Because of its antibacterial properties, mustard does not require refrigeration.
It will not grow mold, mildew, or harmful bacteria. Unrefrigerated mustard will lose pungency more quickly, and should be stored in a tightly sealed, sterilized container in a cool, dark place. Mustard can last indefinitely, though it may dry out, lose flavor, or brown from oxidation. Mixing in a small amount of wine or vinegar will often revitalize dried out mustard. Some types of prepared mustard stored for a long time may separate, causing "mustard water", which can be corrected by stirring or shaking. If stored for a long time, unrefrigerated mustard can acquire a bitter taste.

Season pork chops with salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add pork chops and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
In a small bowl, combine the beef broth, parsley, mustard, paprika, onions, and season with salt and pepper. Pour the broth mixture over the pork chops. Return the mixture to boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Enjoy!
