlic and herb seasoning – I used Mrs Dash brand of seasoning for this recipe but there are many different kinds out there. If you don’t want to buy another bottle of seasoning, make your own mixture of dried onion, dried garlic, and whatever dried herbs you already have.
- Salt – the garlic and herb seasoning blend I used has no added salt so I included salt in the recipe list. If the seasoning you use has salt, go ahead and leave this out.
- Oil – I recommend avocado oil for this recipe because it has a high smoke point but you can use vegetable oil or canola oil. Just don’t use a low smoke point oil like olive oil or butter.
- Stone ground mustard – you want a grainy mustard for this recipe. It will be the main part of the sauce that is going on the pork chops.
- Honey – you can’t have honey mustard pork chops without honey! This is going in the sauce.
How To Make Honey Mustard Pork Chops
- Prepare pork. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and then season with 1 ½ teaspoons of the garlic and herb seasoning and the salt.
- Brown pork chops. Sear the pork chops in hot oil on each side until just golden brown.
- Make honey mustard. Mix together the stone ground mustard, honey, and the remaining garlic and herb seasoning in a medium mixing bowl.
- Remove pork. Remove the seared pork from the skillet and set aside.
- Add sauce. Put the honey mustard mixture into the hot skillet and stir until everything comes off the bottom of the skillet.
- Add pork back. Place the pork chops back into the skillet and spoon sauce over the top of each one.
- Finish cooking. Bake at 350F for 10-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pork chops, or until the pork reaches 145F internally.
- Serve. Top with chopped parsley and serve.
How Long Are They Good For?
These pork chops are good for up to 3 days. Make sure to store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
When you are ready to reheat them, you can pop them in the oven or the microwave. Just keep a close eye on them because pork does tend to dry out when it’s overcooked.
Can You Freeze Them?
You can freeze these pork chops for up to 3 months. I would wrap each pork chop in aluminum foil and then place them in a freezer ziploc bag.
Let them defrost overnight in the refrigerator before you plan to serve them.
What To Serve with Pork Chops
I like to serve Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes with these pork chops so the potatoes can soak up all that delicious sauce.
A green vegetable like Roasted Broccolini or a simple side salad is also great alongside these pork chops.
