This is so simple, a teenager could do it. Also? We’re using boneless pork chops for this one.

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper and place in an oiled skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Cook for about 6-ish minutes, flipping once.
  3. Once they are cooked through, remove to a plate and set aside.

HOW TO MAKE A CREAMY MUSHROOM SAUCE

  1. Add butter, mushrooms and garlic to the same skillet and cook until the mushrooms are browned.
  2. Stir in chicken broth OR wine; cook until the liquid is mostly evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  3. Mix in the half-and-half and herbs; bring to a simmer.
  4. Place pork chops back into the skillet and cook for 2 more minutes, or until heated through.
  5. Serve.

  1. Very good recipe! Made just as written using white wine. Pork was tender and NOT dry. Will double sauce next time because I like sauce.

  2. Love this very simple recipe. Made it tonight with wine instead of chix broth it adds a nice depth to the flavor. I served it over garlic mashed cauliflower.

  3. Ive added this recipe on my phobes home screen for at least 3 yrs… Lol thats how much my family adores this recipe. I follow the recipe exactly as written but i double the mushroom gravy because i serve it with a pasta. Ceasar salad. Finishes the meal. Ive used boneless or bone in pork chops and it always comes out juicy. Absolutely delicious!

      That’s great to hear! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am very glad you enjoyed it! Thank YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I had made 2 change:
    1. My mushrooms were no longer good, so they had to go in the trash. Since I had already stared the chops, I substituted sweet peppers & onions. Was still very tasty!

    2. My hubby wasn’t ready to eat when the chops were done. So I just put the cover on the pan & kept the stove on. So the sauce wasn’t as creamy. But it did coat the chops & was really good!

    Served with herb roasted potatoes.

  5. I thought this would be a good dinner for us, but when I cook chops in a fry pan they come out very tough. This recipe is no exception to the rule. Also, I had to add some Wondra to the sauce, but it was still not very thick. It was flavorful, though.

    What is the trick to make the chops tender, please, and the sauce thicker?

    1. Bake covered in casserole dish with tin foil over top after you have seered them make sure they are done then bake remaining ingredients 20 to 30 min more.

    2. I was wondering as far as the pork chops go to make them tender , if you could sear them than put in the crock pot?

  6. Found this recipe and made it the same night. Both my husband and I loved it. Best pork chops we have ever ate. I used pork chops with the bone in. The herbs made the chops pop and the gravy was light and filling.

  7. Hi,

    This Pork Chop w/ Mushrooms & Cream Sauce looks scrumptious & simple!!!!!. I don’t know if I am not seeing
    something, but could you post the measurements for the ingredients. It would be much appreciated.
    Thank you
