Honey Mustard Pork Chops

Once again I was fortunate enough to participate in the Tastemaker's program over at Foodbuzz. We received some products from Emeril's collection and were asked to be creative.
Today I will focus on the mustard and Emeril's Essence.
One of the products we received was Emeril's Kicked-Up Horseradish Mustard. Did you know I love horseradish and spicy mustard? Well put them together and guess what? It's nirvana!!! So I had to think of something to prepare using this delectable treat that A.J. and the homegirlz would enjoy. The homegirlz don't share my affinity for horseradish.
The mustard is not overpowering and does not contain the grit that a lot of grainey mustards on the market contain. This was a win-win!
Many of you that have read my blog for any amount of time know I use Emeril's Essence in my cooking. Usually, I mix my own Essence, this is the first time I have used the bottled Essence. the bottled Essence smelled and tasted just a tad more garlicky than mine, but my philosophy is you can never have too much garlic.
Honey Mustard Pork Chops -
Heat a 2 tablespoons of canola oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Generously season bone-in loin chops on both sides with Emeril's Essence. Massage the seasoning into the meat and set aside.


In a shallow pan (I used a pie pan), mix together 1/2 cup of Emeril's Kicked-Up Horseradish Mustard and 1/2 cup of clover honey.
Whisk the mustard and honey together and set aside.

Dip each seasoned pork chop into the mustard and honey mixtures and thoroughly coat both sides.

Dredge each pork chop in seasoned Italian bread crumbs. After dredging, pat the bread crumbs onto the chops.
Place the chops into the heated skillet and cook until the chops are golden brown and cooked through.
Place cooked chops onto a baking sheet and place in preheated oven to keep warm until the rest of your meal is ready.
Both A.J. and the homegirlz gave me their official seal of approval and between you and me...I know A.J. got up in the middle of the night and ate one cold.

looks delish!! I think this is the best fb package yet - I can't wait to try the mustard, but the essence and the stock are both awesome.

SusanD said...

Sounds scrumptious. I'm thinking grilled chicken breasts would be good too. Thanks for the inspiration. Blessings, SusanD

Girl I love horseradish. I would be more than happy to eat a ton of it with you.
These look fabulous my dear.

Mary said...

Mmmmmm... mustard and pork go together so well, and honey too - it's just dreamy!! That's so funny your husband got up in the middle of the night and ate one! This Emeril mustard really is good. I'm a horseradish kinda gal too. There were so many participants that I missed out on this opportunity to try the products from Foodbuzz... but, I already had some of this mustard in my fridge anyway! I've used it many times in place of regular mustard and it really is "kicked up" and yummy!

Lisa said...

I love spicy mustard. Nice easy dinner.

Lynda said...

The chops look delish...but then honey and mustard together is a perfect combination!

Bridgett said...

Horseradish and mustard together? I have died and gone to heaven...I adore horseradish! I am trying this as soon as I get my hands on some of this sauce. I bet it would be good with chicken too!

"Honey Mustard" to me says that it's good,l almost no matter what it is. OK, maybe not honey mustard bat wings, but...

Sigh. If only Ben would eat pork.

The pork chops sound excellent with the horseradish mustard! Too bad I didn't get to try Emeril's stuff, missed it because of vacation.

buffalodick said...

Tasty stuff, I bet! In Michigan, we have a company in an old Polish neighborhood called Hamtramick-Dudeks! It is a mustard I would put up against any in the world! Want to try it? E-mail me, as this is the best balanece of heat,sweet,thick mustard I have ever seen anywhere! I'm of Dutch heritage, and I bow to this product....

Lisa said...

These sound so good! Over the weekend I cooked some dry awful pork chops. I realized I'd basically forgotten how to cook them well. Time to start over. Your directions look like a good place to start.

Juliana said...

Wow, this pork chops look delicious...I am sure that the honey mustard will give a really special flavor to it...I will definitely try it!

Chef E said...

OH Katherine, I have been turning my nose up at pork chops as of late, just no desire to bother with them, but this has swayed me...hubby loves honey mustard. I can just imagine how great they must have tasted!

Eva Gallant said...

yumm! and I agree...there's never too much garlic!

just stopping by from SITS to say hi; hope you'll do the same.

Mary said...

It's hard to go wrong with this combo. Your recipe sounds delicious.

gigi said...

You are so funny! We believed you that they were wonderful. That mustard sounds so interesting, yum.

pigpigscorner said...

Love honey mustard! The pork chops look and sound really good!

Chris said...

Yeah, those look GREAT!

I still remember the very first time I EVER tasted horseradish, it was that much of a wonderful experience. I was sitting in a sports bar named Mulligans on Ft Caroline Road in Jacksonville FL. I ordered a roast beef sandwich on an onion roll and had to ask what was the WONDERFUL sauce that was on it. I've been in love ever since, love at first bite!
