“This is a great pork recipe. Mustard is a classic with pork, but when you add the extra zing of horseradish and cayenne, and then smooth it out with a little cream and butter, well, it's devilishly delicious.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Season pork with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat oil in an ovenproof skillet over high heat. Cook pork until browned on one side, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn over pork and transfer the skillet to the preheated oven. Cook until pork is browned and still slightly pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer pork to a plate.
  3. Remove any excess oil from the skillet and place it over medium-high heat. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil, scraping any browned bits off of the bottom of the pan. Whisk in cream, horseradish, Dijon mustard, and cayenne pepper. Continue cooking until the mixture is reduced to a thick sauce, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in cold butter. Stir in chives.
  4. Slice pork into 1/2-inch slices and serve topped with sauce.

I love this method for cooking the pork. Be careful with the salt on the meat though - between the salt on the meat and the salt in the broth & mustard it left the sauce too salty.

I made this for Mother's Day. My family absolutely loved it. The recipe was spot on....the pork was cooked perfectly and the sauce was so delicious. I wouldn't change a thing and will definitely make this again. Thank you, Chef John!

Everyone raved about this recipe. I'm just now realizing that I didn't add the butter or chives at the end. Not sure how (or if) that would have changed the results but we loved it.
