Pork Chops in a Marsala Mushroom Sauce.
This easy and delicious meal is perfect for date night, an elegant dinner party or even a weeknight meal.
Local bone-in chops are seasoned with salt and pepper, then seared. Removed the chops and added butter to the pan. Tossed in cremini mushrooms, fresh thyme leaves, and cooked the mushrooms for 4-5 minutes. Sprinkled on a tablespoon of flour and cooked for a minute or two. Added about a cup of Marsala, then cooked it down for a minute. Added a cup & a half of stock, brought it to a boil then simmered it for 6-7 minutes. Returned the chops to the sauce and put the skillet in the oven for 15 minutes, flipping the chops once. Removed the chops to a plate and reduced down the sauce until it reached the desired consistency.
Serve the chops bathed in the delicious sauce, with mashed potatoes or rice, your favourite veggies and nice bottle of wine. We choose a Californian Chardonnay, but this dish also pairs nicely with a Pinot Noir or an Argentinian Malbec.
