Loveless Cafe Pork Chops

This is the only recipe from Martha Stewart that I have ever tried and it is one of my favorites. Well actually it's not hers. She had the owner of the Loveless Cafe from Nashville on her show one day, and I thought "hmmm, that looks really easy and sounds yummy!". And it is! And the aroma it creates is amazing!

Serves 6
2 tablespoons of canola oil( or whatever oil you prefer)
Six 6-ounce boneless center-cut pork chops, trimmed of any fat (Get the thick chops for more a more tender juicy bite)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire or soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic salt

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together mustard, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic salt with 1/3 cup water. Pour over pork chops. Reduce heat, cover, and cook until tender, about 1 hour.
Transfer pork to a serving platter. Raise heat to medium-high and cook sauce until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce over pork chops and enjoy!
We eat this rice and a salad or greens of some kind. On the show it was made with a cucumber slaw that I have yet to try.
If you go to www.marthastewart.com, this recepie is called "Braised Pork Chops" and the slaw recipe is with it.
