These pork chops are so easy to make and have amazing flavor! I threw this recipe together a few years ago, but it is a very popular way that a lot of people make their pork chops. The gravy that it makes is delicious and goes great with mashed potatoes. I even ate mine the next day in sandwich form! Try these out – they are at the top of my simple and favorites list.
- 4 pork chops
- Olive oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 4 or 5 large mushrooms, chopped
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- ½ can milk
- ½ can white wine (optional)
The white wine is a very optional addition to this dish. I think it adds just a touch of flavor that makes these pork chops that much more amazing. I have made it plenty of times without the white wine though and they are still delicious! I would highly suggest using very little salt, even if you buy the reduced sodium cream of mushroom soup. Taste the sauce near the end of the recipe and see if you need to add more.
Heat up a large skillet to about medium or medium high. Season your pork chops with just a little bit of salt and pepper. I added a little bit of herbs to my pork chops here – feel free to spice them up how you like. Add a little bit of olive oil and your pork chops to the skillet. Brown them on both sides.
Next, you want to quickly sauté the onion and mushrooms. I normally take my pork chops out and set them on a plate while I do this, but you don’t have to. Let your mushrooms and onion cook for about a minute or so.
Add in your pork chops if you took them out and pour your cream of mushroom soup, milk and wine over your pork chops. Make sure everything is combined and the pork chops are well coated.
Cover your skillet and lower your heat to medium-low. Simmer this for about 30 minutes. Check it occasionally to see how your sauce is doing. It should thicken up a bit. I also suggest tasting it toward the end of the cook time and adding salt or pepper if needed.
Serve your pork chops with this awesome mushroom and onion gravy. This meal is a favorite of mine. Pretty sure I will never stop making it!
