Perfect Pork Chop: Pork Chops with Sweet Mustard Sauce

I get asked time and time again, "How do I make a perfect pork chop?"
Well, pork chops can be tricky, but I have a recipe for you that is easy, takes only 30 minutes, and most of all...TASTY! :)

Pork Chops with Sweet Mustard Sauce
Grocery List:
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 medium red onion, thinly sliced, plus 1/3 cup finely chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
4 boneless pork chops (about 5 oz each), trimmed of excess fat
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 1/2 Tbsp peach or apricot jam

How to make it:
1. Pour vinegar over onion slices in a shallow dish. Marinate at least 10 minutes or until ready to serve.

2. Meanwhile heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper on both sides. Add to skillet and cook, turning once, 7 to 8 minutes until browned and cooked through. (Do NOT over cook!)

3. While pork cooks, mix sour cream, mustard, jam and chopped onion until blended. Serve on the pork; top with the pickled onions.
