How to Cook Pork Chops:

  1. Season and sear pork chops on a hot skillet in oil and butter
  2. Saute and season sliced mushrooms
  3. Add remaining ingredients for the creamy mushroom sauce
  4. Return pork chops, smother in sauce and cook until tender

NOTE: The meat cannot thicker than 1/2″ in thickness or else it will not cook through. If the meat is thicker, beat with a meat mallet until about 1/2″ in thickness.

How to Substitute for Bone-in Pork Chops:

This recipe will work for both bone-in or boneless pork chops. If substituting for bone-in, cook an additional 2-3 minutes longer per side, depending on the thickness of the meat. The internal reading of the thickest part of the pork chop should read 145°F which is the safe pork cooking temperature. 

What Kind of Mushrooms Should I use?

Use whatever mushrooms you have on hand. White mushrooms, cremini or portobello mushrooms will all work in this recipe.

NOTE: Did you know that portobello mushrooms are just cremini mushrooms that are harvested when mature and fully grown?

Can I Substitute the Hot Sauce?

The hot sauce gives the creamy mushroom sauce a light kick. If you are concerned about it being too spicy, add less of the sauce or omit it completely, but it does add great flavor to the sauce. 

How to Make the Pork Chops Tender?

Once the pork chops are added back to the pan, turn the heat down to low and allow the pork chops to continue cooking another 5-8. Be sure the heat is really low so it doesn’t burn the sauce.

  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 8 oz mushrooms (white or brown), sliced

  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth

    привіт,Natasha. I found this recipe on your site in August, and use it often. Heavy cream is essential but I remove the chops and set them aside while the liquid thickens into gravy.

    Thank you!

    Hi Natasha,
    Greetings from Ireland. I came across your site for the first time yesterday and decided to go out and buy ingredients for this recipe. Best idea ever! Followed the recipe exactly. It was absolutely delicious with such a wonderful sauce. 100% thumbs up from all. Next on my list is your Roast Pork Tenderloin and I imagine many more to come! So thrilled to have found your site. Thank you. Mary

    Made this recipe for the first time last night and it was so delicious. Even my husband loved it and he is not much of a mushroom gravy fan. I used sriracha for the hot sauce. I only cooked two pork chops but still made the full recipe for the sauce which I’m glad I did. I had the leftover mushroom sauce on some rice with veggies the next day for lunch and it still tasted amazing. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the great recipe Natasha!

    We hung ourselves on this recipe!

    WinCo had a BOGO Free on boneless pork chop 4/pkg, and I had received maitake frondosa and brown clamshell ‘shroooms in my Full Circle box. I searched for pork with mushroom sauce and chose this one. I used smoked-sweet paprika. Fantastic!

    Confession time: I never trust a pork recipe that doesn’t brine the pork until I try it the first time. If the pork comes out really tender WITH brining, then I’ll try it the next time without brining. So, yes I brined – sugar salt and half sharp paprika. I also cut the hot sauce (Chiloula green)was all I had on hand) to ½ tsp.

    The kick form the half sharp parka in the brine and the Chiloula gave the perfect kick of heat for me!

    Can I do this recipe with cubes of pork? I order a half pork every year from the neighbouring farm and have no cutlets left.I just defrosted some cubes and am looking for something yummy to do with them. Have a ton of mushrooms. What do you think?

    We had these for dinner tonight, for the first time, and it won’t be the last, I hope! They were very delicious. (I did everything except for the final cooking last night, then refrigerated everything together, and heated it up and finished cooking before serving.) Thanks for the great recipe.

    Thank you for not using cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup in recipes. Those soups gross me out. I prefer to make my own rou or sauce from my own ingredients from my pantry.

    Still learning to work with cream sauces and pork/chicken. This recipe was quite tastey – cooking just one boneless chop. I’d definitely add much more (sweet) paprika and only a pinch of salt for balance.

    Thank you!

        Hi Natasha-I love the sound of your pork chops recipe. However, I am missing some of the ingredients. I’m just wondering, if it is possible, to omit the whipping cream, and chicken broth? Also, is there another recipe, for cooking the pork chops in the oven? Thank You!

          Hi Elizabeth! I have not tested the recipe without those ingredients. You can search my website using the search bar above for other pork chop recipes. I do not have one for oven roasted though.

    I have been making this for years it’s great. If you want some richness I add Gouda cheese to the sauce to thicken it up. I then add about a tablespoon or two of marmalade while it’s cooking.
