Herbed Pork Chops

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SharleneW

This is a simple, yet delicious entrée. Elegant enough for a dinner party, especially Variation 2. Update: My favorite is the cream/tarragon version, but I decided it needed more sauce. When I make it I triple all of the sauce ingredients.

I tried the creamed version using cream and tarragon (variation at the bottom of the recipe) and it was most delicious. I will definitely make it again.
