Ingredients & Substitutions

Pork Chops: Start with seasoned thick-cut boneless pork chops, featuring a delicious mix of paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. We love boneless pork chops in this recipe, but you could also substitute bone-in pork chops.

Creamy Mushroom Sauce: We used white mushrooms, but you can feel free to explore alternatives like cremini, baby bella, or shiitake. The creamy base is achieved by combining heavy cream with chicken broth. Adjust the thickness according to your own preference by adding additional broth or cream.

The Importance of Searing

Unlock additional layers of flavor and texture by taking the time to sear your pork chops. This step not only enhances taste but also ensures the retention of all of those delicious pork juices. Pork Chops do a nice job of signaling you when they are ready. Simply let them rest, undisturbed, for about 5-6 minutes until the pork naturally releases from the pan.

Ingredients

PORK CHOPS

  • 4 thick-cut boneless pork chops
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

MUSHROOM SAUCE

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely minced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
  • Season them evenly with paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper
  • Add oil and butter to a medium cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Sear the seasoned pork chops for about 5-6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

MUSHROOM SAUCE

  • Reduce the pan heat to medium-low and melt butter.
  • Sauté the onions and mushrooms in the butter, scraping up the browned bits as you go. Continue to saute, stirring frequently, for about 9-10 minutes, or until the onions have softened and the mushrooms released all of thier liquid.

  • Pour in the heavy cream, broth, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine.
