- 1/3 cup mayonnaise ($0.53)
- 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard ($0.18)
- 2 Tbsp honey ($0.24)
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder ($0.02)
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika ($0.03)
- 1/4 tsp salt ($0.02)
- 1/4 tsp Freshly cracked pepper ($0.02)
- 1 Tbsp cooking oil ($0.02)
- 4 bone-in pork chops, one-inch thick (about 2.5 lbs.)($5.02)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Prepare the honey mustard sauce by stirring together the mayonnaise, Dijon, honey, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and freshly cracked black pepper.
Use a paper towel to dry off the surface of the pork chops, then season each side with a pinch of salt and freshly cracked pepper. Heat one tablespoon of cooking oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When the skillet is very hot add two pork chops at a time and cook until golden brown on each side (3 minutes each side). Place the browned pork chops in a casserole dish (it’s okay if they overlap slihtly).
Smear the honey mustard sauce over both sides of the pork chops in the casserole dish. Bake for about 30 minutes for 1-inch thick chops, about 20 minutes for ¾-inch thick chops, or until the internal temperature reaches 145ºF. To achieve more browning, switch the oven to broil and broil the chops for 3-5 minutes or until the surface is golden brown and bubbly. Serve hot.
