Pork Chops Go Gourmet
This recipe turns ordinary pork chops into something fabulous!
Adding herbs and a splash of brandy adds tons of flavor to these chops. And the best thing? This is easy to prepare and on the table very quickly!
Rosemary Adds Great Flavor
You’ll be surprised how the addition of a little rosemary makes these pork chops into a restaurant-quality meal.
I tend to use rosemary very lightly in recipes. I’d rather err on the side of mild flavor with this herb as for my taste, too much tastes medicinal. I do love the flavor, but just not a robust flavor. However, if you are a big fan, feel free to add more.
Fresh rosemary works best here, but if you don’t have it and only have the dehydrated stuff in the jar, use that but cut the amount in half. As a rule, substituting dry herbs for fresh, you use half the amount.
Yes, Whole Grain Mustard
This may be one thing you need to buy for this recipe, but trust me, you won’t be disappointed! Whole-grain dijon mustard is awesomely delicious and you’ll find many more uses for it. Mix a bit with mayo for a great sandwich spread and also use it in Slow Cooker Dijon Pork Chops & Potatoes and French Onion Soup Pork Chops.
