Boneless Pork Chops with Mushrooms & Thyme

Boneless Pork Chops with Mushrooms & Thyme

Although this supper is made to serve two, you can double or triple the recipe so it becomes a family meal that's big on taste but still very healthy. If you'd rather not use vermouth, substitute unsweetened apple juice.

Directions

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

Cooking Instruction

Step 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.

Step 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.
