The humble pork chop is like a utility player in baseball: unassuming, versatile, and good with just about everything. This dish elevates it to MVP status with the pairing of the whole grain mustard vinaigrette, made with a coarse-textured mustard that is a rustic sibling of Dijon. The vinaigrette packs a briny punch that pairs perfectly with pork.
