Simple Braised Pork Chops

 These simple braised pork chops are  flavored with a combination of Dijon mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. 

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 25 minutes

Yield: Makes 4 Servings


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 4 bone-in center cut pork chops
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce



In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, cook the onions in the vegetable oil, stirring, until softened and lightly browned around the edges. Move the onions aside and add the pork chops to the skillet. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cook the chops for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned. Add the garlic and sauté for about 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until the garlic is slightly tender and aromatic. Be careful not to burn the garlic.

In a cup or bowl, combine the chicken broth, mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour the mixture over the chops. Cover the pan tightly and cook over low heat for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the pork chops are tender.

If you prefer to use the oven, cover the skillet (ovenproof) or transfer to a baking pan and cover tightly with foil. Braise the pork chops at 325° F for about 45 to 55 minutes, until tender.
