Valentines is just around the corner. This year we plan to keep it simple. I am planning on cooking my husband’s favourite, pork chops in garlic mushroom sauce and pairing it with a simple side salad with our fave bottle of wine. Throw this amazing dish together in less than thirty minutes using just simple ingredients for a filling weeknight dinner or date night.
2 lbs. boneless pork chops
1 (8 oz.) package sliced fresh mushrooms
2 c. beef broth
¼ c. butter, divided
1 tsp Dijon mustard
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
½ tsp paprika
1 pinch kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
How to make Pork Chops in Garlic Mushroom Sauce
Step 1: Sprinkle all sides of the pork chops with paprika, salt, and pepper.
Step 2: Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the pork chops to the skillet and sear for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side until golden brown and no longer pink. Set the pork chops aside when done.
Step 3: In the same skillet, melt the rest of the butter over medium-high heat. Now, add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes until golden and the excess moisture has evaporated. Now, add the garlic and mustard. Continue to cook for another minute until the garlic is fragrant.
Step 4: To the skillet, add the flour, whisking until the lumps are gone. Then, gradually add in the beef broth, stirring until combined. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Adjust the heat to medium and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thickened.
Step 6: Place the pork chops back into the skillet and continue to cook for a minute more until heated through.
Step 7: When done, serve immediately. Enjoy!
