Pork Chops with Dijon Mustard and Herbs #Recipe @PegCochran

This recipe is from  It's super simple, easy and very delicious!  I have made it twice now since I discovered the recipe.


Pork chops (I had 3 fairly thin chops)
1 tsp. butter (I subbed olive oil)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste (freshly ground)
3 TBS chopped onion
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 TBS Dijon mustard
2 TBS chopped fresh herbs (I used parsley)


Dry chops on paper towels and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Heat butter or oil in pan over medium heat.  Add chops and cook/brown on one side.  Flip and cook/brown on the other side.  Length of time will depend on thickness of chops. Mine took only a few minutes a side.

  Remove chops and keep warm.

Add onion to pan and saute until wilted and beginning to turn golden.  Add in chicken broth and cook down to 1/2 a cup.  The sauce will thicken slightly.

Add mustard and herbs.  Stir.

Pour sauce over chops and enjoy!

The dead of winter takes on a whole new meaning in the new Cranberry Cove Mystery from USA Today bestselling author Peg Cochran!

On a night of heavy snow and bitter cold, newlyweds Monica and Greg are comfortably nestled before a warm fire when they’re roused by a late-night knock at the door. Surprised to find a troubled and confused woman on the doorstep, Monica is even more shocked when the woman vacantly utters that someone is trying to kill her. Sensing distress but not danger, Monica decides to help this mysterious woman, but her clouded recollections yield little—until she dredges up memories of her sister and a nearby home, where they find the woman’s sister, dead.

Unable to deny her own curiosity or the woman’s request for help, Monica begins digging into the suspicious death, only to discover a murky family history of valuable land, a bullying brother, an unscrupulous real estate developer, and endless rumors of good deeds met with bad blood. And when the trail of the killer begins to turn cold, Monica realizes that while the family wants to bury their sister, someone is out to bury the clues—and if Monica’s not careful, to bury her as well . . . 

Includes tasty recipes!

  The plot thickens for American gothic writer Penelope Parish when a murder near her quaint British bookshop reveals a novel's worth of killer characters.

Penelope Parish has hit a streak of bad luck, including a severe case of writer's block that is threatening her sophomore book. Hoping a writer in residence position at The Open Book bookstore in Upper Chumley-on-Stoke, England, will shake the cobwebs loose, Pen, as she's affectionately known, packs her typewriter and heads across the pond.

Unfortunately, life in Chumley is far from quiet and when the chairwoman of the local Worthington Fest is found dead, fingers are pointed at Charlotte Davenport, an American romance novelist and the future Duchess of Worthington. Charlotte turns to the one person who might be her ally for help: fellow American Pen. Teaming up with bookstore owner Mabel Morris and her new friend Figgy, Pen sets out to learn the truth and find the tricks that will help her finish her novel.



  1. With today's leaner pork it's important to not overcook it. Otherwise you get a very chewy piece of meat.
    This sounds tasty.

  2. Those look great! And not too dry!
