Pork chops in the oven


Pork chops in the oven
To cook a pork chop well, without it drying out, one of the best methods is to cook it in two stages: start by pan-frying, then finish in the oven.

This recipe adds flavour with mustard and thyme, with the cooking juices deglazed and reduced before serving.
