Mustard breaded porkchops

Alex and I haven't had pork chops in a while, so I asked him to bring some home for me to cook for dinner. The good news about this broken leg is that I'm not trapped in bed, and my right leg is really strong from last time I broke my leg, so I can hop around the kitchen and cook and bake. Otherwise this would be way more terrible than it is. Anyway, I wanted something mustardy and breaded, so I made mustard smeared, breaded, pan fried porkchops. Delicious!
Mustard Breaded Porkchops

4 thin-cut boneless porkchops, or 2 thick ones cut in half horizontally
salt and pepper
2-3 T spicy brown mustard
3/4 c gluten-free breadcrumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 T cream, half and half, or milk
1 t chili sauce

Sprinkle each porkchop with salt and pepper, then spread mustard evenly over the tops. Mix together the egg, cream, and chili sauce in a shallow bowl. Put the breadcrumbs in another. Dip the porkchops first in the egg mix, then give a little shake, then coat with breadcrumbs. Repeat with all chops, then pan fry in a little bit of oil on each side until golden brown. Next time I might make them as sandwiches, with more mustard, some Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion...

    what are you using for breadcrumbs?

  2. I buy that crappy gf bread from the grocery store, thaw it out and then grind it up in the food processor and keep it in bags in the freezer.

  3. yum, that looks great - and so sorry you broke your leg!! that bites... will you be all healed for your wedding?

  4. Allie - It's a huge bummer, but THANKFULLY I will be all healed by my wedding, if I had to break my leg again, I at least did it in the way that takes the least amount of time to heal!

  5. I will be making this for dinner this week!

  6. Such a great sounding recipe and beautiful finished product. But, gosh, what is really beautiful are those pork chops! You have some great butcher. Here in the Midwest (where you'd think pork would be "king") most pork simply pales (literally) by comparison to those chops. Hope your leg gets better soon!
