How to Make Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce
Another reason why I love this recipe it’s because it is so easy to prepare without needing any cooking skills. Here is what you’ll have to do:
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and sear the pork chops in olive oil and butter on both sides. Remember to season the chops with salt, pepper, and paprika.
- Once the pork chops are cooked on both sides, remove them from the heat and keep them warm.
- In the same pan, sauté the onions until fragrant and translucent, then add garlic.
- Add the mushrooms and sauté for a few more minutes.
- Pour in reduced-sodium chicken soup and whipping cream. Mix and simmer for a few minutes until the sauce thickens. Taste and season with dried thyme.
- Return the chops, cover with the creamy mushroom sauce, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for a few minutes until the meat is cooked and the sauce is incredibly creamy.
- Fridge: It’s best to keep leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

How To Substitute For Boneless Pork Chops?
This recipe is perfect for boneless pork chops too. If you want to use boneless pork chops, reduce the cooking time to about 2-3 minutes per side. This depends on how thick your meat is.
You’ll know the pork is cooked through and safe to the east if a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part reads 145F.
What Type Of Mushrooms Should I Use For This Recipe?
Feel free to use any mushrooms you want. White, brown, cremini, and portobello mushrooms are great for this recipe. Sliced mushrooms from cans can also be used.
Are Pork Chops Keto?
Yes, pork chops are completely keto-friendly and can be cooked in various ways, including the Instant Pot, a slow cooker, in the oven, on the and even grilled or baked.
Bone-in pork chops are a staple protein in our house, and I always choose the meat with the most fat. It’s one of the most affordable meat choices and super flavorful if cooked right.
How To Choose The Perfect Pork Chops
When buying pork chops, make sure you are buying the freshest ones. To check that, you will have to poke them, and if they are fresh, they have to be firmer with a pinkish-reddish tint.
Dark spots on the fat or dark areas around the bones can identify older chops. Also, try to purchase your chops from a reliable butcher if possible.
