Mustard-Crusted Pork Chops

Mustard-Crusted Pork Chops


cup melted butter


cup chopped fresh parsley (or use 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes)


teaspoon garlic powder or 1 tablespoon finely minced fresh garlic


tablespoons favorite prepared mustard (I use honey mustard for this)


cups fresh breadcrumbs


center-cut pork chops (about 3/4-inch thick)

seasoning salt

pepper (can use regular table salt in place of seasoning salt)

  1. Set oven heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  3. In a medium bowl mix together melted butter, chopped parsley, garlic powder or fresh minced garlic and 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) prepared mustard; mix in fresh breadcrumbs.
  4. Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons mustard on both sides of pork chops (if desired you can slightly more than 2 tablespoons to spread on the chops) then season with salt and pepper.
  5. Arrange in roasting pan.
  6. Press about 1/4-cup of the breadcrumb mixture on top of each chop.
  7. Bake pork chops until cooked through (about 30-35 minutes).
  8. Preheat the broiler.
  9. Broil the pork chops (crust side-up) until golden brown, about 2 minutes (watch closely, they will burn easily!).
  10. Serve immediately.
