Mushroom & Spinach Pork Chops!

November 12, 2021

Mushroom & Spinach Pork Chops!

A recipe!? Yeah, did you know that we sell meat too? It's easy to forget with my incessant info about burgers and whatnot. But to show you just how far behind I am, I found this recipe in January when I was doing #Whole30 and had a note to make it February 1st because it sounded amazing so yeah Mady actually just made it July 8th. Pretty close! Good grief.happy pigs pork chops.jpgI mean, we also didn't have pork chops for a super long time but we do now and we had some open packages and weird-shaped ones to use up (the #farmercuts), note that we used at least twice the amount of meat called for and I very highly do NOT recommend this - the sauce is so good, you should probably just double what's listed below. Okay, so here we go (so good and so easy and 100% good-for-you! #nonfatiswhatkillsya #sugarsucks):

2 bone-in chops or 4 boneless from #happypigs

Sea salt & black pepper

2 Tbsp good #lard (or coconut oil)

8 oz baby bella mushrooms sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1 tsp dried oregano

pinch red pepper flakes

3 cups packed baby spinach

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season pork chops on both sides with sea salt and black pepper. Place chops in hot skillet and cook on each side for 1 min. Turn heat down to medium and cook for 8-10 minutes more, flipping every minute until internal temp reaches 135 degrees.

Protip: Treat chops like STEAK and PLEASE do NOT cook them to death. Pink in the middle is good, the goal is 145 degrees after resting for 5 minutes.

So once you get to 135 remove from heat, cover with foil and let rest for 5-7 minutes.

While the pork rests, add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Then add garlic and cook about 1 minute (until fragrant).

Mix in the heavy cream, Parmesan, oregano and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Taste the sauce!

Add sea salt if needed and red pepper flakes. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook until desired thickness is achieved (about 3 minutes).

Enjoy thoroughly. Really any wine you love will pair nicely with this. We served it with couscous, which was great for soaking up the sauce.

.There. So easy a teenager made this and was pretty proud of the picture she got too!

Bonus: it's a fun-guy kinda week! We also have a next-level mushroom-swiss-garlic-scape-pesto burger this week. (I mean, I can't not talk about burgers.) Use whatever non-poisonous mushrooms you have on hand for either! #getoutandforage
