Fast and Fancy

Quick midweek meals don’t get much better than this. Fast enough for the busiest of weeknights, fancy enough for company.

The honey glaze for these pork chops is simply divine. It’s sweet balanced with tang from mustard which also helps thicken the sauce, and it has depth of flavour from a splash of wine.

The Best Seasoning

But the real flavour base for this recipe is the golden brown sear from the pork that is left in the pan after browning it. When you add a splash of wine and it sizzles away, all those gorgeous golden brown bits dissolve into the wine. And it’s like the best seasoning you can ever have in a sauce.

The first person to figure out how to bottle it up and sell those golden brown bits will be an instant millionaire. Billionaire! ;-)

Pick Your Meat

I made this with pork, but it’s a brilliant recipe for chicken too. And fish and shrimp. The flavour is probably a bit too sweet for beef and lamb, although if you added a bit of earthiness with some herbs like thyme then I think it would pair beautifully with red meats too.

Make It with Mushrooms

I have always loved pork chops with mushrooms and while I don’t usually make this dish with mushrooms, I added them at the last minute on a whim and I’m so glad I did! The mushrooms act like a sponge for the sauce so you get even more of that gorgeous sauce smothering the pork. It was perfect!

I can’t imagine serving this with anything other than mashed potato. The perfect vehicle for all that beautiful sauce!

This sauce is sweet but it’s balanced out with tang from mustard. If it’s too sweet for your taste, it’s an easy fix – just do a taste test at the end and add a splash of cider vinegar to offset the sweetness. You can’t really cut down on the honey otherwise the sauce isn’t thick enough.

Leftover Mushroom Pork Chops? Leftovers will keep 3-4 days in the fridge. If you’re going to keep them longer than that, I’d suggest freezing them. To reheat, defrost in the fridge overnight and place in a small dish at 350°F for about 20-25 minutes or until heated through. You can also reheat this dish in the microwave.

Ingredients  

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 4 pork chops around 7 ounces each, preferably bone in
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • cup chicken broth or water
  • salt and pepper
  • parsley finely chopped, for garnish

Instructions 

  • Place butter and oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. When the butter has melted and the oil is hot, add mushrooms, salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden, then transfer to a bowl.
  • If the skillet is looking dry, add a touch of oil and return to the stove.
  • Season pork on both sides with salt and pepper. Place in the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked to your taste. Remove into a plate and cover loosely with foil.
  • Add white wine into skillet – it will sizzle. Cook for 1 minute, scraping the bottom of the skillet, or until you can no longer smell alcohol. Add remaining ingredients and mix (mustard will dissolve better once it comes to heat but use a whisk if necessary).
  • Simmer for 2 minutes or until it reduces and becomes like a thin syrup. Return mushrooms to the sauce. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, if its too sweet for your taste add a tiny touch of cider vinegar.
  • Serve pork, topped with the honey glaze and mushrooms, garnished with parsley if using.

  1. Just to be sure: the garlic is added after the white wine with the rest of the ingredients? Not with the mushrooms? Thanks

  2. Very disappointing. Sauce was thin and no significant flavor. Sorry I wasted my time and expensive ingredients. Will not retry.

    1. That is disappointing, thank you for trying the recipe. If your sauce was thin, it likely needed to be simmered a bit longer (which would also intensify the flavor). If your skillet is a medium skillet or smaller (10-inch or less) this can affect the simmering time.
