  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Rub pork chops all over with a bit of olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large oven-safe skillet (see note) over medium-high heat.
  • Once butter is melted, drizzle in 1 tablespoon oil. Add the pork chops to the pan and sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side until nicely browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Add remaining butter, garlic and mushrooms to the skillet, saute about 2 minutes until browned.
  • Stir in chicken broth, cream, salt and pepper, and parmesan cheese.
  • Transfer pork chops back to the pan and spoon some of the liquid over the pork chops so they are moistened on all sides.
  • Transfer to pre-heated oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked through and sauce is thickened, spooning liquid from the pan over the pork chops 2-3 times throughout.
  • Spoon mushroom sauce from the pan over the pork chops, garnish with additional cracked black pepper, parmesan cheese, and fresh herbs if desired, and serve.



For a lighter version, you can substitute half and half for the heavy cream. The result will be delicious, though not as rich and creamy. 
I added whole garlic cloves for added garlic flavor and aesthetic. 
If you do not have an oven-safe skillet, you can complete steps 1-6 in a regular pan/skillet, then transfer the sauce and pork chops to a baking dish/casserole dish and bake as directed.
