Ingredients Needed

Ingredients needed to make pork chops with cream of mushroom soup laid out on the counter.
  • Pork Chops: this recipe can be made with both bone-in or boneless chops.
  • Oil & Butter: using a combination gives a buttery flavoring without burning the butter when searing the pork.
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Onion, Paprika: a simple spice blend to season the pork when cooking.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: use a store-bought canned soup, an organic canned version, or make your own homemade cream of mushroom soup substitute.
  • Mushrooms: add even more savory flavoring by using fresh mushrooms also.
  • Milk: loosens up the cream of mushroom soup to create a thinner sauce.
  • White Wine: used to deglaze the pan plus it adds flavor to the sauce. If preferred you can substitute the wine for chicken broth.
  • Garlic: used for flavor
  • Herbs: fresh parsley and thyme for flavor. Substitute with dry herbs if needed or you can swap out the herbs and use rosemary or another herb of your choice.

How to Make Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce

  1. Prepare the pork chops by letting them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, then pat dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle a simple seasoning blend of salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika evenly over the pork chops.

  2. Add the pork chops back into the sauce, spooning some of the sauce on top. Bring to a simmer, and allow to cook to ensure pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

Internal Temperature

Pork is safe to eat when it reaches an internal temperature of 145F. Avoid overcooking to prevent tough meat.

Storage Information

  • Storage: store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
  • Freezing: freezing can alter the texture of the sauce, I would recommend not freezing this recipe.
  • Reheating: place pork chops and sauce in a covered skillet and heat over low heat for 8-10 minutes until warmed through.
