Ingredients

  • 2 lbs boneless pork chops
  • 1/2 cup flour for dredging
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 6 morel mushrooms dried
  • 1-2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp shallots chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 dash nutmeg
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp curly parsley chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F.

  2. Place dried morel mushrooms in a bowl with warm water. Soak for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until soft. Cut into two or three pieces.

  3. In a pie dish mix four, salt and pepper. Dredge individual pork chops on both sides and set them aside.

  4. Heat oil in a skillet on medium-high heat and brown pork chops quickly on both sides. Remove from pan and keep warm in the oven.

  5. Turn down the heat to medium. Add the shallots to the same pan and sauté until they are translucent. Slowly add the wine to deglaze the pan. Stir in the cream, mushrooms, and nutmeg and cook for about 5 minutes until the cream begins to thicken.

  6. Pour sauce into a bowl, and serve with pork chops. Sprinkle the chops with parsley.

Recipe Notes

Frequently asked questions:

  • Can I freeze the pork chops? Yes, the cooked pork chops can be frozen once they are completely cooled. Seal then tightly in freeze paper or foil in an airtight container and they will store nicely for 2-3 months.
  • Can I store the morel mushroom cream sauce? Yes, the sauce will keep nicely in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
  • Can I freeze the cream sauce? Since the sauce contains dairy it is not recommended to freeze as it will split and have a grainy texture when thawed.
  • How do I reheat the chops and sauce? Reheat the chops in the microwave for 2-3 minutes and stop to check every 30-45 seconds until hot. You can microwave the sauce the same way and stop to stir the sauce every 30-45 seconds until hot. Once reheated do not cool and store again in the refrigerator, consume it right away. So only reheat the amount you will consume.
