How to Make It

Step 1

In a shallow nonreactive baking dish, blend the honey, vinegar, and mustard. Add the pork chops, turn to coat and let marinate for at least 10 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 450°. Heat a large, heavy ovenproof skillet. Add the oil and heat until almost smoking. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, add them to the skillet and cook over high heat until well browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn the chops, put the skillet in the oven and bake for about 12 minutes, or until the meat is just cooked through but still juicy. Transfer the chops to plates and serve with the home fries and watercress.

Step 3

Wine Recommendation: An Alsace Gewürztraminer, such as the 1992 Trimbach or the 1992 Léon Beyer, has a dry, aromatic spiciness that accents the pork chops and a pleasantly bitter finish that contrasts with the honeyed sweetness of the glaze.

The pork chops turned out tender and moist but there was no flavor whatsoever. If I made again I would and a little heat.
