Honey Mustard Pork Chops

Another successful quick dinner last night that was enjoyed by all.

We really enjoyed the sweetness of the honey combined with the savoury of the mustard. There is something about honey mixed with mustard - they just go so well together. This really flavoursome marinade becomes a delicious light sauce to serve with the dish.

Now I just need to master my new camera and it's multitude of settings/buttons etc to get better photos...... lol!! I am working on it.

Honey Mustard Pork Chops

Serves: 4
ProPoints per serve: 6

500 grams pork chops
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon crushed ginger
2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves
freshly ground black pepper

Place pork in a snap lock bag or casserole dish.

Mix together the oil, mustard, honey, soy, garlic, ginger and thyme leaves. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour mixture of pork chops and allow to marinate for 30 minutes, or longer if time permits.

Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and heat over a high heat. Remove pork from marinade while reserving marinade. Cook pork chops for 2 - 3 minutes on each side, or to your liking, remove from heat and set aside.

Pour the remaining marinade into the frying pan. Over a medium heat bring to the boil while stirring, cook until slightly thickened. Return chops to the pan along with any juices to reheat for 2 minutes, turning to coat with sauce.
