Crispy Honey-Mustard Pork Chops
Ingredients Pork Chops:
pork chops, 1/2-inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds)
teaspoon salt
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
cup honey
cup stone-ground mustard
tablespoons panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
teaspoons chopped fresh marjoram
teaspoon onion powder
cup extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Trim fat from chops; season with salt and pepper, then set aside. In a shallow dish combine honey and mustard. In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, 1 tsp. of the marjoram, and the onion powder; set aside.
  2. Dip chops in honey mixture to coat, letting excess drip off. Place chops on a parchment-lined plate. Place in refrigerator to marinate for 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in olive oil. (If the skillet isnt large enough to hold four pork chops without crowding, cook in two batches). Cook chops in hot oil for 3 minutes, until undersides are crisp and browned. Turn chops; cook 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer to an oven-safe platter. Sprinkle chops with bread crumb mixture. Bake chops for 8 to 9 minutes, until crumbs begin to brown. Sprinkle with remaining marjoram. Serve chops with Sweet Beet Chutney.

Sauteed Beet Greens:

If your beets have nice greens, save them to serve with the chops. Wash the reserved greens well. Coarsely chop the greens; set aside. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add greens; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


If honey is thick, heat in microwave for 5 to 10 seconds.

Sweet Beet Chutney
pound beets (red and/or yellow and orange), peeled and cut in 3/4-inch dice and/or baby beets, halved
cup water
cup cider vinegar
tablespoons honey
cup raisins
teaspoon ground coriander
teaspoon dry mustard
teaspoon ground cardamom
  1. In a medium saucepan combine the beets and 3/4 cup of water. Bring to boiling, covered. Reduce heat. Boil gently, covered, for 8 minutes.
  2. Uncover. Stir in the cider, honey, raisins, coriander, dry mustard, cardamom, and salt to taste. Return to gentle boiling. Cook, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes, until liquid is reduced and syrupy.
