Boneless Pork Chop with Mushrooms & Thyme Recipe

Sunday, December 14th, 2008

Notes:
This is not my own recipe but you can find this recipe from eatingwell.com

Website for recipe: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/boneless_pork_chops_mushrooms.html

The website lists the nutrition information for the recipe and total time to cook. I found this recipe to be very good. I served it with whole green beans, carrots, and brussel sprouts… but it would be good with just about any vegetable. My husband even enjoyed this low calorie meal!

Servings: 2

Ingredients:
2 5-ounce boneless, center-cut pork loin chops, trimmed and pounded to 1/4 inch thick (see Tip)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium shallot, minced
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms (about 4 ounces)
1/2 cup dry vermouth
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

Directions:
1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add the pork chops and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to 2 serving plates; tent with foil to keep warm.
2. Swirl oil into the pan, add shallot and cook, stirring, until soft, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until they soften and begin to brown, about 2 minutes. Add vermouth and cook for 15 seconds. Stir in mustard, thyme and any juices that have accumulated from the pork; cook until the sauce is thickened and slightly reduced, 1 to 2 minutes more. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops and serve immediately.
