Ingredients & Variations
PORK CHOPS When choosing chops for this recipe, you want a nice thick chop with fat marbled throughout, my personal favorite is to make this with pork steaks. If the pork chops are too lean, they will dry out.
BREADING Pork chops are tossed in a panko bread crumb mixture to give them a delicious coating. The coating is lightly browned before putting in the pan. While the sauce does soften the crust, it’s incredibly delicious.
MUSHROOMS Any type of fresh mushrooms work. I most often use a mixture of white and cremini mushrooms for great flavor.
How to Make Mushroom Pork Chops
It’s as easy as pie to get this dinner cooking!
- Dip each pork chop in egg, then coat with breading mixture (per recipe below). Lightly brown.
- Place pork chops in baking dish, cover with soup and mushrooms.
- Bake until tender.
Tips for Success
- Choose pork chops that are evenly sized and with a little extra fat marbling on them, this will keep them extra juicy while they bake! (Lean center cut chops don’t have enough fat for this recipe).
- Pork steaks are excellent in this recipe.
- Press the breading into the chops evenly on both sides before sautéing. The breading will keep the meat tender while it bakes.
- In place of the canned mushroom soup, you can make homemade mushroom soup, or top this casserole your favorite creamy mushroom sauce.
- If your pork is tough, it likely needs MORE time. Cover it back up and put it in the oven checking after 20 minutes or so.
