I love making smothered pork chops with mushroom soup. It’s a classic dish that’s perfect for a cozy family dinner or a special weekend meal. The combination of tender pork chops smothered in a creamy mushroom sauce is just irresistible. If you’re a fan of rich and hearty flavors, you’re in for a treat with this recipe.
- 4 bone-in pork chops
- 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
- 1 onion, sliced
- 8 oz of fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
First, season the pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until they are nicely browned on both sides. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set them aside.
In the same skillet, add the sliced onions and mushrooms. Sauté them until they are tender and caramelized. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
Next, pour in the cream of mushroom soup and chicken broth. Stir everything together until well combined. Return the pork chops to the skillet, making sure they are submerged in the mushroom sauce.
Cover the skillet with a lid and let the pork chops simmer in the mushroom sauce for about 25-30 minutes, or until they are cooked through and tender.
Once the pork chops are done, remove them from the skillet and place them on a serving platter. Spoon the mushroom sauce over the pork chops, and they are ready to be enjoyed!
