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.

    I thought this was FABULOUS! I added some chopped sun-dried tomatoes at the very end & a bit of cream cheese to thicken the sauce. Served over cauliflower rice. Will definitely be making this again.

    So easy, so delicious. My spouse really doesn’t like “sauces” on his meat but ate 2 of these with gravy over mashed potatoes! Thickened the gravy with a bit of slurry but that’s just a personal preference.

    Great recipe!!! Easy to make and tastes delicious. The only thing I was unable to find brown mushrooms. I use regular and worked just as well.

    This was sooo delicious! The flavors were excellent. Our chops were thick, so the cooking time was longer, and we also used some Wondra to thicken the sauce after we took the chops out right before serving. We will definitely make this again!

    Added some white wine and the juices from the resting chops to the sauce. Served it with steamed broccoli and rice with the sauce. Very yummy.

    This was so delicious. It came out exactly like the picture. I was afraid the thick chops would be tough put they were so tinder and juice and the sauce so flavorful. My whole family loved it. I will make this over and over again.

    This was a delicious hubby came in and sampled the pork chops and told me they were goood. That was before the sauce. It smelled great and tasted yummy. Made cauliflower rice w/ garlic and put some of the sauce on top of it. Will be making this again.👍🏻❤️

  • Sarah Garland

    2021-02-01 10:41:33

    I love this recipe! I add about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese at the very end to thicken it, and it makes it even more yummy!! And don’t forget the parsley.

    Amazing combo of flavours!! I was late starting this dish due to work... so I browned the thick chops and put them in the Instant pot. Cooked mushrooms and sauce in the frypan and added that to the pork chops. Pressure cooked it for 10 min. Sauce needed thickening, so I removed the meat, turned instant pot on sauté, added a bit of xanthum gum to thicken, and then put the chops back in. Very moist and tender and oh so yummy! My husband told me I could make that again! I used more garlic in the sauce then it called for...

  • Nessa C

    Great yummy recipe! Used less broth and heavy cream cause I wanted my sauce to be thick but still drippy, I added some corn starch to thicken it cause there was still too much liquid! Still a great recipe, tweak as needed!

  • Laura Ryder

    This was amazing my husband and my kids loved kt

  • Jennifer

    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.

  • Nicole

    2020-12-21 12:50:50

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

  • Suzanne

    2020-12-02 18:29:54

    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.

    Love this recipe but the sauce never thickens up! Still very yummy
