Oh My WORD! I am SO happy with the way this meal came out. Inspired by a mushroom craving (mom is nodding her head in disbelief as I used to LOATHE mushrooms) I defrosted some boneless pork chops and and went to town. Honesty, I didn’t exactly know what I was going to do. I just started chopping, searing and mashing.
The husband looked remotely interested because I told him we’d be having mashed potatoes. As long as there’s mashed potatoes, gravy and some kind of meat he’s happy. So I knew he’d like this and he did. The toddler did too! Although I skipped the mushrooms on his plate. Glad I did, he ate everything else. :)
- 4 boneless pork loin chops about 4 oz each
- 1/2 sweet onion diced
- 10 oz package of mushrooms sliced
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar or applesauce
- 1 cup of your favorite broth (chicken, beef, vegetable)
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp whole wheat flour
- non-stick cooking spray
- Kosher Salt & Pepper
Lay the pork chops on a sheet of saran wrap. Top with another sheet and bang away! You want to thin the pork out to 1/4 -1/2 inch. Similar to the way we did it for the Naked Chicken Parm Idea (click to see pictures.)
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick spray. Season both sides of the pork with a bit of a Kosher Salt and Pepper. Once the pan is hot add the chop. Don’t crowd the pan, do them in batches if you have to. Flip after 2-3 minutes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Remove the pork from the skillet and set aside.
Lower the heat to medium and spray the skillet with a bit more spray and add the onion. Stir and add the mushrooms and garlic. Let them cook down a bit, maybe a minute or two. Add the apple cider vinegar. Stir.
While the mushrooms are cooking, whisk the broth, worcestershire sauce and flour. Add to the pan, bring to a boil. Put the chops back in, cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes until ready to serve.
As I said I served mine with my own creamy mash potatoes, which honestly was perfect but you could do noodles or even brown rice I suppose. So for the nutritional info I’ll stick with just the pork, you can add what you decide to pair it with.
