Maple & Mustard Glazed Pork Chops

Enjoy your dinner

This was a great meal that took about 30 minutes to prepare.  Start with the asparagus, and potatoes’, then cook the chops so all items are done at the same time.

2 lbs pork loin chops (4)

4tbs maple syrup

4tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp vegetable oil

¼ cup water

Salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat the oven to 350 (the Asparagus recipe is below and these can be put in at any time)

In a large pan heat the oil over med high heat. Salt and pepper the pork on each side and sear them for about 2 3 minutes per side. Set them aside in an oven safe dish; once all the chops have been seared place them in the pre-heated oven to continue cooking.

Sear the Pork Chops on both sides

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the syrup, mustard and water. Remove add to the pan the chops were cooked in and cook on med high heat until reduced.  Remove the chops from the oven coat in the glaze and serve with Roasted asparagus and sweet mashed potatoes.

Roasted Asparagus

1 lb fresh asparagus

2 tsp olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Cut off the tougher part at the bottom of the asparagus, you can tell how much to cut off by taking the asparagus and holding t in both hand bend it until the end breaks off.  The ends are way too tough to eat.

Place the asparagus on a baking sheet in one layer, drizzle with oil and salt and pepper and place in the preheated oven. Cook for about 15 20 minutes.

Mashed Sweet potatoes

Two yams and two russet potatoes cut into small pieces.

2 tsp brown sugar

½ stick of butter

3 tsp garlic minced

Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes’ and yams until tender, drain and mash with the other ingrediants. NOW THAT WAS EASY!
