Mustard Marinated Pork Chops

Do you ever get sick of making the same thing, the same way, all the time?  While I try to change it up as much as I can there are some things that you tend to make over and over just because you know it’s good.  For me, it’s pork chops, so yesterday I tried to change it up a bit.  Not a good day to try something new in the kitchen for me lol, my head was foggy and I kept doing everything wrong.  I started to make a cup of coffee and for whatever reason, instead of putting  a scoop of coffee in the mug I grabbed the peanut butter and grabbed a spoonful of that. No clue why, it just happened, along with a bunch of other random things. That is why I was a little leery about trying something different.  But I did, and thankfully it was not only edible, but good!

This recipe is very simple, made with ingredients you probably have on hand and it can be made in 5 minutes, other than the marinating time! These pork chops could also be cooked on the grill.

Here are the ingredients I used.

In a large measuring cup, I mixed together the mustard (I used spicy), soya sauce, brown sugar and garlic powder until combined. It will be a bit thick but that’s just fine.

I sliced the onion and I trimmed the excess fat and put a few fork holes in the pork chops to help it absorb more of the marinade and put them both in a large freezer bag.

I poured the marinade in and squished the bag around to make sure everything was fully coated and then put it in the fridge to marinate for about 6 hours. (I placed it in an aluminum pan just in case one of the pork chop bones pushed through and the bag leaked)

When it was done marinating, I preheated the oven to 375 degrees and brushed the pan with the olive oil before adding the pork chops and onions to the pan.

I cooked them at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes and then switched the oven to low broil and let it cook for an additional 5 minutes to nicely brown the pork chops.

And then I served them with some rice and veggies!
