I love how crunchy almonds and sweet mustard sauce jazz up this tender pork dish. Usually, I double the recipe. One chop is never enough for my family.
What You Need:
(Makes: 4 servings)
1/2 cup of smoked almonds
1/2 cup of dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup of all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
4 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup of regular or reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup of honey
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
What to Do:
STEP 1) In a food processor, process the almonds until finely chopped. Transfer to a shallow bowl; add bread crumbs; set aside.
STEP 2) In another bowl, beat the eggs. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add pork chops, one at a time, and shake to coat. Dip in eggs, then coat with almond mixture.
STEP 3) In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chops in oil and butter for 5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey and mustard. Serve with pork chops.
STEP 4) Enjoy!I love how crunchy almonds and sweet mustard sauce jazz up this tender pork dish. Usually, I double the recipe. One chop is never enough for my family.
