Skillet Pork Chops with Peas, Carrots & Pearl Onions


This superfast one-dish dinner is full of classic flavor and is such a crowd pleaser that you'll want to work it into your regular weeknight dinner rotation. We call for bone-in pork chops to maximize flavor, but boneless pork chops are a fine substitution. To round out this meal a little more, serve with rice or mashed potatoes.

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 4 (6 ounce) bone-in, center-cut pork chops

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • 1 ½ cups diagonally sliced carrots (about 2 medium carrots)

  • 1 cup frozen pearl onions, thawed (about 6 ounces)

  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup unsalted chicken stock

  • ½ cup frozen green peas, thawed

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Sprinkle pork chops with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Add pork to skillet; and cook until well browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove pork from skillet and set aside.

  2. Add carrots and onions to skillet; cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add flour to skillet; cook, stirring often, 30 seconds. Add stock, peas and mustard to skillet; bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes.

  3. Return pork to skillet, nestling pork in the liquid. Sprinkle with pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and cook until sauce is slightly thickened, pork is warmed through and carrots are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and sprinkle with butter and parsley.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
