Directions

1. To make the garlic pork chops: Combine paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Pat the pork chops dry with kitchen paper then season generously with the spice mix. Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high until butter is melted.

2. Sear the pork chops for 3-5 minutes per side until well browned on both sides. Transfer the pork chops to a warm plate and set aside. 

3. In the same skillet, add the mushrooms and stir fry until golden brown, scraping up any bits leftover from the chops.

4. Add garlic, parsley and Italian seasoning then stir fry for another 30 seconds before pouring in the broth. Add the cream, give a good stir then allow simmering for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened and adjust seasoning if needed.

5. Place pork chops and their juices back into the sauce and allow to simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked to your liking. Garnish with remaining fresh parsley and serve the garlic pork chops in creamy mushroom sauce immediately with cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, or pasta. Enjoy!

How to cook pork chops recipe tips

  • Buy bone-in pork chops when you can: The bone has some fat around that keeps the meat tender and juicy, plus it helps prevent the pork chops from overcooking. On the other side, boneless pork chops tend to be drier and easier to overcook.
  • Take the pork chops out of your refrigerator about 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. The meat will cook more evenly throughout when you bring it at room temperature.
  • Rest the meat after cooking pork chops: A quick rest period of five minutes allows the juices to flow back through the meat and make it more tender. You can cover the pork chops with a shallow plate or loosely tent with foil.

How to tell when pork is done?

Pork is done when an internal thermometer reads 145ºF (63ºC), per the recommendation of the USDA. Cooking time may vary depending on how thick the pork chops are. If the pork chops don’t have the same thickness, you can remove the thinner one first and let the others finish cooking.

What to serve with the pork chops?

This pork recipe goes well with pretty much anything: potatoes, pasta, or if you’re on a low carb diet, zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, or other veggies.

How and how long to keep the pork chops leftovers?

You can keep the pork chops leftover for 2 days in the refrigerator, in an airtight container. Reheat gently in the microwave or covered in the oven for 5 minutes, adding a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.

    This did not work for us. 1.5 cups of cream is just too much. It did not thicken. The seasoning was great but the overall sauce was just too much and too runny. Used boneless pork chops and cooked to exact time stated (on the lesser side) and they were like shoe leather. Other than using some sauce on cauliflower rice, I had to throw the whole thing away.

    Love the seasoning! How could I make this recipe in a slow cooker?

    Thanks for the recipe! I substituted 1/2 can of cream of chicken soup instead, since I don't like mushrooms, and I also added a little cajun seasoning for extra depth of flavor. NOTE: For super tender bone-in pork chops, brown then cover tightly and simmer for 40 minutes!! They will be falling-off-the bone tender. My mom and grandma always made them this way, I grew up eating the most tender pork chops, so I can't understand these "don't overcook!" warnings. I don't buy boneless, so I can't speak to that, but for bone-in tender chops, you will not even need a knife! Trust me! Falling. Off. The bone. 40-min. simmer, tightly covered! My 13-year old son just devoured TWO of them. Yummy recipe... thank you :)

    We did 1 1/2 times the recipe. Absolutely delicious. We’ll at least double the mushrooms next time - and there’ll definitely be a next time.
