How to Cook Pork Chops:

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.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops about 1" thick
  • ¾ tsp salt or to taste
  • ¼ tsp black pepper or to taste
  • ½ tsp paprika or to taste
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 8 oz mushrooms (white or brown) sliced
  • ½ medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp parsley optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Season pork chops with salt, pepper and paprika. Heat 1 Tbsp butter and 2 tsp oil in a large pan over med/high heat. Once hot, sear chops 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown. Remove pork chops and cover to keep warm.

  2. In the same pan, add 1 Tbsp butter and sliced mushrooms. Cook 2 minutes over medium heat, or until lightly golden.

  3. Add 1 Tbsp butter and onions. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Cook 3-4 minutes, until onions are tender. 

  4. Add minced garlic and saute 30 seconds, stirring frequently. Add flour and stir vigorously for 30 seconds.

  6. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5-8 minutes, allowing the pork chops to become tender and the flavors of the mushroom sauce to penetrate into the pork chops. Garnish if desired and serve.

    I brine the porc for a while before cooking to make them really tender.
    Recipe is simple and very tasty.
    I also put it all in a pot in the oven for the last stage, to finish and keep warm while prepping everything else. Reply

    I defrosted a pork cutlet, bone in, before going down the pub. Came back and followed the recipe as close as possible, added lots of Portuguese Piri Piri sauce and now call it cutlet with devilled creamed mushroom sauce. Lovely with a jacket spud. Back down the pub now. Reply

    Was excited for this recipe but in the given time the pork chops definitely weren’t ready. Cooking time definitely needs to be adjusted +15-20 minutes, if you don’t want to eat raw pork chops. Reply

      Hi Sintija, if are seared first and then cooked in the sauce, they should be cooked through, but it can vary depending on the thickness of your pork chops and also the heat setting on your stove. If you are using thicker pork chops, I would cook longer. Reply
