Herbed Pork Chops on Mustard Sauce


  • 3/4 tsp dried thyme leaves 4 mL
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder 2 mL

  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 mL
  • 6 boneless pork chops (4 oz/125 g each), trimmed of fat
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil 15 mL
  • Mustard Sauce
  • 1/3 cup fat-free sour cream 75 mL
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard 60 mL
  • 3 Tbsp skim milk 45 mL
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil 15 mL
  • 3/4 tsp dried tarragon leaves 4 mL
  • 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper 5 mL


  • 1. In small bowl, combine thyme, garlic powder, pepper flakes and salt. Brush both sides of pork chops with canola oil. Sprinkle thyme mixture evenly over both sides and press down with fingertips to adhere.

  • 3. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, whisk together sour cream, mustard, milk, canola oil, and tarragon. Place over low heat until warmed, about 2 to 3 minutes. DO NOT bring to a boil. Spoon equal amounts of mustard sauce on each of 6 dinner plates. Place pork chops on top of sauce and sprinkle with black pepper.
