Ingredients
For Steaks:
  • 4 pork chops, bone in or boneless (about 1-inch thick)
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 6 garlic cloves lightly crushed with the back of a knife, divided
  • 6-8 thyme sprigs, divided (or rosemary or parsley)
For Mushroom Sauce:
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (optional -- substitute with chicken broth)
  • 1 cup sliced brown mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat cream or half and half, (heavy cream or evaporated milk)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chopped thyme
Instructions
  1. Season chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil and butter in a frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat until butter is melted.

  2. When pan is hot, sear chops for about 5 minutes per side until golden browned and the centre is no longer bright pink. Transfer to a warm plate. Set aside.

  3. Add the mushrooms to the buttery juices in the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes over medium heat. When mushrooms are browned, add the crushed garlic and sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant. 

  4. Pour in the wine (or broth) and cook until liquid has reduced by half (about 3 minutes). Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Add the herbs and season with salt and pepper, to your taste.

  5. Add the chops back into the sauce, allow to simmer for a minute to heat through. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Optional add-ins for the creamy sauce:  1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, 1-2 teaspoons brandy or bourbon, 1/4 cup of white wine (reduce first before adding the cream), peppercorns, finely chopped thyme or finely chopped rosemary)
