These Creamy Parmesan Garlic Pork Chops are a quick and delicious weeknight meal! Tender chops simmered in a creamy parmesan garlic sauce. Toss in fresh spinach and serve over noodles.
Right now I’m all about quick and healthy meals on our table. Meals that I can create from start to finish in under 1 hour…especially on weeknights. We’re so busy, and sometimes I’m so tired, making dinner can feel like such a chore. But it doesn’t have to be. If you plan ahead and have the right ingredients on hand, meal time doesn’t have to be stressful.
So I’ve been busy creating new meal recipes that I think families will love. Recipes that use simple and fresh ingredients, and if I can have everything made in one pot, that’s even better! This recipe for Creamy Parmesan Garlic Pork Chops is that kind of recipe.
Tender grilled pork chops simmered in a creamy garlic, parmesan sauce. And for extra flavour and nutrition I’ve added handfuls of fresh spinach. Winner winner pork chop dinner.
And everything is ready in 40 minutes. Can’t beat that.
Doesn’t that look like comfort in a pot?
Serve this dish over rice or your favourite noodles. SO good.
In a skillet on medium/high heat, warm up 1 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp butter.
Season both sides of the pork chops generously with salt and fresh ground pepper.
Add the pork chops to the skillet and sear on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.
Remove the pork chops and transfer them to a plate.
Using the same skillet melt 2 tbsp butter.
Add the onions, minced garlic and sliced mushrooms, and cook until soft and the moisture from the mushrooms has cooked off.
Add the flour to the mixture, mix well and cook for 1 minute.
Stir in the chicken broth and and simmer until the sauce thickens. Make sure to scrape up and stir in all the good brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. If the sauce seems too thick, you can add a little extra broth or water.
Stir in the cream and parmesan cheese.
Season with salt & pepper.
Add the pork chops and simmer for about 10 – 15 more minutes, or until the chops are cooked thoroughly. Stir often so the sauce doesn’t burn to the pan.
Stir in 1 cup of fresh spinach and simmer until the spinach is wilted, so just a couple of minutes.
