Pork Chops with Nanette Sauce – Michelle Roth


My name is Michelle Roth and I’ll be sharing with you what I like to think of as the French culinary world’s best kept secret. Nanette Sauce. Its deceptively complex flavors hide the fact that this recipe has a total of six ingredients and takes less than twenty minutes to make.

What you’ll need:

4-6 center cut pork chops, depending on how many you want to feed

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

2 tbsp tomato pasta

1 tbsp dijon mustard

2 tbsp olive oil

Salt and Pepper to taste

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Pat pork chops dry, season with salt and pepper

  2. Put olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat

  3. Once pan is hot, add pork chops. (Don’t overcrowd the pan so everything gets all brown and yummy)

  4. Cook about 3 minutes, flip over and brown the other side.

  5. Remove pork chops from the pan, place on a platter to the side.

  6. Add cream to pan, scrape off delicious bits from the bottom of the pan

  7. Add tomato paste, mustard.. stir until combined

  8. Add chops back in, cook until they reach desired doneness.



Elle Thomas has had a crush on Jim Conroy for months now. Among their small circle of friends, they’re the only two single people left. It makes sense that he might gravitate toward her at social events, and maybe even flirt a little bit, right?  Elle can’t help but want more, though.

Jim may be going insane. He’s been chasing Elle for months. He’s flirted with her, asked her out, and done everything else he could think of to get her attention short of skywriting his feelings. When Elle finally agrees to go out with him, things quickly heat up between them.

What starts out as a single spark of attraction between them quickly burns out of control. As they settle into the beginnings of a relationship, one moment will change their lives forever. Is their relationship strong enough to survive when reality sets in?
