condensed cream of mushroom soup
I can imagine how, if followed exactly, this recipe could be bland-- but I took the advice of other raters and changed it up a bit. We loved this version enough to give it five stars and make it our new pork chop sauce! It came out pretty amazing. First, I melted a big hunk of butter in the saucepan and covered it in my favorite spices (thyme, rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper). Then I threw in two chopped onions and some minced garlic (all of this sauteing in butter smelled amazing!) Then I threw in a can of sliced mushrooms and put about 4 dashes of dark ale beer in. I let this mixture boil for a couple of minutes, removed it from the skillet & added the pork. I browned the pork for about ten minutes, mixed the sour cream, soups and mushroom mixture together and poured over top. I only simmered everything together for 20 minutes since my porkchops were cut thin. YUM! We were sopping up the sauce with mashed potatoes and everything, it was really good.
I don't know what I did wrong to miss the WOW in this that everyone is talking about. I followed the recipe to T and it tasted sour to me. It was creamy and easy but when I tasted it, I didn't get that POW.
I agree with another reviewer that said this is pretty basic. You really need to get some spices into it. Pick your favorites and try it out. It really does have a lot of potential. We liked it after adding some sauteed mushrooms and garlic. I also added some white wine while the mushrooms and garlic cooked.(Will make again with my changes.) Thanks for the post.
Awesome! I, too made some adjustments...garlic, fresh mushrooms, white wine, and seasoned pork chops with kosher salt, pepper and a dash of cayenne, just for a kick. Also have tried with chicken. One of those "comfort foods" that even our girls liked!! A good one to take to a neighbor who is sick, or has a new baby..whatever. Thanks so much.
I also agree with everyone that said the recipe was bland. What I did to change it up was (of course add seasoning like most) but I breaded the pork chops first. with a flour/egg/bread crumb mix. cooked for about 5 minutes on each side, made the sauce in the pan, then added the pork chops back in and cooked in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes.
Chops were very tender and putting it in the oven gave the sauce more body. We gave it a 5 with the changes we made.
These were good. I had three huge boneless pork chops we had first intended to butterfly and grill. They ended up in the skillet however!
I added 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 12 ounces of sour cream, parsley, salt, pepper, and garlic. I made sure the chops were good and brown on both sides and around the edges before I added the soup mixture. I ended up only having to cook them for 35 minutes once I put in the soup. I had to stay with them and stir frequently. The sauce bubbles up and and "curdles" like milk. I also flipped the chops a little more often than 15 minutes. They tended to stick. This made the house smell wonderful. I didn't serve the gravy with the chops. After 30 minutes it was just too thick. The taste of the chops was very good. I think, however, next time I will toss the whole thing in the slow cooker instead.
I liked this recipe because it was basic...you can add things to it to spice it up, or just keep it sort of bland. I added more mushrooms, some chopped black olves and a hit of lemon pepper. It came out well. Very basic, but lots of potential.
There isn't anything wrong with the recipe. I just didn't love it. I 1/2ed it b/c I only had 4 pork chops instead of 6 and there was a ton of leftover sauce I ended up throwing away. I liked the flavor of the sauce but didn't need so much. I also made some additions like I read others did...I added garlic and onions and cut up fresh mushrooms. I think it was an improvement but it needs less sour cream. I might use this recipe again with my adjustments.
