  • 4 bone-in pork chops, ½- ¾ inch thick (about 2 pounds), trimmed
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ⅓ cup minced shallots

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and add 2 pork chops. Cook, turning once, until cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove to a plate and tent with foil. Repeat with another 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining chops.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add shallots and mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently until the mushrooms are browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Add wine and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt; cook, stirring up any browned bits, until the liquid is mostly evaporated, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in half-and-half and herbs; cook until bubbling, about 1 minute more. Serve the chops with the mushroom sauce.

Delicious recipe! I agree regarding the amount of sauce that was produced...it would have been slightly better with more. Added Garlic and Basil to ingredients with a little extra half & Half-(yummy Half and half) and left out Tarragon (didn't have any).

Loved this recipe! The only changes I made, were adding a tablespoon of butter just prior to cooking the mushrooms and shallots, a sprinkle of flour, and a splash of chicken stock. I used chives and parsley for the herbs. The gravy was excellent, but next time I may just stop after cooking the mushrooms and shallots and sprinkle a few herbs on top.

Fresh, simple, real ingredients! I'm so happy I found this recipe! I used baby portabella mushrooms, and pinot grigio, fresh parsley, oregano, rosemary, chives, sage, hyssop (don't actually know what that one is, but who cares!), basil. The fresh herbs MADE the sauce! The wine cooked down to just the right sweetness, and the mushrooms absorbed the flavors wonderfully. The pork chops cooked perfectly. It was a slam dunk for me! Check this one off as a keeper, and a 'hit' among too many cooking 'misses' recently. Pros: one pan, healthy, flavorful, easy

Easy I didn't have fresh herbs, so I skipped them and it was perfect. Also, I added a couple of tablespoons of butter to the sauce, and returned the pork chops to the sauce at the end. The butter may not have been needed, but it was delicious. Might add garlic next time, but probably won't. It was fine without it. Pros: Easy to make, one pot

Fast, easy and no fuss This turned out so flavorful despite the little effort and few ingredients needed. My husband loves his sauces though so there wasn't enough for him. I'll double the sauce for him next time. The herbs i used were parsley, sage, cilantro and watercress. I could have used more easily, but I love my greens! Pros: fewer dishes, fast, easy

Great Meal This is a great recipe, my family love this meal even my 3 year old son. I didn't have any shallots, so I used green onions and add some fresh garlic for little extra taste and it was awesome. I love this recipe and I will cook again. Pros: Quick and Super Easy

so yummy! My husband is not a big mushroom fan but he said he liked this...a lot! Great taste! Pork chops were very tender. Leftovers were just as tasty! Pros: My husband and I both enjoyed this dish! We will definitely create it again.
