Pork chops smothered in creamy mushroom sauce—sounds irresistible, right? This dish is a hit at my house, and I make it often. It’s not just because it’s super quick and easy (though, honestly, that’s a huge plus!), but it’s also because it’s downright delicious. The pork chops get a nice sear on the outside, staying juicy on the inside, and that mushroom sauce!? Creamy, rich, and packed with flavor, it just makes everything that much better.

Why I Love My Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops Recipe

Wondering what to make for dinner? Here are just a few reasons that make this a perfect weeknight meal!

  • Quick and easy. I love a good 30-minute meal. This recipe is simple to follow, and it will only take you 30 minutes to make from start to finish. Perfect for busy weeknights.

What You’ll Need

It’s time to grab the ingredients and make this easy cream of mushroom pork chops recipe! You’ll need bone-in pork chops, a mix of spices, some cooking oil, butter, and a handful of other key ingredients for that dreamy creamy mushroom sauce.

For the pork

  • Bone-in pork chops – Boneless pork chops will also work. You just won’t need to cook them as long.
  • Seasoning –  Salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Vegetable oil – Avocado or another neutral cooking oil with a high smoke point will also do the trick.

For the sauce

  • Butter – I prefer unsalted butter because it allows more control over the final flavor of the sauce.
  • Cremini mushrooms – White mushrooms are OK to use, or sliced portabellas.
  • Garlic – I used fresh garlic for the sauce, but 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder is a good substitute.
  • Flour – Use all-purpose flour to thicken the sauce.
  • Milk – You can use half and half for a richer sauce.
  • Canned cream of mushroom soup – Cream of chicken soup is a good alternative.
  • Herbs and seasonings – Dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, pepper, and fresh parsley.

How To Make Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops

Ready to make the best pork chops you’ve ever tasted? Let’s break down the steps to transform these ingredients into a dish that’ll have everyone asking for seconds!

  • Prep. Set the oven to 200°F.
  • Cook the pork chops. Season the pork chops on both sides and heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the chops for 4 minutes on either side. Upon flipping, add 2 tablespoons of butter to the pan and baste the chops with butter as they cook. Transfer them to a serving platter and place them in the oven.
  • Make the sauce. Melt the remaining butter in the same skillet over medium heat and add the mushrooms. Saute until tender. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant. Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk, followed by the cream of mushroom soup.
  • Season and simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, stir in the thyme and oregano, and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Put it all together. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops, garnish with parsley, and serve.

Tips for Success

  • Don’t crowd the pan. When searing the pork chops. don’t crowd the pan. The meat will not caramelize properly. Sear them in batches if needed.
  • Keep those pork chops warm. Keeping the pork chops in a warm oven while preparing the sauce is crucial so you don’t end up with cold chops by the time your sauce is ready to serve.
  • Give the flour time to cook. Upon adding the flour to the sauteed mushrooms, make sure to give it a minute or so to cook, whisking frequently. Otherwise, you’ll end up with an unpleasant raw flour taste in your sauce.
  • Whisk until smooth. The cream of mushroom will come out of the can quite chunky. Be patient and keep on gently whisking it into the sauce until the sauce smooth. It will get there.

Serving Suggestions

I love to serve pork chops with potatoes of pretty much any kind, from mashed to fried. A soup and salad is also welcome.

Proper Storage

  • To store. Allow the pork chops to cool completely before sealing them in an airtight container (sauce included). You can store them in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
  • To reheat. Transfer the pork chops to the fridge to thaw (if applicable) before arranging them in a single layer in a baking dish. Pour the sauce over the chops, cover the dish with aluminum foil, and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until heated through. Otherwise, pop individual portions (sauce included) in the microwave and heat in 30-second intervals until warm.
