Can I make it with other meat cuts?

For this recipe, I like using thicker chops with nice marbling. Thin and lean chops tend to dry out due to the sear and simmer. I recommend thick cuts of pork steak so you end up with juicy, tender meat that beautifully absorbs the sauce.

Also, if you’d like another type of protein, swapping this out with steak or chicken works as well. I’ve got this fantastic Creamy Parmesan Mushroom Chicken you should try out!

How to Substitute for Bone-in Pork Chops:

I prefer to make this recipe with bone-in chops because they are more flavorful. However, you can easily make it with boneless pork chops or even chicken breasts. If you want to go with boneless meat, then cook for an additional 2-3 minutes longer per side, depending on the thickness of the meat.

Just remember to check the doneness using a meat thermometer. The internal reading of the thickest part should read 145°F. This is the recommended safe temperature to consume pork.

What kind of mushrooms is best to use?

You can use any fresh white or brown mushrooms. For meatier flavor, I like using a mix of cremini and white mushrooms.

In addition, don’t slice the mushrooms too thin so they hold up during cooking and soak up the sauce. Plus, hearty pieces add a nice texture to this dish.  

How to make the pork chops tender?

It all starts with the cut. Thick, marbled chops are best. Pay attention to the cooking times in the recipe to avoid drying out the meat. Make sure to cover the meat with the mushroom gravy while simmering to keep it moist.

You can also use a meat mallet to tenderize the meat further. Just a few whacks are enough. Remember to do it evenly.

Recipe Tips:

  • You can wilt some chard or spinach at the end.
  • For extra flavor, use freshly minced garlic. Adjust the garlic based on your preference. 
  • For the juiciest results, choose cuts with extra marbling. Either bone-in or boneless is fine. But try to avoid lean center cuts.
  • Because this is a very quick recipe, I strongly recommend prepping everything before you begin cooking.
  • Also, don’t wash or use a new pan! Those brown bits left from searing the meat are called fond and have a massive impact on the sauce.
  • If you don’t have parsley, some fresh thyme is a tasty substitute.
  • You can use vegetable broth if you prefer.
  • Remember to sear the meat in butter, because butter adds richness, while oil keeps it from burning.
  • If you must use thinner cuts, please adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • This dish is rich, so serving them with simple sides like steamed vegetables balances it out.
  • For some heat, feel free to sprinkle some red pepper flakes to taste.

We love pork chops. I typically pan fry them in butter and season with garlic and seasoned salt. Then devour them. Ill have to give this recipe a try. It looks delicous.


Cherise Kachelmuss

I bet this is amazing! I am not big into mushrooms but my husband is and I don't mind picking around them.



No. All cuts of pork should have an internal temp of 145. Let rest for a few minutes, of course.

I think my pork chops were a little too thick. They came out tasty but not terribly tender. The sauce however is scrumptious. I am allergic to poultry, so I substituted white wine for the chicken broth. Works!
