4 1-inch Pork Chops

1/3 cup Water

Melt Butter with Olive Oil in Large Skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle chops with Salt and Pepper. Add chops to skillet and sauté until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Cover skillet and cook until chops are done, about 9 minutes. Transfer chops to warm platter; cover or set in warm oven (to keep warm).

Add water, shallot, and garlic to skillet. Cook until shallot is soft, about 2 minutes. Add any juices from chops. Mix in Cornichons and Mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over chops. Sprinkle with Parsley.
