  • 4 boneless pork loin center chops (about 1" thick)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Flour for dredging
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth or stock
  • 1 Granny Smith apple chopped small
  • 1 dash Italian seasoning


  1. Sprinkle the pork chops with salt & pepper and garlic powder, and then dredge them in flour.

  2. Add 1 tbsp of the butter + the olive oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan's hot, add the pork. Cook it for 3-4 minutes/side or until it has a nice golden crust.

  3. Meanwhile, chop the apple.

  4. Take the pork chops out and set aside.

  5. Add the Dijon mustard, chicken broth, and the rest of the butter. Give it a good stir until the mustard dissolves.

  6. Add the apples and Italian seasoning and let the sauce cook for a few minutes.

  7. Add the pork back into the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.

  8. Take the lid off the pan, and if the sauce is reduced to your liking and the apples and pork are done, serve. If not, continue cooking for a little longer (leave the lid off to reduce sauce).

Recipe Notes

  • I used boneless pork chops, but you could definitely use bone-in ones. If your pork chops are slightly thicker or slightly less thick than the ones I bought (mine were about 1" thick), adjust cooking time accordingly. 
  • I used my trusty 10-1/4" Lodge cast iron skillet to make this recipe.
