Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle pork chops with 1/4 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.

  • 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 1/4 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.

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 Read More

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. Read More

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 Read More

Herbs overpower mushrooms I wasn't a big fan of how this sauce turned out. I used a combination of tarragon and parsley for the 1/2 cup of fresh herbs and they overpowered the flavor of everything else. I think a 1/4 cup of herbs would have been enough. I did love how fast and easy it was to cook the pork chops and then the sauce using the same skillet. Less dishes! Pros: quick to make one pan Cons: bad sauce flavor Read More

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. Read More
