Pork Chops in a Porcini Gravy

I made this recipe recently with pork chops then with steaks both equally delicious and super easy to make. The Porcini mushrooms add a rich and meaty flavor to the dish and really make a special gravy. So next time you walk past the dried mushrooms be sure to put a pack in the shopping cart :-)

  • one small pack of porcini mushrooms (a wild Italian mushroom)
  • 2 medium pork chops
  • about a cup of bisto gravy (a classic British gravy) or any desired gravy
  • 1/2  a chopped red onion
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic

  1. soak the porcini mushrooms in water for about 20 minutes
  2. saute the onion and garlic in olive oil for 5 minutes then add the pork chops to brown 
  3. cook the pork for 7-10 minutes then add a 1-2 cups of gravy and the porcini mushrooms and simmer for another 10 minutes
  4. serve with mashed potatoes and any desired vegetables
  5. aw comfort food at its best

Just wanted to say thank you for being here with me :-), your friendships and comments have made 2010 wonderful

Happy New Year
