2 pork chops with bones, about 2 cm thick   360 g
1/4 tsp ground pepper   1 g
1 shallots, finely chopped   40 g
1 tbsp canola oil   15 mL
1/2 tbsp margarine non-hydrogenated   7 g
1/4 cup chicken broth, low-sodium   65 mL
2 tsp Dijon mustard   10 mL
1 1/2 tbsp dairy blend 5%   23 mL
1 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   1/4 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  aluminum foil    

Before you start

Keep the individual serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Pat the pork chops dry, then sprinkle with pepper. Finely chop the shallots. Set aside.
  2. Heat a dry, heavy skillet over moderately high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the oil, swirling the pan to coat the bottom, then add the chops and brown 2 min on each side. Transfer the pork chops to a plate, then set them aside in the oven, loosely covered with foil.
  3. Meanwhile, add the margarine to the skillet, then cook the shallots over moderately high heat, with stirring, until softened, 3-4 min. Add the broth and boil 2 min, scraping up any brown bits. Add the mustard and dairy mix, return the mixture to a boil, then add the lemon juice. Return the pork chops to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, until the sauce is slightly thickened and the meat is cooked, 3-4 min. Add salt to taste.
  4. Serve on the warmed plates.
