Pork Chops with Maple, Mustard & Capers

Rach shares her recipe for bone-in pork chops with a quick and easy pan sauce using maple syrup, mustard & capers.

Round them out with Rach's sides of Marinated Mushroom & Escarole Salad and Brown Butter Sage Mashed Potatoes & Parsnips, plus John's Sage Advice Cocktail, which was inspired by the meal.


  • 4 bone-in pork chops (about 1¼ inches thick)

  • Salt and pepper

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • 3 tablespoons drained capers

  • ½ cup stock or bone broth

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or smoked maple syrup

  • A small handful of fresh parsley, finely chopped


Preheat cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Pat chops dry and season with salt and pepper, then cook in canola oil and brown 4 to 6 minute on each side, remove. Reduce heat to low, add butter and shallots and stir a minute, then add flour and stir, add capers, then stock, mustards and syrup, add chops back and turn 2 to 3 minutes, then top with parsley and remove from heat.
