Gourmet Pork Chops

Ducklings' Favorite (aka: Gourmet Pork Chops)  

This is one of the Ducklings' all-time favorite meals. Amazingly, it's also easy and worthy of company. So I would call this my "WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER" (except with Pork). 


6 Pork Chops (Bone In)
Garlic Powder
Drizzle of Olive Oil
1 tbs butter
Sliced Mushrooms (a lot or a little, or maybe even none. Ducklings like A LOT)
1 Onion, sliced (red, yellow, white... Ducklings don't care)
1 cup Chicken Broth
1/2 cup red wine (pretty much any kind... just not a sweet wine)
1-2 Garlic gloves - minced
Bay Leaf


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Season pork chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Drizzle pan with olive oil and seer the pork chops over med-high heat until golden on both sides.
  • Remove pork to a 9x12 baking dish
  • Saute mushrooms and onion in the butter for a few minutes
  • Add chicken broth, wine, minced garlic and bay leaf. Simmer for 5 minutes or so.
  • Poor mushroom mixture over pork chops. Cover and bake for 1 hour.
  • Optional: Strain the juice and thicken with flour or cornstarch for a yummy gravy. But it's super yummy without the thickener. I'm all about easy...so we just use the juice as is.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes or rice and whatever veg you like. Ducklings recommend steamed asparagus. 
This dinner is killer good!  I mean like... WOW GOOD! 

This recipe comes from one of the Atkins cookbooks.  Yes... that's right... it's also low carb (without the mashed potatoes, of course). Low carb enthusiests...you will love me for this...cross my heart! YOU ARE WELCOME!  :)
