When working mothers get no assistance when it comes to making dinner, setting the table or cleaning up, they need quick and easy recipes to make meal time less stressful.

In the second installment in Good Morning America's "Simplify Your Life" series, Food Editor Sara Moulton offered quick and easy recipes for dinner time.

Check out the recipe below for Pork Chops with Mustard Crumbs.


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/3 cups coarse rye bread crumbs (2 to 3 slices)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, finely chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 rib pork chops (3/4- to 1-inch-thick - 2 pounds total)
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 425°F.

    Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté bread crumbs, garlic, sage, salt, and pepper, stirring, until crumbs are golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes.

    Transfer crumbs to a bowl and clean skillet. Pat pork dry. Heat remaining tablespoon oil in skillet over moderately high heat, then brown chops in batches, turning over once, about 4 minutes.

    Transfer chops to a baking pan and spread tops with mustard and then bread crumbs. Roast in middle of oven until meat is just cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
