Baked Pork Chops in Sauce and Vegetables

Now summer is over, grilling outdoors begins to wane as the temperature changes. I began to look for a new recipe for  pork chops.  Having many cookbooks, I decided I would try a recipe that I have not tried from The New Your Times Menu Cook Book by Craig Claiborne, 1966.  The recipe for Country Pork Chops became my Baked Pork Chops.

I really did not adapt it so much. A pork seasoning dry rub was used to marinate the pork chops before browning. I used Dijon mustard in place of prepared mustard and beef bouillon in place of the beef stock.  My other changes were using a thinner pork chop, not the 1 inch thick and only 2 instead of 6 and preparing a smaller amount of the sauce. The sauce recipe would be enough for 6 chops.  Actually thought the sauce would be good over other meats and less expensive cuts such as pork or steak cutlets.
