Pretzel Crusted Pork Chops with Shredded Brussels Sprouts and a Creamy Mustard Sauce

I use to watch 30 Minute Meals all the time when the Food Network aired cooking shows instead of contests. I watched Rachel use pretzels to coat pork and this gave me the inspiration for this meal. She served hers with sautéed red cabbage. I’m heavy on the Brussels sprouts right now so I used them. This meal looks fancy but it is not difficult to make and takes less than 20 minutes.
