Lemon Mustard Pork Chop

Lemon Mustard Pork Chops can be made in the broiler or on the grill. I prefer the grill because it adds a nice smoke flavor to the pork.

Lemon Mustard Pork Chops are tangy from the lemon and the dijon mustard. Rosemary and fresh parsley are two of my favorite herbs to season pork. I like to squeeze a little more lemon over top of my pork chop. 

I found this recipe in my Taste of Home Healthy Cooking 2014 Annual Recipes Cookbook.
