A-Z Letter K is for Killer Chops

K is for Killer Chops! Pork chops, like chicken, is always getting cooked in our house. This version is Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops which is my favorite way to eat them. Try this recipe out and see for yourself how yummy they are!

6 (1 inch thick) pork chops
salt and fresh pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons Dijon mustard (you need just enough to coat the chops)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan Romano cheese (spring for the good stuff it makes a huge difference)

Preheat your oven to 350. Season the pork chops on both  sides with salt and pepper.  Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Sear the chops on both sides for about 3 minutes each. (Make sure your oil is up to temperature first; take a little drop of water, if it sizzles when dropped into the skillet, your oil is ready)

Coat the tops of the pork chops with the Dijon Mustard and then the grated cheese. Place the pork chops on a sheet pan and finish cooking in the oven for about 10-12 minutes more. Be careful to keep an eye on them so as not to overcook.  Enjoy.

  1. Since I don't eat meat this one might be a pass for me. I might make it for someone else though, as it really seems easy and sounds yummy.

    1. Sorry- you won't like my M post either. It's meat sauce.

  2. We don't do pork chops in our house, but I bet the seasonings would be good on chicken.

    1. We have been having some internet issues in our house as well. Too many devices I think are in our house at once! Glad you are back. Hope you like the pork chops.

  4. I might have to try this. We don't eat enough pork chops in my family, and they love to cook with dijon mustard. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Center cut and lean are great with this. But you could use the kind with the bone in too, it's just a little more fattening.

    1. It's easy and quick and yet tastes and look good enough to serve for company. When I make these everyone thinks they took so much longer and are much more involved than what they truly are!
