Now that the weather has started to cool down, comfort food is on the menu. Hearty soups, stews, and noodle dishes make weeknight meals super easy and they are foods the whole family loves. It’s the type of food that sticks to your ribs and warms your heart and soul. That’s Comfort Food!
The recipe I have for you today is a great comfort good recipe for smothered pork chops with a mustard gravy. It’s all served over egg noodles. It’s rich, creamy, and the perfect meal this time of year. It reminds me of my grandmother’s cooking. Many of her recipes were adaptations of German foods. I can still remember her Lebkuchen (German Spice Cookies) and beef stroganoff with egg noodles. Oh soooo good!
For recipes like this one or my Lemon Chicken Piccata, I like to use a broader egg noodle. The traditional type of German noodle is Spaetzle, a thin egg noddle. But I really like to use these No Yolks Broad Noodles.
These No Yolks Broad Noodles really soak up the all the flavors of the sauce. Every bite is covered with the creamy gravy. MMMMMMMmmmmm. Words just can’t describe. You’ll just have to try it for yourself.
No Yolks noodles always cook up really well and most importantly they hold together. No Yolks noodles come in a variety of cuts (Broad, Extra Broad, Fine, Kluski, Dumplings, and now Stir-Fry), but I like broad best for this recipe.
I’ve modified my Schnitzel’s Mustard Gravy recipe for this version by taking out the mushrooms and adding a few more sautéed onions. Start to finish this recipe takes just over 20 minutes. Whether for an easy weeknight dinner or Sunday Supper with the family, you are really going to like this one. Here’s the recipe.
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 5-6 Pork chops
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

- In a skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium high heat.
- Season both sides of the pork chops and place into the hot skillet.
- Cook 4-5 minutes on each side until browned.
- Remove from pan and set aside. (Note: Pork will finish cooking once added back to the pan with the sauce.)
- Add additional tablespoon of butter to the skillet.
- Add onions and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
- Add apple cider vinegar, dried thyme, garlic powder and paprika to the skillet. Cook for 1 minute.
- Add heavy cream and mustard and stir well to combine.

- Simmer for 5-6 minutes for the sauce to thicken and the pork to cook all the way through.

No Yolks noodles are really versatile and can be used for a variety of dishes from soups to casseroles. Don’t stop at Grandma’s Beef Stroganoff though. Try it in Miso Soup or this recipe One Pot Creamy Noodles with Bacon and Peas. Everything’s better with bacon! Right?
