Pork Chops or Ribs: This recipe calls for either pork chops or pork ribs, depending on your preference. I recommend medium-cut pork chops or pork loin chops, which are bone-in for added flavor.

Champagne Sauce: The star of this dish is the creamy champagne sauce that pairs perfectly with the tender pork. You’ll need sparkling wine, champagne mustard, heavy cream, and chicken stock to make this luxurious sauce.

Garlic, Lemon and Ginger Juice: These three juices add depth to the sauce and complement the hearty pork perfectly. Don’t skip these flavorful ingredients.

Cornflour: This ingredient will help thicken the sauce to a perfect consistency.

Chinese Five Spice Powder: This blend of spices adds a touch of exotic flavor to the classic dish. If you don’t have it on hand, you can make your own by mixing cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns.

Olive Oil: You’ll need this ingredient to brown the pork chops and give them a crispy outer crust.

Salt and Pepper: Don’t skimp on seasoning the meat with salt and pepper before cooking! This will ensure maximum flavor in every bite.

Red Potatoes: This dish pairs beautifully with some mashed red potatoes, which add a pop of color and texture to your plate.

Step 1: Prepare the Pork Chops

For this recipe, you can use either pork ribs or pork loin chops. If using pork ribs, remove the membrane from the bone side of the ribs. For pork loin chops, season them with salt and pepper on both sides.

Step 2: Make Champagne Sauce Rustic Garlic

In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon of potato starch, 1 tablespoon of arrowroot, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Add in lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic juice, ginger juice, Chinese five-spice powder, cornflour, and bicarbonate of soda.

Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add a little bit of oil. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant, then add champagne mustard and whisk in chicken stock or water. Add soy sauce and cook over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes until thickened. The sauce should be creamy and similar in consistency to a gravy.

Step 3: Cook the Pork Chops

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Once hot, add the pork chops or ribs and cook for 6 minutes per side until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F. For a fuller flavor profile, consider grilling your pork chops instead with some tarragon on top!

Step 4: Make Creamy Champagne Sauce

While the pork is cooking, prepare the creamy champagne sauce by combining champagne, olive oil, sweet and sour sauce in a small bowl. Stir well until well combined.

Serve the cooked pork chops hot with mashed potatoes topped with rustic garlic sauce or grilled vegetables on the side. Drizzle with creamy champagne sauce on top for extra flavor!

When it comes to substitutions and variations for this pork ribs or chop with champagne sauce recipe, there are plenty of options to choose from. If you’re looking for a different meat to use instead of pork, this recipe can easily be adapted to use chicken or beef. You could also try substituting the champagne for another sparkling wine or even a dry white wine of your choice.

For those who prefer a sweeter sauce, you could add a bit more sugar and skip the Chinese five spice powder, while those who like it spicier can add some chili flakes or hot sauce.

If you don’t have potato starch or arrowroot on hand (used as a thickening agent), cornstarch is an easy substitute. And if soy sauce isn’t your cup of tea, you could swap it out with coconut aminos or tamari for a gluten-free option.

For vegetarians or vegans, you could switch the pork chops for portobello mushrooms and make a creamy champagne sauce using cashew cream instead of heavy cream.

There are many variations that can be made depending on what ingredients are in your pantry and what tastes best to you. Don’t be afraid to experiment and create new flavor combinations that suit your preferences!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 Perfect for a romantic dinner or a fancy dinner party.
Perfect for a romantic dinner or a fancy dinner party.

While this pork rib / chop with champagne sauce recipe is best served fresh, there are some options for making it ahead of time or storing leftovers if you have any.

If you want to make the recipe ahead of time, you can prepare the pork chops or ribs according to the instructions in section (4) The Recipe How-To. Once cooked and covered, these can be refrigerated for about 3-4 days. To reheat, place them in an oven heated to 350°F for about 15-20 minutes or until heated through.

The creamy champagne sauce can be made 1-2 days in advance and refrigerated separately, then reheated on low heat while whisking constantly until it reaches the desired consistency, adding a small amount of water or chicken stock if needed.

If you have any leftover sauce or pork, store them separately in airtight containers for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Reheat the pork using the same method as above and reheat chilled sauce on low heat while whisking constantly.

Do not freeze the cooked pork chops or ribs with sauce as the texture will become mushy upon defrosting. However, you can freeze just the cooked pork chops or ribs without sauce, and reheat them in a 350°F oven for 20-30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with freshly-made champagne sauce for best results.

Tips for Perfect Results

To ensure perfect results when making this pork chops or ribs recipe, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Firstly, monitor the internal temperature of the meat carefully. It is important to cook the pork chops or ribs to an internal temperature of 145°F/63°C. This will guarantee that the meat is thoroughly cooked and safe for consumption.

Secondly, when coating the pork chops or ribs in the potato starch and cornflour mixture before deep frying, make sure that they are evenly coated. This will ensure that they achieve a crispy texture when fried.

Thirdly, do not overcrowd the pan when deep frying. This will prevent the temperature of the oil from dropping too much and make it difficult for the pork to cook evenly. Fry the chops or ribs in batches if necessary.

Fourthly, for a tangier flavor, add more lemon juice or consider using lime juice instead for a unique twist. Be sure to adjust other ingredients appropriately to maintain flavor balance.

Fifthly, for a healthier option, consider baking or grilling the pork chops or ribs instead of deep frying them. This not only reduces calories intake but also creates a different texture and taste.

Lastly, when making the champagne sauce, be patient when whisking in the olive oil to create an emulsion. Whisk slowly and steadily until combined correctly. Moreover, continuos whisking as it heats on low heat helps guarantees correct consistency.

By following these tips, you can ensure a perfectly cooked pork chop or rib dish with creamy champagne sauce rustic garlic that is full of flavor and sure to impress your guests!


Many readers usually have questions concerning recipes, and this recipe is no exception. I have compiled some of the frequently asked questions and provided answers to help clarify any doubts or confusion that might arise while cooking pork ribs or chops with champagne sauce.

What is champagne sauce made of?

To create a delectable sauce, combine mayonnaise, sparkling wine, sour cream, mustard, Parmesan, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, salt, and pepper. Mix thoroughly and heat in the microwave for around 20 seconds. Once warm, add chopped chives and stir the contents before serving with Oven-Steamed Salmon for an unforgettable culinary experience.

How long does it take to cook a pork chop?

When preparing thin pork chops on high to medium-high heat, cooking them for 2 to 3 minutes per side ensures an even brown color and thorough cooking. However, for thicker chops, browning on both sides and relying on a digital thermometer to measure the internal temperature is necessary. Up to 5-6 minutes per side might be needed to ensure full cook through.
