How to Cook Perfect Pork Chops in a Pan?

This pork chop recipe requires no marinating, yet searing it in a delicious combo or butter, and olive oil gives a fabulous flavor and crispy brown delicious edges.

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and sear them in butter and oil.
  3. Remove the meat and sauté the mushrooms, garlic, and herbs.
  4. Add the heavy cream and bring to a boil.
  5. Return the pork chops in the creamy mushroom sauce and cook for a few more minutes until tender.

I only season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Enjoy juicy, golden pork chops. After the meat is ready, it’s time for the creamiest sauce in the world.
To get the best flavors, sauté the mushrooms, garlic, and herbs in the same fat that’s left after cooking the pork chops. Those browned bits leftover in the skillet will increase the flavors!

Can I use bone-in pork chops?

This recipe is perfect for bone-in pork chops. Using pork chops with bone in will increase the cooking time with about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Remember that cooking time depends on the thickness of the meat. If you have a meat thermometer, use it in the thickest part of the meat. It should read anywhere between 145F (medium-rare) to 160F (well-done).

What Mushrooms can I use?

Use any mushrooms you have on hand. I love white or brown mushrooms, cremini or portobello mushrooms. Canned sliced mushrooms work well too.

Mushrooms are one of the best low carb vegetables you can eat on a keto diet. One cup of mushrooms (70g) has only 2.3g carbs.
