Pork Chops in a Mushroom Paprika Sauce

Pork Chops with Mushrooms, Dill, and Sour Cream Sauce

The beef stroganoff that I made a while ago has been on my mind and I was really craving it again. With the holidays coming I have not had much time at all and I have been looking for quick meals so braising the beef for the stroganoff was out of the question. I had some pork chops in the freezer that needed to be used and I thought that pork chops with a mushroom, dill and sour cream sauce similar to the stroganoff sauce would hit the spot. This recipe turned out to be much quicker than the original but it was no less tasty. I served the pork chops with mushroom, dill and sour cream sauce on egg noodles and I added some steamed spinach to make it a one dish meal. This new sauce was really tasty; lick the plate clean good in fact. With the sauce on top it covered the pork chops, the noodles and the steamed spinach in it rich flavourful goodness. It was one quick and tasty meal that satisfied my cravings.

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon oil
4 pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion (sliced)
1 (8 ounce) package cremini mushrooms (sliced)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried dill
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup beef stock
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons dill (chopped)

Directions:
1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
2. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.
3. Saute the pork chops until just cooked all the way through and golden brown on both sides, about 2-4 minutes per side and set aside.
4. Melt the butter in the pan over medium heat.
5. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
6. Add the mushrooms and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
7. Add the tomato paste, flour, paprika, dill, salt and pepper and stir.
8. Add the stock and deglaze the pan.
9. Simmer until the sauce thickens.
10. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream and dill.

I love this pork version! I bet the spinach tasted great with it as well. Lovely photo ... I'd like the plate clean, too!

this would be great with a touch of marsala in the sauce, too!

Gee, this brings back childhood memories! These are the flavours that ooze homemade yumminess in my tummy!

Mushrooms with a good slab of meat. Home cooked food doesn't get any better than this! Perfect photograph too!

daphne said...

What a yummy warm idea. Who would hv thought beef strononoff can transform into a pork dish as well.

Melissa said...

Sounds delicious, especially with the spinach! Whenever I try to make pork chops though, they always turn out so dry or hard. I'm not sure what it is.

Natashya said...

Looks wonderful, I really must pick up some pork chops. And, of course, everything is better on a bed of egg noodles!

Elra said...

This is my weakness, every time I cook pork chops for my son, it always turn out either overcook or uncooked.
Yours look mouth watering!
Have a great holiday!

I don't blame you for wanting more of your previous stroganoff! That was good looking! And so it this. Chaulk this one up as a classic comfort food dish.

The sauce on the pork chops looks rich and creamy.

Pam said...

This sounds even better to me than the beef stroganoff!

After seeing the photo, I just had to make this one. It looks SO good! The problem was I didn't have pork or beef. I had some turkey leftover (Don't worry, it's not from Thanksgiving!) I thought the combination of beef stock and turkey was a little odd... but I decided to go ahead and use the thick slices of breast meat. I sautéed turkey breast with butter and poured the sauce over the turkey on noodles. It was delicious! My son said, "Mmmmm... Mom, you need to make this more often." My husband loved it, too. This is kept in my recipe box now. Next time I'm going to use pork chops. I already know it will be great. Thanks for the great recipe!

Recipe is great except for the mushrooms. I don't eat fungi. I leave the mushrooms out of my stroganof. People tend to cook pork too long. Seer the outside and lower the heat and cook slow. Need to keep checking to not overcook.

Now there's an idea... I also got bitten by the Stroganoff bug after I made my mushroom Stroganoff. It's such a great conbo of flavours. Definitely bookmarking this.

We just made this for dinner and loved it. Next time I may use tarragon instead of dill as it was not my husbands favorite.

That was one of the most incredible meals I've ever made. Thank you so much! I did have to stick the pork chops in the oven a bit longer (they were thick). Wow, that sauce was good. So simple and so good.
