Maple Dijon Pork Chops with Sauté Brussel Sprouts

Maple dijon marinades are one of my favorites. We had these beautiful chops in the fridge and I thought it was a perfect moment to break out the mustard! To accompany the pork I opted for brussel sprout. Yum. Do not give in to your childhood fears of this veggie. It is so versatile and so yummy. Enjoy!
