Mustard Pork Chops ~ this is a quick and easy 30-minute meal that comes from Nigella Lawson, so you know it’s also comforting and luxurious!



Total time

30 minutes




  • 2 pork chops ((about 1 lb total) If they are thick, pound them down a bit between two layers of plastic)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • ½ cup hard cider (or wine, vermouth, or dry sherry)
  • 1 tbsp stone ground mustard
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • salt and fresh cracked black pepper


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium high heat until quite hot. Sprinkle the pork chops with a little salt and the grill them for about 5 minutes on each side, just until they are done through and no longer pink. Remove the chops to a warm plate.
  2. Add the hard cider to the pan and let the liquid bubble away for a couple of minutes. It will reduce a little and you can scrape up any brown bits from the pan to add flavor to your sauce.
  3. Stir in the mustard and the cream and heat through.
  4. Serve the pork chops drenched in the sauce, with boiled potatoes alongside.
