Today I want to share one of my all-time favorite recipes – Cream of Mushroom with Pork Chops. This hearty and flavorful dish is a perfect comfort food that never fails to satisfy. The creamy mushroom sauce complements the tender and juicy pork chops beautifully, creating a dish that is sure to impress your family and friends.


  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by seasoning the pork chops with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  2. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side until they are nicely browned and cooked through. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set them aside.
  3. In the same skillet, melt butter and sauté the onion and garlic until they are softened and aromatic.
  4. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they are golden brown and tender.
  5. Pour in the cream of mushroom soup and chicken broth, stirring to combine. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes.
  6. Stir in the heavy cream and dried thyme, then return the pork chops to the skillet, spooning the creamy mushroom sauce over them. Let the pork chops simmer in the sauce for an additional 5-7 minutes until everything is heated through and the flavors have melded together.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve the pork chops with a generous ladle of the cream of mushroom sauce.

This dish is best served over a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes or with a side of buttery egg noodles. The tender pork chops paired with the luscious cream of mushroom sauce will have everyone coming back for seconds.

Personal Commentary:

For me, this recipe holds a special place in my heart as it is one of the first dishes I learned to cook from scratch. The aroma of the onions and garlic sizzling in the skillet always brings me back to my earliest days in the kitchen. It’s a dish that never fails to evoke a sense of warmth and comfort, making it perfect for both weeknight dinners and special occasions.

I love experimenting with different types of mushrooms to add depth of flavor to the sauce. Whether it’s shiitake, oyster, or porcini, each variety lends its own unique taste to the dish. Additionally, I often sprinkle a pinch of smoked paprika over the pork chops for a subtle smokiness that elevates the overall flavor profile.


If you’re looking for a dish that is both simple to make and incredibly satisfying, this Cream of Mushroom with Pork Chops recipe is a must-try. It’s a timeless classic that never goes out of style, and I hope it brings as much joy to your table as it has to mine. Happy cooking!
