Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy

Made the Pork Chops with Mushroom Pan Gravy from the Land O Lakes cookbook for supper tonight. It was well received. I however do not like pan gravy made with milk or cream but will have to admit that this wasn’t too bad. I did add a splash of Dry Sherry to the gravy. We decided the next time, to use pork steak, just because we like it better. I would add slightly more cooking time to the meat when it is covered if using pork steak instead of chops.
I also sautéed the mushrooms in the bacon fat for a few minutes, removed from pan to a plate before adding the onions to brown. All in all, a good meal served with brown rice and will make again. Mashed or riced potatoes would go equally as well with the pork.

  1. Another keeper, Myrna. We don't eat pork very often, but I would buy some nice, lean chops for this recipe alone.
