Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce

These KETO PORK CHOPS with a simple dijon pan sauce are so tender and flavorful. We love that this recipe is ready in just about 20 minutes too!

In our house, we eat a whole lot of pork. 

My husband’s favorite meat is definitely pork and it’s usually a quick and easy protein with so many options for low carb.

Also, hello, bacon. Yum. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

These pork chops with dijon sauce are a newer recipe I’ve been making for the family and we all really love the pop of flavor from the dijon. I think it pairs perfectly with the pork!

Plus it’s one of those low carb recipes that no one even realizes is low carb!

This one is quick, easy, and just takes 5 ingredients (not counting salt and pepper). Ready to do this?

How to make keto pork chops: 

Sprinkle both sides of your pork chops with salt and pepper. 

The sauce is loaded with dijon flavor so we’re keeping the seasoning the chops very simple here. You could mix it up if you wanted, but we think salt and pepper is all that’s needed here.

fried pork chops in skillet

Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet and then pop your chops in. 

Cook for about 5 minutes per side or until the pork is cooked through. Remove the pork chops to a plate and set aside.

Sauce for pork chops:

Add some broth to the hot skillet and start whisking to scrape up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Those browned bits equal loads of flavor! 

Add in your dijon mustard and heavy cream and then cook, stirring often, until the sauce has reduced and thickened to your liking. This should take about 5 minutes over medium heat.

Add your pork chops back to the pan, drizzle with the sauce, and sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Boom. Dinner is done!

We like to drizzle extra dijon sauce over the tops as we serve the pork chops. So good!

This pork tenderloin is one of the more popular recipes on my site. Read the reviews and see for yourself!

My spinach stuffed pork chops and breaded baked pork chops are both popular with my family.

If you have an air-fryer, I highly recommend these air fryer pork chops!

25 thoughts on “Pork Chops with Dijon Sauce”

  1. Replaced the heavy cream with whole fat yogurt, which is what I had on hand and still worked! Also, added a teaspoon of honey – these chops were excellent! Thank you for the recipe!

  2. Terry Crissman

    Looks delicious. I have just started my healthy, low carb this week. I’m planning on making these pork chops tomorrow for dinner. I was wondering if you could make recommendations for a side dish to go along with the meat dinner recipes. Being new to the low carb diet, I’m not really sure what or how to pair the meat with a vegetable. Thank you.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Terry! We do lots of steamed veggies, especially on saucy foods like this. Steamed broccoli is pretty good with the mustard sauce! When first starting out, it’s easiest to just keep it simple. But we have a whole section of side dishes here, if you want something more involved.

  3. Diana Raymond

    We loved this! So yummy and a quick fix too! This we will make again and again

  4. Absolutely delicious! The only change I made was using half and half because that’s what I had on hand.

  5. I don’t care for Dijon mustard and, don’t have any in stock. Do you think plain ol’ yellow mustard would work? And if so, would you tweak the other ingredients to complement yellow mustard? I am loving your recipes!

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Karen! I think you’d be able to sub in yellow just fine, though I haven’t tried it myself.I’m not sure if you’ll need to make other changes, but my guess is that it’ll be fine as is.


    Made these last night and I have to say these are the BEST pork chops I have ever made. Now I’m looking for a pork chops in air fryer recipe which I thought I saw on your site, but can’t find. Can you help me out with that?

  7. Christine Askin-LeClerc

    Hey Karly!! It was delicious!! Hubby loved the sauce and the tenderloing was tender and tasty. Was even good cold the next day. Will definitely make this again

  8. Christine Askin-LeClerc

    I’m going to try this recipe tonight, but I have a whole pork tenderloin. Will brown it in the cast iron frypan, make the sauce and then finish it off in the oven. That should still be moist and flavourful right?? Fingers crossed!

    1. Karly Campbell

      Should be delicious! I think I’d cook the tenderloin completely before making the pan sauce though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I need to lose weight too. Is the low carb recipes best for me. I want to lose 30lbs. Do you have a recipe for Pork Chops with Granny Smith Apples? I found one with the crock pot and cant find it now.

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Mary! Low carb can be a great way to lose weight! Apples are pretty high in sugar, so I don’t have any recipes using them.

  10. I am on a Low Carb, Grain Free, Paleo diet because I must lose about half of me to avoid type 2 diabetes. Really appreciate your recipes. Especially the grain free ones that are super low carb. Many Thanks, Theresa

    1. Karly Campbell

      Glad you find the recipes helpful, Theresa! Hang in there – this way of eating can be a tough adjustment but it’s so worth it!

  11. I made a similar recipe last night. My one change was to thicken the chicken broth with some corn starch and water. My husband and I loved it and I served it with Bob Evans mashed potatoes and broccoli. The heavy cream was a wonderful change to my usual pork chop gravy. I remember back in the 1980s when the “low-fat diet” was the ‘in’ thing to do. I never adhered to that diet because it was so high in carbohydrates, when I checked with my doctor he concurred completely. High carb diets are never good, especially for older people who have Type 2 Diabetes. I have a friend who “swore by” the low-fat diet. She wondered why she gained weight and her husband’s Type 2 diabetes could not stay in control.

    1. I made pork chops with Dijon sauce for dinner tonight. Delicious! My son likes more sauce, so next time I will double the sauce recipe.

        This Mustard Cream Sauce is also to-die-for served with grilled swordfish — or grilled salmon.
