Mushroom Smothered Pork Chops – Are You KIDDING Me?!?!

One of the things I’ve missed since going Paleo is Mushroom Soup! You can make so many things awesome with a great Mushroom Soup. So I really wanted to make Pork Chops (the really thick yummy kind) awesome with some kind of mushroom soup.  I scoured the internet drooling over so many recipes until I found this one from Fast Paleo. It was so easy and it tasted amazing!! My family said that this one is definitely going in “THE BOOK” of fabulous food! I altered the original recipe a bit, because I don’t know how to follow a recipe…. sorry 🙂


Ingredients:

  • 4 thick pork chopsIMG_7639
  • salt, pepper, thyme and rosemary to season chops
  • coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 T minced garlic
  • 1 T oregano
  • 1 C chicken broth
  • 1 C coconut milk (if you are using canned, I recommend mixing the whole can up really well, then pouring out 1 C for this meal)

Directions

  1. Season the chops with Salt, Pepper, Thyme and Rosemary – I put on a pretty good coating.
  2. Medium / High heat, melt coconut oil and fry the pork chops 5 minutes on each side. Remove from pan.
  3. Saute onions and mushrooms for 5 minutes, add garlic and saute for another 3 minutes, add oregano and saute until most liquid is gone.IMG_7642
  4. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low / medium and add pork chops back in the pan. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Uncover and simmer for another 5 minutes.
  5. Pour in coconut milk, turn the heat back up to medium / high, bring to a boil then simmer for 10-15 minutes until sauce is reduced by a third to half.

I had a side salad with this for myself (I’m the only one who is Paleo) and my family had some pasta and a salad.
