Makes 4 servings.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
4 boneless pork loin chops, 3/4-inch thick (1 1/2 pounds)
1 to 2 tablespoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Peppercorn Mélange, coarsely cracked
2/3 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons dry white wine
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Sage, Rubbed
1. Coat both sides of each pork chop with cracked peppercorns, pressing so pepper mixture adheres to meat.
2. Cook pork chops in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat 6 minutes per side or until desired doneness. (If pork browns too quickly, reduce heat slightly.) Remove pork to serving platter; cover and keep warm. Scrape any burnt peppercorns from skillet and discard.
3. For the sauce, add cream, wine, mustard and sage to skillet. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 minutes or until reduced to about 1/2 cup. Serve over pork chops.
To crack peppercorns: Place peppercorns in resealable plastic bag. Close tightly. Pound with a rolling pin, mallet or heavy skillet until coarsely cracked.
