Today I want to share a delicious recipe for tender, juicy pork chop cutlets coated in creamy honey mustard sauce! The recipe for Creamy Honey Dijon Pork Chops is easy! They can be cooked and on the table in about 20 minutes!

Using what are commonly called “pork cutlets” (boneless pork chops about ½” thick), allows for less cooking time, which works for me! The pork chops are quickly seared in olive oil and butter, then topped with a simple 3-ingredient sauce to finish cooking. It really couldn’t be any easier to prepare, and the pork chops are juicy, tender, and taste GREAT! Let me show you how to make them in practically no time at all!

Preparing The Pork Chops For Pan-Searing

The pork chops should be about ½” thick. They are sometimes called “pork cutlets” at the store, and they are thinner than other types of pork chops. We are using these pork chops to ensure less cooking time. Okay? Remember- if you are using thicker chops, your cooking time will need to be increased! My husband and I eat only ONE pork chop, but this recipe can be easily doubled for more people or big appetites!

Place the boneless pork chops on a sheet of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet and pound down the meat on both sides with the sharp ends to help tenderize the pork chops. Once done, trim off any extra fat you find clinging onto the edges of the chops.

Measure flour, salt and pepper onto a large plate, and give it a stir to combine. Dredge the pork chops through the flour mixture (one at a time) to ensure all sides of the pork chops are covered with the flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour and place pork chop aside while you repeat the process with the other pork chop (or chops). Now it’s time to pan-sear them!

Ready To Pan-Sear

Heat extra virgin olive oil and butter in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Once butter has melted and the skillet is really hot (but not smoking), carefully add the pork chops. They should sizzle when added to the hot oil/butter in the skillet. Don’t move the chops around in the skillet… just let them sear in the pan. This helps to give the meat a nice golden brown “crust”.

Cook the chops for 4 minutes, then carefully flip them over to the other side and cook for 4 more minutes. They pork cutlets should have a nice golden brown color when done. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and cover, to keep them warm.

Make The Creamy Honey Dijon Sauce

Without cleaning the pan, use the same skillet to make the quick and easy creamy honey Dijon sauce. Turn the heat to MEDIUM and add the whipping cream, Dijon mustard and honey to the skillet. Whisk well, to combine ingredients. Let the sauce simmer, stirring often, for one minute.

Back Into The Sauce Go The Pork Chops

Carefully place the pork chops back into the skillet with the sauce. Spoon sauce over the top of the chops, to cover. Place a lid on the skillet PARTWAY (don’t fully cover). Let the meat simmer on medium heat for 5-6 more minutes to cook the creamy honey Dijon pork chops fully through.

During the cooking time, take the lid off and add more sauce to the top of the chops, then partly cover the skillet and finish cooking. When done, remove the skillet from the heat. The pork chops should have an internal temperature of 145°F. Because pork “cutlets” are thinner than other pork chops, they require less cooking time to reach temperature, which is a win-win in my book!

Serve And Enjoy The Creamy Honey Dijon Pork Chops

To serve the creamy honey Dijon pork chops, spoon some of the sauce over each piece. Garnish each portion with fresh thyme leaves or flat leaf Italian parsley. The green color of the parsley give the pork chops a pop of color, which we like!

Place a pork chop on each plate, adding additional sauce, if desired. Serve while hot, and enjoy! The pork chops should be tender, juicy, and have wonderful flavor, thanks to the tasty sauce it cooked in! I really hope you like them, because we sure do! We enjoyed them served with fresh asparagus and a stuffed sweet potato half on the side. YUM!
