These German pork chops ("Schwinekotletts"), seasoned with mustard, are a traditional recipe from the Düsseldorf area.
This dish is finished off with a mustard sauce that is made by de-glazing the pan with mustard, cream, and wine. Now, doesn't that just sound delicious!
This may just become your best pork chop recipe -- a really nice change from the standard way of cooking pork chops!
This method uses mustard and flour as the coating. This gives a crispy and tasty crust to this traditional German dish.
Although the most common pork dish in Germany is the schnitzel, which is really just thinly sliced boneless pork, pork chops are often served as an alternative. Frequently they are breaded, such as the ones you'll find in breaded pork chop recipes.
This variation above is from Düsseldorf, which is the capital city of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
