Why I Love These Pork Chops

This recipe (which is my Mom’s recipe from when I was young) is jam-packed with flavor and the pork comes out incredibly tender and juicy.

This recipe just needs pork chops and a handful of ingredients.

It’s nice and saucy so it’s perfect to spoon over rice or mashed potatoes.

Ingredients & Variations

PORK CHOPS When choosing chops for this recipe, you want a nice thick chop with fat marbled throughout, my personal favorite is to make this with pork steaks.  If the pork chops are too lean, they will dry out.

BREADING Pork chops are tossed in a panko bread crumb mixture to give them a delicious coating. The coating is lightly browned before putting in the pan. While the sauce does soften the crust, it’s incredibly delicious.

MUSHROOMS Any type of fresh mushrooms work. I most often use a mixture of white and cremini mushrooms for great flavor.

How to Make Mushroom Pork Chops

It’s as easy as pie to get this dinner cooking!

  1. Dip each pork chop in egg, then coat with breading mixture (per recipe below). Lightly brown.

Tips for Success

  • Choose pork chops that are evenly sized and with a little extra fat marbling on them, this will keep them extra juicy while they bake! (Lean center cut chops don’t have enough fat for this recipe).
  • Pork steaks are excellent in this recipe.
  • Press the breading into the chops evenly on both sides before sautéing. The breading will keep the meat tender while it bakes.
  • In place of the canned mushroom soup, you can make homemade mushroom soup, or top this casserole your favorite creamy mushroom sauce.
  • If your pork is tough, it likely needs MORE time. Cover it back up and put it in the oven checking after 20 minutes or so.

  1. Made this tonight for the fam jam, and though I’ve made pork chop casserole several times, this may have been the best it’s ever been. Never thought to bread my chops prior, and loved that I didn’t have to cook my mushrooms prior.
    It was delicious!!! Will be making this one again. Thank you.5 stars

    1. You sure can, Wendy! You might just have to adjust the cooking time slightly if you’re putting the dish in the oven when it’s cold. Let us know how they turn out for you!

  2. A huge hit with my husband and seems to be one of his favorite meals now. I only had plain panko so I added Italian seasoning to avoid making a trip to Walmart. Worked fine and turned out delicious.5 stars

  3. Recipe spot on great company dish keeps warm for long time so can sit with company made pasta cooked ahead and ran hot water when going to eat thanks Holly5 stars

    1. So glad you loved this Irene!! Great idea to prep pasta ahead of time and reheat just before eating, thanks for sharing!

  4. I was wondering if you dilute the soup in the pork chop mushroom casserole? Seems like it would be too thick and cook down.

    1. It does thin out from the juices from the pork and the mushrooms. I haven’t tried diluting it but would worry it would be too thin. Let us know how it goes if you try it!

  5. Love the idea of the mushroom pork chops but what temperature do you cook them at? I couldn’t find a temp. but then my eyes aren’t what they use to be. Thanks.

  6. Love your recipes! What temperature do you recommend baking these mushroom pork chops? I don’t see that in the recipe….. Thank you!

  7. CAN’T WAIT TO TRY THIS! I THINK I WOULD SAUTE THE MUSHROOMS A BIT IN PAN THE CHOPS WERE BROWNED IN FOR EXTRA FLAVOR- THOUGHTS?

    1. I haven’t tried browning the mushrooms, the liquid does add to the sauce. If you try it, let us know how it goes!
