Yummy Pork Chops
The name of these chops is not my fault. I asked Big D what he would call them and he came up with Yummy Pork Chops. Yes, he is a writer, I swear. Go figure. Anyway, they were easy, very yummy and I will be making them again. I came up with this recipe as a result of thinking about some spicy chipotle chops I made a while back, and spontaneous grocery shopping.
I go to the store once a week, with the hope that additional trips will be unnecessary. I do pretty good on that score most weeks. I also go with a pretty flexible list. I know there will be replacement of standard condiments we have run out of, as well staples like fruits, vegetables, protein and cheese. Beyond that I rely on prices for the most part. Is chicken or pork on sale? Is the deli sliced ham or beef cheaper this week? Is the cabbage or cauliflower cheaper? You get the idea. Sometimes I do have specific dishes in mind, but usually it is a matter of having a stocked fridge and freezer. This week the pork chops won the price battle, so here is the lovely result of living not so large at the store!
Yummy Pork Chops
4 – 6 thin pork chops
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp horseradish mustard (or 1 Tbsp yellow mustard and 1 Tbsp prepared horseradish)
1 tsp sea salt
2 Tbsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp dehydrated onion
3 Tbsp lemon juice
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In medium bowl combine the mayonnaise, mustard, garlic, salt, onion and lemon juice. Whisk together until blended.
Generously season chops with salt and pepper. Arrange chops on shallow baking sheet. Spread mayonnaise mixture over the top of all the chops. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 30 minutes, until top of chops has browned. Serve immediately.
