How to Cook Pork Chops:
- Season and sear pork chops on a hot skillet in oil and butter
- Saute and season sliced mushrooms
- Add remaining ingredients for the creamy mushroom sauce
- 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.
Now imagine dipping a soft bread roll into that creamy mushroom sauce. This pork recipe is sure to become a favorite for busy weeknights.
