Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Whisk vinegar, mustard, oil, maple syrup, thyme and pepper in a small bowl; pour over the chops. Seal the bag; turn to coat the chops. Refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours, turning the bag occasionally.

  • Drain the chops, discarding the marinade. Coat a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Working in batches, add the chops to the hot pan; cook, turning once, until the pork is done (145 degrees F), 6 to 8 minutes. Serve 4 chops with roasted sweet potatoes and cauliflower. Reserve the remaining chop for another meal (see Note).
