|Dijon mustard||2 teaspoons|
|Bone-in, center-cut pork chops||2 (8-ounce)|
|Freshly ground pepper to taste|
|Olive oil||2 teaspoons|
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Use a fork to mix the breadcrumbs and mustard together in a small bowl. (The mixture should be crumbly.)
- Season the pork chops with salt and pepper
- Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops for about 3 minutes on each side, until browned.
- Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook the pork chops until a meat thermometer registers 160ºF. This should be about 20-25 minutes. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the chops.
