Transfer to a platter and cover with aluminum foil and set aside.

Add the Port and stock and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until reduced b half, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Whisk in the mustard and then the butter. When the butter has melted and the sauce is smoot, season with salt and pepper. Slice the chops in to individual pieces, spoon on the sauce, and serve immediately.
