Pork Chops with Soy Mushroom Gravy

When my Nana was alive, and I was a little girl, she made me a blanket. I think it was crocheted (maybe? I am not crafty like that, so I could be lying)
Over the years I loved it to death.

One Christmas she made me a brand new, bigger one. She even gave me matching throw pillows (not homemade) to go with it and make it look like a "set".

That "new" blanket still sits proudly on the back of my couch. Hubby laughs because I pick at it. Without even thinking about it, I pick at all the loops and knots in it.

This is a habit I would like to break as Nana is no longer here to make me a new one. I refuse to put it away though, I want it used, and loved, and snuggled with.

This recipe was in an edition of Good Housekeeping magazine that was handed to me. Love me some mushrooms!
Makes me warm and fuzzy on the Nana's blanket does on the outside!
** I forgot snow peas at the grocery and just threw in some regular peas I had on hand. Still delish!

2 Tbsp vegetable oil
4 Pork chops
¼ Tsp salt
¼ Tsp pepper
10 oz shiitake mushrooms
1 Cup chicken broth
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tsp cornstarch
8 oz snow peas

2. Add pork and cook 4 minutes or until both sides are browned
3. Remove pork, set aside on a plate

Come party with me HERE!


  1. Yum! It does look like comfort food for sure! I love pork chops and mushrooms together!

  2. This has made me feel very hungry, do you think there is a good vegetarian alternative to the chops?

    1. I think there is enough flavor that some seared tofu would be good...and (unless it's overload for a non mushroom lover) some big portabella would be delicious!

  3. This looks like such comfortable and delicious food! I bet the mushrooms go with the pork chops so well. :)

  4. Get comfort food and with so potatos. Yummy! I am so happy you shared this recipe at Dishing it and Digging it link party. We love having you. Have a great week.
