Parmesan Dijon Pork


This recipe is so easy and full of flavor! Sure to be a hit with everyone in your family! I serve it with roasted cauliflower (see roasted cauliflower recipe) and a salad.

What you need;

  • 4 pork chops – I’ve used bone-in and boneless chops and a pork tenderloin cut into pieces. I buy whatever is on sale, all varieties are equally delicious.
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp steak seasoning (this has salt, pepper, garlic, paprika and some brands have even more ingredients, this is easier than measuring out each ingredient)
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese

How to make;

Whisk  together oil and mustard in a dish with low sides so you can dip the pork to coat. Stir in pepper flakes and steak seasoning until incorporated. Put parmesan cheese in a separate dish with low sides. Dip each pork chop in the mustard mixture on both sides and then into the parmesan cheese on both sides. I like to bake my pork chops on a cooling rack stacked on top of a baking sheet so the heat is evenly distributed and it browns on all sides. This keeps you from have a crisp pork chop on top and soggy on the bottom. Repeat with remaining pork chops and bake at 425 for 15 minutes (the time will depend on the thickness of your pork chops I had just under one inch thick chops here and 12 minutes was long enough). Pictured below is a pork chop in each step of the coating process.

Like I said earlier, I like to serve this with roasted cauliflower which is baked at the same temperature but for double the amount of time, so it’s perfect to prepare your cauliflower first and get it in the oven and then you have 15 minutes to prepare your pork before it goes in the oven. Then they both come out at the same time. See Roasted Cauliflower Recipe in a separate post.
