What Is Creole Mustard?

Creole mustard is a spicy whole-grain mustard that is popular in New Orleans cooking. It has a good bit of tang. I use Zatarain’s Creole mustard. I also love it in this Chicken wtih Creole Mustard Cream Sauce recipe.

How To Serve Pork Chops With Creole Mustard Sauce

Goes great with Southern-Style Green Beans or Creamy Butter Beans and white rice.

Which Type of Pork Chop To Use?

I’ve used boneless pork chops for this recipe, but you can use bone-in pork chops. I actually think they have a little more flavor and stay juicier when the bone is in. I prefer pork chops that are on the thicker side. Thin pork chops cook so quickly and can sometimes be dry and chewy.

Is This Dish Spicy?

The mustard and Creole seasoning add some heat. To make the sauce spicier, add a pinch of cayenne pepper.

Variations

Finely diced yellow or sweet onion can be used instead of shallot. Try adding some chopped fresh thyme or rosemary for extra flavor.
