1  teaspoon tomato paste
1 (14½-ounce) can reduced sodium beef broth

SPRINKLE both sides of pork chop evenly with salt and pepper.

COOK chops in 1 tablespoon hot oil in a non-stick, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove skillet from heat. Brush tops of pork chops evenly with Dijon mustard.

Add to skillet, whisking constantly. Whisk in broth, and cook, whisking constantly, 5 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Arrange pork chops on individual plates, and spoon sauce on top.
