Ingredients

Pork Chops:

  • 1 lb. boneless pork chops (4 pieces)
  • 3 tablespoons butter (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 8 oz. mushrooms (sliced)

Creamy Whiskey Sauce:

Instructions

  • Seasoning Pork Chops: Season generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning to prepare them for searing.
  • Cooking Pork Chops: Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    Once hot, add seasoned pork chops from Step 1 and sear them by cooking for 4-5 minutes per side for a total of 8-10 minutes. Remove pork from heat and transfer to a plate. If the pork chops are thick, they won't be cooked through at this point (hence the need for the oven later on).
  • Cooking Mushrooms: Return skillet to heat, add second tablespoon of butter, wait until it melts and then add mushrooms. Cook them for 5-6 minutes on medium heat. Remove them from the skillet and transfer to a plate. 
  • Creamy Irish Whiskey Sauce: Add 3rd tablespoon butter to the pan, wait until melted and next add flour. Cook for about 1 minute on medium heat until well incorporated into the butter mixture. Next start pouring in whiskey while still on medium heat - about 1 minute. Next add beef broth and heavy cream, followed by Worcestershire Sauce and Italian seasoning. Add salt to taste and taste it to make sure it's to your liking. Simmer the sauce for 2-3 minutes only.
  • Final Assembly: Return pork chops to the pan with sauce. Add mushrooms, spreading some of them on top of the pork chops. Spoon some of the sauce on top of the pork and mushrooms. If the pork chops are not too thick, heat them up with a lid on, to keep the heat in, on the stove top to make sure they are warm and done.
  • For Thick Pork Chops Only: If your pork chops are as thick as mine in the picture, follow these steps: Preheat oven to 375 F and cook for 8 minutes. Once internal cooking temperature reaches 145 - 155 F, remove from oven and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
