Asian Marinated Boneless Pork Chops

I'm going through some kind of a rut right now with my recipes.  I have about 10-15 recipes that I can whip up pretty quickly, are easy and I know Jeff and I love.  Eventually though, I just get tired of making the same thing over and over and that's when my mind starts stirring.  I start reading the cookbooks that were getting a little dusty, searching through the internet or Pinterest.  Anything for a little inspiration.  

Mostly though, my go to way to think of a new recipe is by thinking what I would want if I went to a nice restaurant. First I start with a protein, and then a side... and I go from there.  This week, I was craving pork chops!  Salt and pepper is always a great way to start to season your meals but you just have to switch it up a little here are there to get something different.  So here we go, my little pork chop creation. Asian Marinated Boneless Pork Chops.

Difficulty: Super Easy
Prep Time: 1hr  Total Time: 1hr 20mins

6 Bonesless Pork Chops
3T Soy Sauce
3T Mustard
4T Olive Oil
Fresh Parsley (chopped)
Fresh Chives (chopped)
Salt and Pepper
1/2 C Heavy Cream

1. Lay out your chops on a cutting board and season well with salt and pepper on both sides.  Put in a bowl or baking pan and add soy sauce, half of the olive oil and mustard.  Mix well.  Let rest about an hour.  I did mine about half in the fridge, and half out to let the pork come to room temperature before cooking. This makes it cook more evenly.

2. Heat a pan with the other half of the olive oil to a medium-high heat.  Once your pan is hot put your chops in the pan and cook until brown about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side 2ish minutes. Make sure you put all the sauce your chops where marinating in, in the pan to cook together.
3. Take the chops out and let rest on a plate.  Add your heavy cream (you can also use regular milk if you have that but will have to thicken the sauce with something... Corn starch or flour) and mix well making sure to scrape all the brown bits of the bottom of the pan. Stir and cook on medium-low heat until well mixed and thick to a gravy consistancy. 
4. Serve gravy over chops with your favorite sides and enjoy!
