Recipe for Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce

We love drowning our crispy pan seared pork chops in sauce, all type of sauce and any sauce or gravy that’s loaded with flavor. That’s why our test kitchen loves this recipe. Previously, we shared an excellent milk braised pork chop with mustard sauce and it was a hit. Today, it’s all about our one pork pork chops in creamy garlic mushroom sauce. It started with another batch of our easy mushroom gravy and then we started to go crazy. We doused this creamy garlic mushroom sauce on chicken and then decided we were craving pork.

Why is This Our Best Skillet Pork Chop Recipe?

We love this version of the sauce with the pork because we added mustard to it. That’s the secret ingredient! The combination of mustard and earthy mushrooms in this rich sauce is a great balance. The mustard adds a nice tang to break up the richness a bit, yet this sauce is loaded with mushroom flavor and texture. Sure you can call it a garlic mushroom sauce or a garlic mushroom gravy recipe. It really doesn’t matter because you can control how thick you want your sauce to be.

Tips for How to Make Skillet Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy Sauce

  • Pork chops vary in thickness so cooking times will differ. Using a digital thermometer, the internal temperature should be 145F.
  • Make sure to get a good sear on the pork chops. Your pan needs to be hot enough to get that sear.
  • Add a touch more flour for a thicker consistency and you’ll have an outstanding mushroom sauce to bathe your pork chops in.
  • Save the extra sauce! They’re perfect to pour over mashed potatoes.
  • It’s definitely a favorite and easy pork chop recipe for those days that you don’t have time to prep a ton of ingredients but still want a great home cooked meal of the family. Enjoy!
