Pecan Crusted Pork Chops with Creamy Mustard Sauce | www.tasteandtellblog.com
I am coming up on my 3-year anniversary of blogging here at Taste and Tell. And it has had me thinking over the last few days just how much food blogging has evolved over those last 3 years. It seems like when I started, there were only maybe 300 or so food blogs out there. Now, I’m guessing there are thousands. All in a matter of 3 years. That just goes to show how much we all love food, and how much we love to share all of the recipes that come out of our kitchens.

I don’t read as many blogs as I did a few years ago, mainly because being a work-at-home mom takes up all of my time. But I do know all that if I ever need an idea for dinner, food blogs are where I can find more than one idea! I’ll admit that I have hundreds of recipes bookmarked to make. And when I’m feeling lost or uncreative, I can head to those bookmarks and find something great. Like this pork dish. It came from a fellow blogger. I’ve had this recipe bookmarked since 2007, and I don’t know how it took me that long to try it. Because it was simple and delicious – just the way I like recipes!! I loved the pecans in the breading of the pork chops – it adds a whole new level than just plain old bread crumbs. Pair it up with some simple steamed broccoli and Blitz bread – you have a wonderful meal!

Pecan Crusted Pork Chops with Creamy Mustard Sauce
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Boneless pork chops are crusted with pecans and served with a creamy mustard sauce.
Serves: 2-4 servings
  • 4 thin-cut boneless pork chops
  • ¼ c chopped pecans
  • ¼ c cornstarch or rice flour (regular flour works too)
  • 1 egg
  • Salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper
  • Olive oil as needed for sauteing
  • ½ c light mayonnaise (or use regular)
  • 2 tsp (heaping) whole grain mustard
  • 2 tsp (heaping) Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh parsley plus extra for garnish
  1. Mix sauce ingredients, set aside. Meanwhile, grind nuts, cornstarch and spice mixture in a food processor then pour into a shallow bowl or plate. Mix egg with a splash of water in a shallow bowl or plate. Coat pork chops in egg mixture, then coat in nut/cornstarch mixture. Add salt and pepper if needed.
  2. Saute chops, about 2 minutes per side (DO NOT OVERCOOK, they are so lean they’ll get very dry). Serve, topping with sauce.

    I made a salmon recipe like this once. It was delicious. I'll have to give this a try. Pork chops are waiting in the freezer. 🙂

    I made panko parmesan and sage crusted pork chops for a client today – thanks for another recipe I can prepare for my pork loving clients.

    three years! that's great! I admit to thousands of bookmarks too…. oh dear. The fastest way to a dinner recipe for me is definitely a keyword search on my RSS reader! Great-looking pork chops, too, of course!

  15. Joanne says:

    I would love to have seen how blogs have changed throughout the years..I can only imagine what they'll turn into within the next decade!

    I, like you, have tons of recipes bookmarked…which one to make first? This one is certainly going to be added to the list. I love pecans!

    I had to laugh because I am the same way when it comes to bookmarking recipes… in fact, I've seen this before and wanted to make it. Love how you served it here with the tasty sides :).
