  • 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper 

     

  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil 

Cajun Mushroom Cream Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil 

     

  • 1 cup Button Mushrooms, sliced

     

  • 1 small Onion, minced

     

  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced

     

  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Thyme, chopped

     

  • 1/4 cup Dry White Wine

     

  • 1 cup Chicken Broth 

  • 1 cup Heavy Cream 

     

  • 1/2 tablespoon Cajun Seasoning 

     

  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika

     

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

     

  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper 

  • 1 teaspoon Italian Parsley, chopped 

Instructions

Cajun Pork Chops

Arrange the pork chops on a cutting board or in a shallow baking dish. Season both sides of the pork chops with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. 

 

In a large skillet, add olive oil. Set the skillet over a medium-high flame. 

 

Place pork chops into the hot skillet, making sure not to place them too close to each other and cook for 3-5 minutes per side until browned. Remove the seared pork chops from the skillet and place them on a plate. 

Cajun Mushroom Cream Sauce

To the same skillet, add olive oil. 

 

Add the button mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes until they soften.

 

Stir in onions, garlic, and thyme, and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. 

 

Add white wine and deglaze the skillet. Make sure you run your cooking spoon against the bottom of the skillet to release the brown bits of food. 

 

Stir in chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Return the seared pork chops to the pot and cover the skillet. Decrease the flame to medium-low heat and cook 15-20 minutes until the pork chops are tender. 

 

Remove pork chops from the sauce, place them on a plate, and loosely cover them with foil. 

 

Increase the flame to medium-high heat and let the sauce come to a boil. Cook the Cajun mushroom sauce for 5-8 minutes until it reduces by half. 

 

Whisk in the heavy cream, Cajun seasoning, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper. 

 

Cook the Cajun mushroom sauce for 3 minutes. 

 

Return the pork chops to the Cajun mushroom sauce and cook for 1-2 minutes until heated through. 

 

Garnish the pork chops with parsley before serving with cauliflower rice, vegetables, or your desired side dish.
