A note about serious food allergies

Snack food, bar food, served piping hot with spicy mustard at the ball game… pretzels are everywhere with their crunchy, salty goodness. But that crunch and the salt can do one better than just being paired with beer and baseball; here, we coat a succulent, juicy pork chop with pretzel perfection. And just to keep in the familiar, we give you a Dijon mayo for a seriously yummy flavor pairing. You'll never look down on snack food again.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork in Steps 1, 2, and 3, coating in breading, then searing until browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to baking sheet and roast until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 10-12 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim bottoms off Brussels sprouts and thinly slice. Peel and slice shallot into thin rounds. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Bread the Pork Chops

    Combine half the mayonnaise (reserve remaining for sauce) and 2 tsp. water in a mixing bowl. Finely crush pretzels until consistency of breadcrumbs. For best results, place in a plastic bag and crush with a heavy object. Combine pretzels and a pinch of salt on a plate. Dip a pork chop in mayonnaise-water mixture, coating completely. Transfer pork chop to pretzel breading plate and flip until coated, pressing gently to adhere. Set breaded pork chop on a plate. Repeat with second pork chop.

  3. 3

    Roast the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and pork chops to hot pan. Cook until golden brown, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. Roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 3 minutes. While pork chops roast, cook vegetables.

  4. 4

    Cook the Vegetables

    Return pan used to sear pork chops to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil, Brussels sprouts, shallot, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until Brussels sprouts are browned and tender, but still crisp, 7-9 minutes. Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Make Dijonnaise and Finish Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine remaining mayonnaise, brown sugar, and Dijon. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, drizzling Dijonnaise over pork. Bon appétit!
