I threw this dinner together one night with items that I had on hand. It turned out to be a lovely dinner that was appreciated by all. Herbes De Provence is a wonderful spice that can liven up chicken, salad, potatoes, and veggies. It is a staple in my kitchen, and an important ingredient in this recipe, to really liven up the green beans. Please note that, even though this recipe normally serves two, you could easily throw in four pork loin chops. Please enjoy!

Oh so yummy! I didn't use fresh mushrooms(only had canned) and I also added a bit more salt. Mmmm....
I actually only did the pork chop part of this recipe. The spices were a little too strong for my tastes but okay with DH. The gravy was delish. I felt that the 20 minutes simmer time was too long and toughened the chops. Next time I would only simmer about 10 minutes and I think they would be perfect. Thanks for sharing. Tweeky
