Why You'll Love This Dish
Just one bite of these juicy pork chops with garlicky butter and fragrant sauteed mushrooms will make you feel like you are eating a high-end restaurant meal. In fact, these pork chops are super easy to make and cook really quickly. The garlic mushroom sauce made with butter and just a little bit of water or stock perfectly pairs with pork.

- pork chops - I used bone-in pork chops.
- mushrooms - Any work, I used baby Bella mushrooms.
- garlic - I recommend using fresh garlic bulbs. Mince or chop them finely.
- chicken stock - Needed to deglaze the pan.
- butter and olive oil - My go-to combo for frying. It allows the chops and mushrooms to brown nicely.
How to cook pork chops?
- To start, heat up olive oil in a skillet. A cast iron skillet is what I use when cooking pork chops or chicken thighs because it results in a better sear.
- Season pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Cook each side for 3 to 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Check the temperature to make sure the pork chops are cooked through. Remove chops onto a plate and set aside.
- Add butter to skillet and melt. Add garlic and mushrooms. Season with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika.
- Add ¼ cup of chicken stock or water and stir in with mushrooms.
- Add remaining butter, let melt and add pork chops back to skillet. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Serve pork chops with mashed or roasted potatoes or other vegetables.
What pork chops should I use?
For this recipe, I used bone-in pork chops. You can use what you have on hand. I recommend checking the internal temperature of your chops to make sure they are cooked through. Some pork chops are thicker than others so it's always to be safe and check if they are done with a meat thermometer.
What to serve with pork chops?
I tend to always go for potatoes. Pork chops just fit the "meat and potatoes" type of dinner so well. You can go with yellow, red or even sweet potatoes. Also a great option are baked potatoes. More vegetables that go well with these pork chops are Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, roasted carrots, green beans, spinach, creamed corn, etc.

This was a tasty and quick way to prepare a last-minute supper.
Loved the garlic and mushroom combo.
We served it with rice and asparagus. Yum!
That sounds perfect! Thank you so much for making my recipe, Barbara!
I made this for dinner tonight with mashed potatoes. It was very good. I only had thin cut boneless pork chops. I adjusted the cooking time and it was really good. Super easy. I'll make it again.
Really good! Added a sliced leek, mostly because I needed use before it dried up. Perfect! Like the idea of adding a bit of white wine - will probably try that next. Thanks for a great recipe for tweaking according to individual tastes. I'll definitely be making this again.
M Heinrichs says
This was very good, I added the onions and Dijon mustard as suggested. It was easy and quick, I will make again. Thanks for sharing!
Incredible, wonderful restaurant quality recipe!! THANK YOU!!!!
Kellie Hubbard says
Made this last night. Added some shallots and white wine. Restaurant quality. Made it with roasted asparagus and potatoes. It was like Christmas morning in my mouth
Brenda Wing says
Great recipe. Was wondering if the searing be done in oven since thinking on making 6 chops, then making sauce on stove top. Let me know, but again such a tasty way to make pork chops!
So glad I found this recipe - it is quick, easy and most of all delicious! The baby bella mushrooms add so much flavor. I will make this again, again and again!!!
Awesome! I am so glad the pork chops were a hit! Thank you, Diane!
This turned out quite well. I used boneless instead bone in as supermarket was out, and meat was a little tough. Boyfriend loved the sauce, which I used 1/2 chicken bouillion cube and a little dijon mustard.. Served with Knorr's cheddar broccoli rice and black eyed peas.
Chad Zimmerman says
This is uber delicious and I've already sauteed a pork chop twice with equal results. And just tonight, I tried it with chicken breasts and butterflied them and it was delicious too!! What a wonderful and a recipe so simple (yes, this is proof that God wants us to be happy). Superb with a Southern Rhone red, Volnay or Cru Beaujolais!!!
Very tasty and pork comes out tender. We doubled recipe to four boneless chops and added spinach at the end. It all comes together in about 30 minutes so this is a keeper. Thank you!
This had more flavor than I thought it would and was so fast and easy just like the recipe and previous reviews say! For my sides I made mashed potatoes and fresh asparagus and was divine!
This was a huge hit for dinner! I was looking for a new way to cook pork chops, and I just happened to have all these ingredients on hand (except the mushrooms, I used cremini), and wow, thanks so much for this delicious recipe!
My pork chops were very dry and tough, but that is only because of my novice cooking experience and I cooked them way too long (I have a fear of under cooked meat and can't sear worth beans) . Although taking a bite of chop along with a savory garlicky mushroom made it better, so no complaints from me! Will definitely make again!
I love this recipe so much!! The pork chops come out so moist and tender on the inside and a little bit crispy on the outside to seal in the juices.
Delicious! I had to eat more than one. My husband said it was delicious too. Thank you
I made this tonight with boneless pork loin and it was fabulous! Don’t try this in a non-stick pan because I think the cast iron is key. And it doesn’t hurt to add an extra tablespoon of butter! I’ll definitely make this one again and again.
Thank you so much, Julie!
I've been making pork chops for years but this is absolutely the best recipe I've ever made!
I used thick, boneless chops and they were still delicious.
That's wonderful! Thank you so much, Danielle!
Gabriel Mullen says
Phenomenal. I make this all the time, and I add extra paprika and a shallot to the mushrooms. Works a charm!
Thank you, Gabriel! I am so glad the pork chops were a success!

Ashley J says
So excited to try this tonight! This sounds perfect for my family!
I hope you and your family love the pork chops, Ashley! Let me know!
Great for one person. I used half of the ingredients. I used 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic in jar for 1 pork chop. Used rest of mushrooms on mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy.J
This is an every other week dinner on our menu. I doubled the recipe to accommodate the extra chops. My little who has a very picky palate loves this.
Hi Cyndi! That's wonderful! I am so glad the pork chops are a hit, especially with your little one! Thank you for trying my recipe!

This recipe was delicious! I made the dish twice in one week!
Thank you so much, Penny!
Thank you, Victoria!
Very simple! Added some leftover trader Joe's shaved brussel sprouts and extra garlic. Served w salad from the garden. Pinned and will definitely make again.
I made this tonight and it was amazing. My chops were real think so I had to cook longer but OMG they were great. I also added 1Tablespoons of corn starch that made the gravy nice and thick. So going to make again. And I have never been a huge pork chop fan but these are amazing.
Hi Deon! Yay! That's fantastic! I am so glad the pork chops were such a hit! Thank you for making my recipe.
Soooooo amazingly delicious! I wasn’t able to simmer the chop back in the pan but made sure that they were done when plating and topped with the mushroom sauce. Thank you!
Thank you so much, Michelle! I am so glad the pork chops were a hit!
made this for lunch just now, perfect timing + temp for the chop, it came out so juicy. I had it with brussels sprouts and potatoes, cause it’s what I had. Also, I added some gochugaru, a Korean spice, to give the meat a little kick. Thanks for the post and recipe!
Looks so good. Going to try tonight. One question....is the nutrition facts you provided per pork chop or for 2 pork chops. Sorry if this seems like a silly question.
Hi Tracy! Not a silly question at all. The calorie count is per serving, so per pork chop. I hope this helps and I hope you love the dish!
I add onions and spinach, soo delicious!!
I love your additions, Kristen! Thank you!
Looks delicious! How thick are the pork chops you used?
Heather MacArthur says
This is soooooo delicious!
I am so glad you love it! Thank you, Heather!
Ronda Deweese says
Can I make this in my instant pot?! What would you recommend on directions?
Hi Ronda! I did not test this recipe in the Instant Pot so I can't guarantee the result. You can try this: follow steps 1-5 in the Instant Pot (add 1/2 cup of water or stock). Skip step 6 and cook them on HIGH pressure for 15 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally. I hope this helps! Again, I did not test this recipe in my IP so I can't guarantee the result.
Hands down the best pork chops I've ever made! My wife was so impressed! Thank you for the recipe!
Linda Raufer says
If I add a little cream to the sauce, what do you think.
Hi Linda! That will work! 😀
Jamee Smith says
My family loved these! Great flavor & the pork chops we're perfectly moist cooked 3 minutes on each side.
Hi Jamee! YAY! That's fantastic! I am so happy to know you and your family love the pork chops. Thank you so much!
These were absolute perfection.
I made this today so easy and good! I added onions to made it so yummy. I'm not a cook but so simple.
Lance Nord says
Excellent... the family loved it. I served this with herb roasted baby potatoes (and veggies). The gravy was a perfect compliment to the potatoes. Thank you.
Jennyve Borbon says
Thanks for sharing these recipe my son and husband like it and of me too 😘🤗 God bless you and I’ll serve every time we have special gathering now😘😊
If you are making 8 chops do you multiply everything by 4? I ask because that would be 16 T of butter. Just want to make sure the mushroom part is the right consistency. I am going to make tonight for dinner.
Yep, I would multiply by 4. Let me know how you like the dish!
My hubby and I made this tonight and we loved it! We will definitely be adding this to one of our dinner choices!
Woohoo! I am so happy that it was a hit! Thank you so much, Gidget!
Made this. Added onions. Best chops EVER!
Woohoo!! Thank you so much, Laurie!!
Score! An amazingly easy and delicious recepie that my whole family loves. Sooooo yummy
I am drooling looking at all of your pictures! This is happening ASAP!
