Ha, I know this is a bit off subject, but I was intending on making Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrots as last night's side dish but didn't get to because I completely forgot to purchase one bunch of full size/large carrots and did not feel like making another a run to the store haha! However, thankfully there were some leftovers from my late Sunday afternoon snack (Brown Butter Garlic Honey Roasted Carrots) so then I  decided to reheat that in the microwave and used it as a replacement. And yes, of course, I still plan on making the Garlic Parmesan Roasted Carrot recipe sometime this week. 

 Finally onto today's original subject  

You only need one pan, five ingredients and approximately twenty minutes for these easy cider dijon pork chops. It's a simple weeknight dinner that your whole family will enjoy! 


CIDER DIJON PORK CHOPS 

INGREDIENTS

Four small boneless pork chops (about 1.3 lbs. total)
two tsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp olive oil
½ C apple cider
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
⅓  heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional Topping: fresh rosemary


 Directions

1. Season your pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat approximately two tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for one-two minutes. Swirl to coat the pan. Combine the garlic and cook, constantly stirring, for about one more minute. Place chops into the skillet and cook for five-ten minutes on each side, or until cooked through. 

2. Remove chops onto a plate and set aside. Pour cider into the pan and scrape up the bits as you stir. Let the cider simmer for about one minute, then combine the mustard and stir in the cream. Cook the sauce for about two-three minutes, then pour over the chops and serve. Garnish with fresh rosemary, if desired.
