A Taste of France: Unforgettable Pork Chops with Creamy Mushroom Sauce


Ingredients

  • 20g (0.7 oz) butter
  • 500g (18 oz) pork chops
  • 10g (0.4 oz) black pepper
  • 10g (0.4 oz) salt
  • 10g (0.4 oz) garlic, minced
  • 20g (0.7 oz) flour
  • 200g (7.1 oz) brown mushrooms, sliced
  • 300ml (10 fl oz) chicken broth
  • 5g (0.2 oz) black pepper
  • 10g (0.4 oz) salt
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 20g (0.7 oz) parsley, chopped (optional)


Instructions

  1. Prep the Chops: Season the pork chops generously with black pepper and salt.

  2. Searing Perfection: Heat a pan over medium heat with the butter. Once melted, add the pork chops and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  3. Flavorful Foundation: Sauté the chopped onion in the same pan until softened. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute, releasing the fragrant aroma.

  4. Mushrooms Take Center Stage: Toss in the sliced brown mushrooms and cook until golden brown and tender.

  5. Building the Sauce: Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms and onions, stirring to create a roux. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

  6. Seasoning Symphony: Season the sauce with black pepper and salt, bringing it to a simmer. Reduce heat and let the sauce thicken slightly.

  7. Grand Finale: Return the cooked pork chops to the pan and spoon the creamy mushroom sauce over them. Let them simmer for a few minutes to warm through.

  8. Fresh Finish: Garnish with chopped parsley for a pop of color and freshness (optional).

Serve this decadent dish with your favorite sides, like mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a simple salad. Every bite will transport you to a charming Parisian bistro, filled with the warmth of French comfort food.
