Laura's Sauced Pork Chops
Over medium-high heat, place pork chops seasoned with salt and pepper in skillet and cook about 4 minutes each side depending on thickness. Make sure skillet is hot so you can get a good sear. When they're mostly done, remove and cover or put in warm oven.

De-glaze the pan with chicken stock, bone broth, or white wine and scrape up all the bits at the bottom of the pan. Reduce to a simmer and whisk about 1 1/2-2 Tbs of Dijon mustard into about 1/3 cup of heavy cream and then dump that into the pan. The sauce will thicken up in a minute or two and just pour it on top of the meat and steamed veggies.
