Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops

These cream of mushroom pork chops are comforting and easy to make. Cream of mushroom soup is a great base for a quick and foolproof sauce; dry sherry adds depth of flavor. Shiitake mushrooms add more rich and earthy flavors to the dish, making this perfect for a weeknight or for company.

  • 4 (8 ounce) bone-in center-cut pork chops, about 3/4-inch thick

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 (5 ounce) package sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced shallot

  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • ½ cup dry sherry

  • 1 (10.5 ounce) can low-sodium cream of mushroom soup

  • ¾ cup water

  • 1 teaspoon lower-sodium Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh chives


  1. Let pork chops stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Pat dry with paper towels and sprinkle evenly with salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat; add the pork chops and cook, undisturbed, until golden brown on 1 side, 4 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more. Transfer the pork chops to a plate (they will not be cooked through); do not wipe the pan clean.

  2. Add mushrooms to the pan; cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add shallot, garlic and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil; cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallot is softened, about 3 minutes. Add sherry; cook, stirring constantly and scraping up browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the liquid is almost completely reduced, about 1 minute. Add soup and water; cook, stirring, until the mixture comes to a simmer. Stir in Worcestershire, mustard and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  3. Nestle the pork chops, browned-side up, into the mixture in the pan; cook over medium-high heat until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 145°F, about 8 minutes. Transfer the pork chops to 4 plates or a large platter; spoon the mushroom sauce over the chops. Sprinkle with chives.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
