This is a very easy dish to make. The mushrooms and asparagus really add to the flavor of the pork chops!
- 4 boneless pork chops, 3/4 inch thick
- 1 bunch fresh asparagus
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 6 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
- 4 shallots, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- In a skillet brown pork chops on both sides in olive oil (2-3 minutes).
- Remove chops from skillet, keep warm.
- Add white wine, garlic, onion, spices and Worcestershire sauce to skillet, stir constantly.
- Once onion and garlic are soft, add beef broth and place pork chops in skillet.
- Cook on medium low for approximately 30 minutes covered.
- Add asparagus and mushrooms, cover and cook 8-10 minutes.
- Thicken sauce with cornstarch and serve over egg noodles or rice.
- If you need more liquid, add more beef broth or wine to sauce.
A lot of chopping involved and I found the prep time to be a little on the long side and the amount of time you cook for should be upped by ten minutes because of the veggies. This aside, it is a low calorie version of what I would call comfort food. I was very pleased with the outcome and will be making it again in the future.
This was without doubt 5*!! The sauce is marvelous, we used it over the pork chops and over potatoes, cooked in tinfoil with walla walla onions. I didn't realize until too late that I was out of beef broth, so had to use chicken broth, the only other change I made was the shallots, had none, so used some of the walla walla onions. Prep time was good and the cooking time was perfect! The asparagus was tender crisp, all of it was just sooooooo good! a real taste treat and DH said to make sure this one was put into my hard copy, it is a keeper!! Thanks for posting CBettiga!!
The sauce in this dish has EXCELLENT flavor! We will definitely be making this one again. We used only 2 pork chops (for 2 people) and only had a little of the sauce left over. Our 'bunch' of asparagus was 1 lb. and instead of adding it to the sauce, we microwaved it on high for 5 minutes until it was tender-crisp and served it as a side dish. We served the sauce over egg noodles, as suggested. Thanks CB! BTW, it DID only take 15 minutes to prepare! M&Mers
