    smashmac's Note:

    This originally came from Real Simple Magazine and lends itself well to improvisations. On the night I made it I realized I did not have any mushrooms so I left those out. My husband thought it was wonderful.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 tablespoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    • 4 pork chops (originally called for "pork rib chops" I used boneless center cut chops)
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon butter (I actually used Pam spray for oil and butter)
    • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

    Mushroom Sauce


    1. 1
      For the chops:.
    2. 2
      Mix salt, paprika and pepper in a small bowl, rub onto chops.
    3. 3
      Heat oil& butter (or Pam) in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Brown chops 3 minutes per side.
    5. 5
      Cover, reduce to medium and cook until inside is just pink and juices run clear when pricked, about 10 mins; flip chops halfway thorough.
    6. 6
      (Since I was using very thick chops I started them off in the pan as directed and finished them in the microwave.) Serve with Mushroom Sauce and lemon wedges.
    7. 7
      Mushroom Sauce.
    8. 8
      Melt butter over medium heat.
    9. 9
      Add onion and garlic, saute until translucent, about 4 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add mushrooms and cook until they release their liquid and begin to brown, about 10 minutes.
    11. 11
      (I had actually planned to use canned mushroom slices and wouldn't have cooked it 10 miutes).
    12. 12
      Add thyme, zest and wine/sherry, simmer until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
    13. 13
      Stir in cream, salt and pepper, simmer until lightly coats back of spoon.
    14. 14
      (Since the fat free half& half doesn't thicken that well, I used less liquid to begin with, and I always turn off the pan before adding the half& half.) Prep time and cook time is combined for both.
    15. 15
      Most of the chop cook time was pretty passive, but the sauce was more active.

      This recipe is familiar to my Chicken in Tarragon Cream Sauce recipe. I never thought of using pork with this sauce. I used white wine and the heavy cream. I also juiced the lemon I used for the zest into the sauce. Served this dish with broccoli and a whole grain wild rice (Lundberg's Wild Rice). Great recipe!

      Outstanding !!! I only made a couple of changes.....used skim milk instead of cream to keep the calories and cholesterol I had to thicken the sauce with a bit of cornstarch at the end. But the taste was wonderful!! Thanks for the keeper !

      I also tried this recipe from Real Simple magazine. My family loves it. I don't like thick pieces of pork, so I use thin sliced chops and they cook in just a few minutes. I usually don't have white wine on hand, so I just leave it out and the sauce still tastes great. In order to cut down on the salt content, I use home-made chicken broth that I make with very little salt. We like to serve it with mashed potatoes and use some of the sauce for the potatoes (there will be plenty.)
