Recipe: Smothered Pork Chops

Who doesn’t love pork chops? I obviously have a thing for pork (see last post to confirm), and this recipe is so awesome, when I saw it on Food Porn Daily, I had to click on the link to the original recipe and make it for myself. The blog is super cute, a blog about life for an expat in France, cooking and such. It was a good idea to find the source of the recipe.

Pork chops [$4 or so for a pack]
Shallots [$3]
Thyme [$2]
Mushrooms [$2]
Chicken stock [$2]
Dijon mustard (I had this on hand, whole grain works well too)
Flour and butter

Preheat the oven to 425. Dust the chops in flour and place on a baking sheet with butter and let roast for 20 minutes, then flip for about 20 minutes. In the mean time, cut the shallots on the vertical and place in a pan with butter and the mushrooms. Let sweat, then add a cup of stock, a tablespoon of the thyme leaves, and the mustard. Let everything simmer and come together for about 10 minutes. Take the pork out of the oven, let rest, and serve. I served with mashed potatoes and a green salad to make it more of a meal.


Super simple and comforting.
