Pork Chops with Button Mushrooms

Author: Canadian Living

There's no need for cream in this mushroom sauce because the flavourful stock-based sauce gets its slight thickness from the flour used to coat the chops. Serve with mashed potatoes and peas to provide vitamins A and C, folate, potassium, protein and fibre.

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (1-1/2 lb/750 g)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups button mushrooms
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2/3 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon rind grated
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped

Method

Trim fat from chops. In large plastic bag, combine flour, thyme, salt and pepper; add chops and shake to coat. Reserve remaining flour mixture.

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry chops until golden and just a hint of pink remains inside, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate.

Drain off any fat in pan. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic; cook until no liquid remains, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved flour mixture; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in chicken stock, 2/3 cup (150 mL) water, lemon rind and juice, and Worcestershire sauce, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan.

Return pork and any accumulated juices to pan; simmer until sauce is thickened enough to coat back of spoon, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
