Pork Chops with Dijon Glaze

Pork Chops with Dijon Glaze


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), plus more for drizzling

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped

  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 shots dry sherry

  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 2 rounded tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • A handful of fresh tarragon leaves, chopped

  • 4 bone-in pork chops (1 1/2-inches thick)


Heat the EVOO in a small pot over medium to medium-high heat. Add the garlic, shallot and lemon zest and season with a little salt and lots of pepper. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, then add the sherry and cook for 1 minute. Add the chicken stock and honey and simmer until reduced, 15 minutes. Stir in the mustard and tarragon, then remove the glaze from the heat. Heat a grill pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Coat the pork chops with EVOO and season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the chops, turning occasionally, until cooked through, 12-15 minutes, basting liberally with the glaze during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
