Preparation

Step 1

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees

Pat the pork chops dry; season the chops with salt and Cajun seasoning. Pour the flour into a shallow bowl. Dredge the pork chops in the flour to coat, and tap off any excess. Reserve the remaining flour.

In an oven-proof skillet (cast iron is my personal favorite) heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add the chops and sear until browned, 2-3 minutes turn over and put into the oven. Roast until they reach an internal temperature of 145F (about 20 minutes). Transfer to a plate; cover loosely with foil. Drain any excess fat.

NOTE: Can you cook the chops on the stove top? Yes, but I find that searing and roasting yields better results and less risk of overcooked, dried chops. You can use boneless chops, but they can dry out much quicker than chops with the bone-on.

Add the butter, onion, garlic, thyme and a pinch of salt to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is golden brown, 8-10 minutes.

Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved flour to the skillet and cook, stirring 1 minute.

Add the chicken broth, and Dijon, and the buttermilk and bring to a boil and cook until reduced by one-third, about 2 minutes.

Return the chops to the pan, including the juice.

Perfect with a side of mashed potatoes or roasted sweet potatoes.

CAJUN SEASONING BLEND
Mix all ingredients together and store in a small jar.

I save glass spice jars and re-use them for homemade spice mixes. Super easy, cost-effective!
