Braised Honey Mustard Pork Chops

One should be open to change.

I, almost always, buy a boneless pork loin and slice it myself to get thick, boneless pork chops.

I do that because pork chops here are always thin and with the bone – rib chops, not center-cut.

But, sometimes, thinly cut rib chops are exactly what works best.

You could use boneless chops for this, but if they are more than 3/8″ (1cm) you might want to increase the  braising time by 5 – 10 minutes to get them really tender.

I just saw a headline that Marie Kondo (remember her? The queen of neat?) is tired of being tidy.

It only took the first 10 minutes of watching her on Netflix to get me to that point. That was 4 or 5 years ago and I haven’t heard much about her since – or I just blocked it out.

Seeing her in a headline struck me as rather humorous since I’ve spent the last few days washing our leather furniture…. Something she would probably approve of.

I blame it on mon mari.

He managed to get a cut in his ottoman / foot stool. He bought some glue for repairing leather and we attempted to fix it.

It didn’t work.

A few hours of research, including watching leather repair videos, leather restoration videos, leather care videos, (it’s winter), etc. and I ordered the appropriate ‘kits’ from a furniture repair company.

I decided if I’m going to do something at least I can attempt to do it properly.

I bought our leather furniture (2 easy chairs with foot stools, couch, love seat, and recliner) 25 years ago with the intent of never buying furniture again. I suppose it’s time I gave it a little care.

There are some scratches, a couple of cuts, some wear on the arms, etc., that, according to my research, can all be fixed.

But first – the leather has to be clean.

So I’m washing it – with leather soap, water, a sponge, and a drying towel.

Gosh this is fun!

  1. I have an antique leather chair I bought off eBay a couple years ago from someone in Chicago. It was shipped to me and it’s gorgeous. She must have used a leather cleaner on it though because the leather was very sticky which is a problem with leather cleaners so be very careful. I ended up cleaning it with Dawn dishwashing liquid, just a few drops in a bucket of warm water, then wiping it down with a clean, warm water cloth and drying it really well. Worked great!

    I love pork. I could eat it three days a week and be a happy camper.

    • I bought all the stuff from the Leather Furniture Clinic and it’s great. I have no idea what she used but I’ve used lots of different stuff and nothing made it sticky. But this new cleaner is great. Although it tends to be slippery right after I put the lotion on lol

  2. I am tired just thinking about washing all that leather furniture !!! Good to have a project so kudos to you !!!
