Pork Chops and Mushrooms in a White Wine Sauce

I think I’m dead.

No, no I’m sure of it. Because after my face turned into an anteater and vacuumed up a trough of this white wine sauce last night, I passed on and went to a better place.

But it’s cool. I’m not going to make you do anything with me involving wet clay.

When I found this recipe last week over on Steamy Kitchen, I lost it. Absolutely lost it. Mushrooms, onions, butter, white wine, cream?

Let me say that again – WHITE WINE AND CREAM.


Ugh. I’m almost mad at myself for not having the self control to save some sauce to pour into my coffee this morning.

Oh stop looking at me that way.

I willy nillly notheth with this recipe. It was straight up perfection and I would punch myself in the face for just one more slurp.

Pork Chops and Mushrooms in a White Wine Sauce:

(Recipe by Steamy Kitchen)

* p.s. One more thing! Gourmet Live apparently likes me. You should check it. (squeal!)

What it took for 2:

* 2 boneless pork chops
* 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
* 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
* 1 yellow onion, finely sliced
* 2 Tbs. butter
* 1/2 cup dry white wine
* 1/4 cup heavy cream
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high.

Rub the oil on both sides of each pork chop and season with salt and pepper. Sear in the skillet for 2 minutes on one side; flip and sear an additional 2 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Back in the skillet, melt the butter, then add the mushrooms and onions. Saute for a good 5 minutes. Smell that. uhmugush.

Pour in the wine; cook for 1 minute. Then pour in the cream. Stir, stir. Goodness gracious.

Snuggle the chops (and their juices!) back in the skillet with everything, cover and cook 10 more minutes.

Serve each pork chop on a plate and just DRENCH it with the sauce, mushrooms and onions. Garnish with parsley.

Serve with a salad, bread sticks, whatevs. Just make this.

    Both you and Jessica are all over the shrooms today. I don't think mushrooms exist down here. But cookie butter spread does. LOL Your food sounds great!

    I've been thinking about making this for a week. I always dream about the day that I can add white wine mushroom cream sauce to my coffee without getting weird looks.

    Don't mind if I do.

    This looks so good... and so elegant! Bev, you're going FANCY on us. I would definitely pay $24 in a restaurant for that! Ha! (I'm. kinda. being. serious. though.) Congrats on the Gourmet feature. WE LOVED YOU FIRST. xo.
  17. Jenny December 21, 2011 at 9:07 pm #
    If I know you as well as I do, there wouldn't be enough coffee in the mug to pour this stuff into. Might as well just drink it straight! :) Looks yum. Anything with white wine and mushrooms is up there on my list.
  18. Alison @ ingredients, Inc. December 21, 2011 at 9:28 pm #
    looks incredible! So pretty
  19. Cassie December 22, 2011 at 12:23 am #
    I fall over backwards for white wine sauce. I have a similar recipe for pork chops and it is an incredible combination. Love this. But I really hope you aren't dead.
  20. Lindsay @ Pinch of Yum December 22, 2011 at 1:43 am #
    First, Gourmet Live? You go girl! Secondly... pork is basically the only meat that I really truly love (unless you count shrimp) and your picture of the pork grilling in the pan basically has me in tears. Ah-mazing.
  21. DessertForTwo December 22, 2011 at 5:03 am #
    That silky sauce on the plate makes me want to be an anteater too. Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd say! Congrats on the Gourmet Live feature! This is HUGE girl! You know that, right!? HUUUUUUGE. xo, tina

    will you please write a book...you are hilarious!
  23. Debs @ The Spanish Wok December 22, 2011 at 8:56 am #
    Oh my, this looks and sounds so delicious. I'd have to skip to mushrooms though as they no longer agree with me since my cancer treatment (not fair, I used to live on shrooms).
  24. Sommer@ASpicyPerspective December 22, 2011 at 1:56 pm #
    Let me just say, MMMMMMMMMMM! Yes white wine and cream are ALWAYS a good idea.
  25. Lydia January 3, 2012 at 1:47 am #
    Made this tonight...Yum! Added a touch of cornstarch to thicken. Did I say Yum?!
  26. Healthy Juicer January 5, 2012 at 2:42 am #
    I made this tonight and it was awesome! My fussy teenage daughter gave it a 10! I couldn't believe I finally got a thumbs up from her. I invited my mom and sister over so I tripled the recipe. It really wasn't hard to make. I just need to buy a bigger cast iron pan for next time so I can fit all the pork chops in it.

      I'm so glad to hear your family liked it! Thanks for the report!
  27. Kristin January 23, 2012 at 1:50 am #
    YUM, my boyfriend and I LOVED this. Pork chops are not something I am practiced at making, and I was nervous that I would either under or overcook them - both a big problem with pork ya know? The chops I bought were pretty thick, so I didn't know if I'd need to alter the cooking time. BUT. This was so fool-proof. Mine were cooked and still juicy in the exact amount of time you called for, and the sauce - ohhh the sauce. I actually cheated and used half-and-half (it's what I had!), so I added a bit of flour with the H&H to thicken. I served this over mashed potatoes (with more sauce), and we were swooning. It tastes like special-occasion food, but it was 30 minutes start to finish. Thanks for posting this recipe - I will be making this again and again :)

    I cooked this for my husband and we LOVED it. We did everything but lick the plate clean (and trust me, we thought about it). This recipe is a keeper, thank you so much for sharing!
  29. Kimberly April 10, 2012 at 6:40 pm #
    I LOVE this recipe:) I had a bit of leftover sauce and I mixed it in with the mashed potatoes I made as a side.....INCREDIBLE!!!
  30. Ryan April 10, 2012 at 8:01 pm #
    I modified this recipe a bit to make a new dish. I used slightly more of the current ingredients and added these: Freshly grated parmesan cheese for the sauce (almost as if for alfredo, but not so much cheese) Shallots finely minced Garlic finely minced Garlic powder Onion powder (to taste) I added all of the above ingredients to the sauce, which made it even better than it already was (original sauce is to die for!) and I then served it with the pork chops over fettucini noodles, with slices of garlic bread. Needless to say, I am loving life right now! Thanks so much for posting this recipe!!

    I just made this and am eating it currently. I'm not a great cook but this was easy and soooo tasty. I will def. be using this to impress some friends!! I used some smaller cuts that were a little thicker than chops I've had before and they probably could have come off a little earlier. Now I know. Thanks for the great recipe! It was even better with your excitement about it!
  32. Annaline June 20, 2013 at 10:01 pm #
    Holy moly. Holy wow. You just changed my life. I ate my pork chops in a bowl with a spoon. I'll be using this sauce on everything. You name it. Everything.
  33. Melody Gardner October 20, 2013 at 6:10 pm #
    Love your blog bc good recipes, and you are a riot!!! Hey, I know, they pay you the same to have a good time! I am going to make these pork chops tonight. I have to add my own twist, so I will throw in some garlic and fresh thyme. However, I will continue to follow your blog. I looked at your Pinterest----you need to sew! You would make great garments! Ody
  34. Mark November 26, 2013 at 8:23 am #
    Thanks for the recipe. I was looking for a light white wine and mushroom sauce to use with a venison tenderloin and this was perfect. I had about a one pound tenderloin cut into medallions, so I doubled the recipe. It was perfect with the tenderloins but I think if I try it again, I'll reduce the sauce a little more to thicken it up.
  35. Douglas Drury February 13, 2014 at 11:42 am #
    I made this last night, and my wife flipped over it. Super easy, and super delicious. I sauteed asparagus tips in garlic as a side dish, and spooned the remaining sauce over it. Definitely a winner, and will be repeating this recipe again and again.
  36. Karen Calloway March 17, 2014 at 11:52 pm #
    The sauce WAS delicious. AllI needed was more of it.
  37. Anonymous May 13, 2014 at 6:06 pm #
    What about heating settings, does it change at all from med-high, doesn't say.
  38. Dennis Ferency August 5, 2014 at 7:23 am #
    I'm making this today.....Thank you I'll be watching for.more from you
  39. Alora January 12, 2015 at 11:36 pm #
    I made this for dinner tonight, and it turned out DELICIOUS! I did do a few things differently but stayed pretty true to the recipe. I didn't have any heavy cream handy, so I used some milk with a bit of flour mixed in. I also added minced garlic when sautéing the mushrooms and onion as well as a bit of dried basil to the salt and pepper on the pork chops. Soooo good! Definitely recommend this super simple and delicious recipe to everyone!
  40. Beckus August 11, 2015 at 9:39 pm #
    WOW, this meal is amazing! I didn't have heavy cream on hand, so I used a butter to milk ratio and I did t have white wine, so I used Marsala wine...absolutely delicious! Thank you!!
  41. Nicolle August 25, 2016 at 9:15 pm #
    This might be the first time I ever read a recipe intro and laughed! I'm so excited to try this recipe!
  42. Laurie January 3, 2017 at 4:00 pm #
    We made this and are eating it right now. OMG, this is amazing. I am not a pork chop fan, but I honestly can say this made me a believer. I will definitely be making this again.

    Made mushroom omelette using your idea for the white wine and cream sauce and it was absolutely terrific. Next to try is the pork chops.
