This dish combines tender pork with a creamy white wine sauce that’ll leave you wanting more.

Preparing the Pork Chops

To start with the recipe, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add boneless pork chops to the skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides for seasoning. Cook the pork chops until browned, approximately 4 minutes per side.

Once browned, remove the pork chops from the skillet and keep them warm. While you are waiting, make sure to wipe off any burnt bits left in the pan with paper towels.

Making the White Wine Mushroom Sauce

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a skillet. Add minced garlic (2 cloves) and chopped onion (1/2 cup), cook until fragrant approximately 1-2 minutes.

Add sliced fresh mushrooms (8 ounces) and chopped green pepper (1), then cook for approximately 5 minutes or until tender.

Next, pour in ¾ cup of dry white wine and stir until combined scraping down the sides of the pan with a spoon. Raise the heat to high, then bring everything to a boil and let it simmer for approximately 5 minutes or until reduced by half.

Add canned diced tomatoes (14.5 ounces), one tablespoon of all-purpose flour, one teaspoon of dried herbs like rosemary or thyme, and season it with additional salt and pepper according to your taste preference. Let everything bubble for another minute stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low, and gently return the seared pork chops into the wine sauce on top of veggies in the skillet. Simmer everything for another 10 minutes to ensure pork is cooked through completely.

Simmering soaks up all flavors into tender pork chops as they become more flavorful . This is also great if you’re looking to take advantage of all that residual flavor at the bottom of the skillet.

Serving the Pork Chops

To serve these delicious white wine sauce pork chops, make sure to spoon a good amount of the creamy white sauce over the top while serving. These pork chops creamy with wine sauce are great on their own or can be enjoyed with a side salad, roasted veggies, or a crusty bread.

Pairing Choice:

When it comes to pairing these pork chops in white wine sauce, there are plenty of dry white wines that would work well including unoaked chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, and albarino. The creamy mushroom sauce can also be paired with a crisp red wine like pinot noir especially if you prefer heavier flavors for your meal.

Substitutions and Variations

 Perfect for dinner parties or a cozy dinner date, these pork chops are sure to impress.

Are you looking to mix things up? Don’t be afraid to substitute or add your favorite ingredients. Here are some ideas:

– Wine: While dry white wine is the star of this dish, don’t hesitate to use other wines, such as a full-bodied red or a crisp rosé, for a different twist on the dish.

– Vegetables: I love using tomatoes, mushrooms, and green peppers in this recipe, but feel free to swap them out with other veggies. Zucchini or eggplant would work great in this dish.

– Meat: This recipe calls for boneless pork chops, but you can easily use bone-in pork chops, chicken breasts, or even beef tenderloin. Just keep in mind that cooking time will vary depending on the protein you choose.

– Creamy sauce: For a creamier version of the white wine sauce, add heavy cream or sour cream. You can also experiment with different herbs to give the sauce a unique flavor.

– No wine? No problem: If you prefer not to use alcohol in your cooking, you can substitute the wine with chicken broth or vegetable stock.

– Grilled pork: For a summery twist on this recipe, try grilling your pork chops instead of pan-frying them. The smoky flavor will pair perfectly with the white wine sauce.

Remember that cooking is all about experimenting and finding what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to get creative and come up with your own unique version of this delicious recipe!

This dish is easy to prepare, but the end result looks like you slaved over the stove for hours.

To ensure that your pork chops in white wine sauce come out perfectly every time, follow these helpful tips:

First, make sure to season your pork chops generously with salt and pepper before cooking. This will enhance the flavor of the meat and add depth to your dish.

Next, sear your pork chops until they are golden brown on both sides. This step not only gives them a delicious crispy crust but also locks in the juices, keeping the meat tender and moist.

When making the wine sauce, be sure to use a dry white wine that you would actually enjoy drinking. You don’t want to use a wine that is overly sweet or acidic, as this can throw off the flavor of the dish.

Another tip is to use fresh herbs whenever possible. They not only add a pop of color but also give the dish a fragrant aroma and fresh taste. If you don’t have fresh herbs on hand, dried herbs can be used as a substitute.

It’s important to keep an eye on the heat when cooking the mushrooms for the sauce. You want to cook them until they are tender and have released their moisture but be careful not to overcook them, or they can become rubbery.

Lastly, let your pork chops rest for a few minutes before slicing into them. This allows all of the juices to redistribute throughout the meat evenly, making for a more tender and flavorful bite.

By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to mastering the perfect pork chops in white wine sauce recipe every time!

In this section, I will answer some of the most common questions that could arise when cooking this recipe. Keep reading to clear up any doubts and ensure your pork chops with white wine sauce turn out perfectly every time!

What is the best white wine for cooking pork chops?

When it comes to pairing white wines with pork dishes, my go-to choices are Oaky Chardonnay and Chablis. While Oaky Chardonnay complements grilled pork chops perfectly, Chablis, which is produced from Chardonnay grapes in a particular region in France, pairs ideally with pork loins.

What white wine is best for pork sauce?

When it comes to pairing wine with rich and fatty dishes like pork, German Riesling is a top pick. Its high acidity wonderfully complements the richness of the dish, leaving a delightful and lingering taste in every sip. This white wine is perfect for those who prefer a touch of sweetness with a dry finish, making it versatile and an excellent option for various occasions.

Does white wine go with pork chops?

When it comes to accompanying pork, it’s best to opt for a white wine that is full-bodied and rich or a red wine that is fruity and juicy. This is because these types of wines are able to harmonize well with the subtle sweetness that is often present in pork.

What is the best wine to cook pork chops in?

If you’re planning to cook leaner meat cuts like chops or tenderloins, I highly recommend serving it with a light red wine such as Beaujolais or Pinot Noir. You could even try a Chardonnay with a creamy or buttery sauce. Furthermore, Rosés are quite versatile with pork and will complement its flavor with their crispness and light body.

How to make a white wine Sause?

To create a delicious sauce for your pasta or seafood, begin by heating up some olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Throw in some chopped garlic and red pepper, and let them sizzle until they’re golden and fragrant.

Next, it’s time to make your sauce. Add a pinch of salt and pepper to the pan, along with the key ingredient – a generous splash of wine. You can use any type of wine you like, but something with a bit of acidity and fruitiness will work well. Finally, add a knob of butter to round out the flavors and give your sauce a luscious texture.

Let the sauce simmer for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until everything is nicely combined. Then, take it off the heat and toss it with your cooked pasta or seafood of choice. The sauce will cling to the ingredients and infuse them with a delicious flavor, making for a meal that’s both satisfying and indulgent.

What is the secret to juicy pork chops?

As a sommelier, I highly recommend brining pork chops to retain their juiciness. A quick 30-minute brine or up to four hours can make a significant difference in ensuring a moist and flavorful cooked pork chop. So, make sure to brine your pork chops after bringing them home.

Bottom Line
