My hubby works late most nights so when he comes home If I haven’t had something slow cooking and can be ready whenever he walks through the door I need to come up with something that can be cooked off quickly. An easy dinner that can be cooked within 30 minutes is desirable. Otherwise, I’m afraid he could fall asleep while he’s eating. LoL.
He’s been working all hours for ages now, I hope his bosses appreciate what he does. He loved this recipe; you can make so many variations. It’s quick and easy to prepare, and there aren’t too many ingredients.
I’ve served it on a bed of mash but what you didn’t see is, I added some greens to the plate. I knew they’d look messy once I plated up, so I left them off for the photo ahahaaaa. If I had some broccolini rather than broccoli, then It would have been there.
Here Are Some Pork Chop Variations?
Well, you could swap out any of the herbs to make a change. You could change the cream to coconut milk. What about adding a handful of baby spinach to the sauce a few minutes before removing from the heat, so it gently wilts. I could go on and on with this easy recipe but I’m sure you get the picture.
- 2 pork chops, bone in for best flavour
- Salt and pepper, to season
- 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
- 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, divided
- 1 cup sliced brown mushrooms
- 1 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley, divided
- 1 tsp fresh chopped sage
- 1-2 cloves garlic crushed
- ½ cup cream
- Remove the chops from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature if you have time.
- Rub the chops liberally with oil and season with a chefs pinch of salt.
- Place a frying pan on the stove and set to medium-high heat, once hot add the chops, oil and butter and sear till they're golden brown and cooked through, transfer to a warm plate and set aside.
- Add the mushrooms to the pan and fry in the pan juices. Cook for a couple of minutes over medium-high heat. If you can brown the mushrooms a little adding the garlic around halfway through you won't burn your garlic making it bitter.
- Add the cream deglazing the pan then adding the parsley, sage and pepper, simmer gently for around 3 - 4 minutes for the sauce to thicken a little then add back the chops.
- Allow to heat through. Serve immediately
- Servings: 2
- Degree of Difficulty: Very easy
