Pork Chops with Mushroom Dijon Sauce

This low carb recipe is pretty awesome.  If you have an appropriately sized skillet (I like cast iron for this), the pork chops will braise and remain tender and juicy.  You still need to keep an eye on them and let them just barely simmer when cooking.   Boil them and you get shoe leather, so keep an eye on the pan.

Amount  Measure       Ingredient — Preparation Method
——–  ————  ——————————–
4               each  pork chops — Center cut, 1/2″ thick minimum
1         tablespoon  butter
1         tablespoon  cooking oil
1           teaspoon  black pepper
1           teaspoon  salt
1/4           cup  minced onion
1/2           cup  white wine
3/4           cup  chicken stock
1/2           cup  half and half — reduced fat will not work. Separates in wine. Use full fat.
4             ounces  mushrooms — sliced
1 1/2    tablespoons  Dijon mustard
1         tablespoon  parsley

Melt butter, add oil over med high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper.  Brown chops, about 3-4 min per side.  Take out the chops and set aside.

Take out the chops and pour off excess fat.  Fry onions and sliced mushrooms.  Add wine and bring to boil, should be almost immediately in a hot pan.Add stock and simmer. Put the chops back in  and cook about 10-20 minutes depending on thickness. Turn over half way through.  Do not boil the chops.  The pan should be just barely at a simmer and the chops should not be covered in liquid (you’re braising them).

When the chops are done, take them off and cover with foil.  Boil sauce till reduced by half and add the half and half slowly and boil for a couple minutes.  Mix mustard with the parsley and then blend into the sauce.

Serve sauce on the pork chops.

Taste is not far off a marsala wine dish if you use a sweet wine.
