I use center cut loin pork chops. They look like little T-bone steaks. I know that the little tenderloin part will always be tender enough for me to eat. This is a ‘keep it super simple’ or KISS recipe.

Smothered Pork Chop

5.0 from 1 reviews
Smothered Pork Chops
  • 2 center cut pork chops
  • salt and black pepper
  • cornstarch
  • olive oil
  • 4 ounces baby bella or portobello mushrooms sliced
  • ½ cup chicken broth or white wine
  • 1½ cups prepared pasta sauce - I use Mario Batali or Gia Russa as they do not have added sugar
  1. I season with salt and pepper on both sides then sprinkle with a light dusting of about a teaspoon of cornstarch and pat them so you can barely see it.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in non stick skillet and brown the pork on both sides. Remove to a plate. Add the mushrooms season with salt and pepper and cook until browned. Deglaze with the chicken broth or wine and stir in 2 cups pasta sauce. Add the pork chops back into the sauce, cover, simmer for 25 minutes until tender.
  3. Serve with a side salad of romaine, tomatoes, cucumbers and olives. Season with salt and pepper and toss with olive oil and red wine vinegar.
