mustard-braised lettuce & pork chops

prep time:  tbd
cook time:  tbd
servings:  4

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 cup chicken stock
4 cups lettuce - cut into 1-inch ribbons
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tablespoon heavy cream
4 pork chops

1.  season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper and set aside.  in a large saute pan, heat butter and olive oil over medium-high heat.  once the oil is heated through, add the onion and cook and stir until soft - about 3 minutes.  push the onion to the edge of the pan and add the pork chops, cooking about 4 minutes, stirring the onions occasionally to avoid burning.

2.  turn the pork chops and cook on the other side, about 4 minutes.  stir the dijon mustard into the onions.  pour in the chicken stock and add the lettuce. sprinkle the parsley over the pork chops.  cover and cook for 4 minutes, until the lettuce is mostly wilted.  remove the cover and remove the pan from the heat.
