Ok, here is another “diet” recipe. Pork loin chops in mushroom cream sauce with sauteed green beans. This is a great recipe, and super easy to make:
|Pork Chops with Mushrooms and Cream Sauce, with sauteed green beans|
2 boneless pork chops
4 tbs olive oil
1 small shallot, diced small, split in half
3 cloves garlic, diced small, split in half
2 tbs olive oil * NOT extra virgin
2 tbs butter
1/2 bag frozen green beans ( or about a cup of fresh – fresh is preferable)
1/2 pkg mushrooms, diced
2/3 cup 1/2 and 1/2
Salt and pepper to taste
In large saute pan, place 2 tbs olive oil, and one tbs butter, melt over med high heat. Place chops in pan, and brown on each side – about 5 minutes per side. Remove meat to separate plate, lower heat to med. Add 1/2 shallots, garlic, and sautee till translucent – about 4 or 5 minutes.
Add mushrooms, saute till tender, abut 4 minutes. Slowly add cream, stir to remove brown bits from bottom of pan. Add pork back, and simmer over low/med heat till warmed through.
|Re heat chops in sauce|
|Sautee beans, garlic and shallots|
Pan roasted green beans:

This is a great recipe, and a standard fall back for Lynne and I when we want a great home cooked meal in about 20 minutes. Awsome!
