Do the holidays have you sick of cooking?

Are you completely sick of stuffing, turkey and sweet potato casserole leftovers but are still trying to recover from all that cooking (and eating) done all last week in preparation for Thanksgiving and therefore don’t feel like cooking? Or is your pocket book running low on funds until the next pay day because you feed everybody and their Mother’s brother for Thanksgiving dinner?

Well I have got the perfect recipe to solve both of those dilemmas!

These Maple-Dijon Marinated Pork Chops are quick and easy (seriously less than 30 minutes from start to finish) and use pantry staples to make a cheap but full flavor meal (yeah I’m talkin’ less than $10 bucks)! Paired with rice and broccoli and you have a complete meal for pennies!

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20-25 minutes Serves 4

8 boneless pork chops, sliced ¼ inch thick

Maple-Dijon Marinate:
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup maple syrup*
1/2 cup Dijon mustard

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add pork chops and cook 1-2 minutes per side just to brown.

Combine marinate ingredients and pour over pork chops in skillet. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer pork chops in sauce for 20-25 minutes, or until sauce is thick and pork chops are cooked through.
