1hr 20mins




  • Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • In a shallow bowl combine the flour with the next 5 spices (remove 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture and set aside).
  • Coat the pork chops in the flour mixture one at a time then place onto a plate.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat melt the butter with oil; add in the pork chops and brown on both sides then transfer to prepared baking dish.
  • In the same skillet add in mushrooms and saute until golden; sprinkle over the pork chops.
  • To the skillet add in onion and bell pepper; saute until softened.
  • Add in garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add in the reserved 3 tablespoons flour mixture and stir for 1 minute.
  • Stir in 2 cups half and half cream or milk; bring to a boil and stir for 2 minutes or until smooth and bubbly.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in 2 tablespoons lemon juice (at this point you may season the gravy with more black pepper to taste).
  • Pour the sauce over the chops and mushrooms; using a fork lift the chops slightly to allow the gravy to flow underneath.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for about 50-60 minutes (do not cover tightly you will need to allow some air to flow out while cooking).

  1. Made this for dinner last night, and they were hands down the best pork chops I've ever eaten! Will definitely save this one for repeat use! Thanks Kittencal!
  2. These were delicious. An absolute winner! Used lime juice rather than lemon & came out perfect. The sauce made the difference. Will definitely be repeating this! :-)
  3. We enjoyed this. I'm not sure I liked the green pepper in the gravy but it was a different twist on pork chops which was nice.
  4. I made this recipe for dinner tonight. It was soooo good! My husband loves pork chops and I have been hoping to find a new recipe to make. He said he would eat this again and again. I followed the recipe to the "T". I served it with roasted small potatoes tossed with olive oil, garlic and Italian seasonings with steamed broccoli Outstanding!! Thank you for this one Kittencal! A keeper!
  5. When I was making this recipe, the amount of minced garlic to use was not listed, so I cut up two cloves and per the directions sauteed them for two minutes after the onions had softened. However, the sauce turned out a little bland, so maybe I should have added more. The pork chops were nice and tender, and the lemony-mushroom flavor went great with the chops!
