We hear a lot today about comfort food; but is it possible to have Heart-Healthy Comfort Food? Yes It Is! We begin the second half of my series on heart-healthy food with today’s selection.
Using fat-free half-and-half gives this dish a creamy, rich flavor that fat-free milk can’t. Sprinkle the finished dish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
1. Sprinkle both sides of pork with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork, and cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and done. Transfer pork to a serving plate, and keep warm.
3. Add broth to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in half-and-half, mustard, and lemon juice. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes or until sauce is slightly thick. Spoon sauce over pork; sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
Serve with: Roasted Potato Wedges
