The combination of tender pork chops smothered in a rich and flavorful mushroom gravy is simply irresistible. Let’s dive deeper into this mouthwatering recipe and explore how to create this comforting dish at home.


  • 4 pork chops
  • 2 cups of sliced mushrooms (cremini or button mushrooms work well)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Fresh thyme, salt, and pepper to taste


  1. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and sear the pork chops until they are golden brown on both sides. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, melt the butter and add the chopped onions and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent.
  3. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they are golden and tender.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the mushroom mixture and stir to combine, cooking for a few minutes to get rid of the raw flour taste.
  5. Slowly pour in the chicken or vegetable broth while stirring to avoid lumps. Let the mixture simmer and thicken.
  6. Pour in the heavy cream and add fresh thyme. Stir the gravy and let it simmer until it reaches your desired consistency.
  7. Return the seared pork chops to the skillet, coating them with the mushroom gravy. Let them simmer in the gravy until they are cooked through.
  8. Once the pork chops are cooked, transfer them to a serving plate and spoon the mushroom gravy over the top.

This pork chop mushroom gravy pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes, creamy polenta, or a side of buttered egg noodles. The tender pork chops smothered in the rich and creamy mushroom gravy are a true comfort food delight. The earthy flavor of the mushrooms combined with the savory goodness of the pork chops creates a dish that is both hearty and satisfying. Whether it’s for a cozy family dinner or a special gathering, this recipe never fails to impress.
