This recipe makes four large bone-in pork chops giving each person a very generous portion. If you are cooking for a smaller crowd, simply cut this recipe in half. If cooking for a large crowd, you can easily double this recipe.
We served our pork chops with asparagus and mashed potatoes. You can pair yours with oven roasted potatoes, macaroni and cheese, a fresh garden salad and so much more. I will link a few of my favorite side dishes for you below.
Ingredients you need for this recipe:
Bone-In Pork Chops – You’ll need four bone-in pork chops that are about one to one and a half inches thick.
Paprika – You can use regular or smoked paprika in this recipe. They both work great!
Brown Sugar – Light or dark brown sugar both work.
Salt – I almost always use sea salt in all of my recipes but you can use regular iodized/kosher salt.
Black Pepper – Ground or freshly cracked black pepper.
Butter – Salted or unsalted.
Oil – Olive, canola or avocado oil all work great in this recipe.
Garlic – Fresh minced garlic.
Mustard – I used regular yellow mustard but dijon or stoneground mustard are great too.
Parsley – I try to always use fresh if I have it on hand but you can use dried as well.
Tools to have on hand:
- Large Cast Iron Skillet – To sear the pork chops in prior to finishing in the oven.
- Tongs – To turn your chops over after searing.
- Measuring Spoons – For properly measuring all of your ingredients.
- Small Bowl – For mixing the seasonings.
How to make baked Mustard Brown Sugar Pork Chops:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Heat your cast iron skillet over high heat. Add butter and olive oil to the skillet.
In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, brown sugar, parsley, paprika, salt, pepper and minced garlic. Rub the pork chops all over with the mixture.
Once the skillet is very hot, add pork chops and cook for 2 minutes. Flip pork chops over and transfer to the oven to 6-8 minutes or until pork chops are at 145 degrees.
When done, transfer pork chops to a plate and cover with foil. Let rest for 4-5 minutes before serving.
Pour remaining sauce from your skillet over pork chops and serve with your favorite side dishes. Enjoy!
