Juicy Pork Chops

Wow, it had been far to long since we last ate Pork Chops!!
They were delicious & easy...
Hope you attempt this recipe as well. The beef boullion made me a little "iffy".. but I'm
glad I gave this recipe a shot! 

4 Bone-In Pork Chops
1/4 chopped onion
2 Tbsp of Dijon Mustard
1 cube of Beef Bouillon
1 Cup of Water
1 Tbsp of Corn Starch

(Pork Rub)
Sprinkle Salt & Pepper on both sides
Sprinkle Chile Powder & a dusting of Cumin.
Rub all ingredients in!!

Pre-Heat large skillet (Medium-High) add about 1-2 Tbsp of oil &
Saute Pork Chops 3-4 mins per side until golden brown.

 Remove from skillet & place on a plate.

In the same skillet add onion & Dijon Mustard, saute about 2 mins. Scrap off drippings.
Add water, corn starch & beef bouillon. Stir until cube is completely dissolved.
(Taste & adjust seasonings.. I added more water to mellow out the salt content of the beef bouillon)
Place Pork Chops in broth & cover. Cook for 15-20 mins.
** I sprinkled in Lemon Thyme at this point.. Completely Optional.

For the Greens:
Clean & Stem Green Bean. Boil water in a pot, add green beans & cook for 4-5 mins.
Taste for your preferred tenderness.

Drain! Mince a small garlic, heat up a large skillet add 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil.
Add Green Beans, garlic, chopped fresh mint, the zest of half a lemon & season with Salt & Pepper.
Stir to combine all ingredients. About 2 mins, turn heat off.

Plate your meal... & place the light gravy in a bowl as well.


The Recipe for the Pork Chops rub is my own. However, the Recipe for the Chops is not. I found the recipe online somewhere... I made this meal last week & went back for the link but could not find it. :(
(Its one of those sites that people upload their own recipes to share).

Additional Questions... ask me!


  1. These were so easy to make and they were a hit! When the kids saw the ingredients, they made a face, but when i started cooking the sauce, the smell really convinced them to try it. They were convinced after their first bite and even were sucking on the bones. Thanks!

  2. That's great to hear!
    My non-meat eating girls actually enjoyed them also :-)
    Us mom's need quick weeknight meals!
