Crispy Honey-Mustard Pork Chops
  • Pork Chops:
  • 4  pork chops, 1/2-inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4  cup  honey
  • 1/4  cup  stone-ground mustard
  • 2  tablespoons  panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
  • 2  teaspoons  chopped fresh marjoram
  • 1/8  teaspoon  onion powder
  • 1/4  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.

From the Test KitchenSauteed 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

Yield: 2 cups
  • 1  pound  beets (red and/or yellow and orange), peeled and cut in 3/4-inch dice and/or baby beets, halved
  • 3/4  cup  water
  • 1/4  cup  cider vinegar
  • 3  tablespoons  honey
  • 1/2  cup  raisins
  • 1  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1/2  teaspoon  dry mustard
  • 1/2  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.
