Creamy Mushroom and Tarragon Pork Chops

Servings 4 people


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 4 6-oz. boneless pork chops
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped white button mushrooms


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat.
  • Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Season pork chops evenly with tarragon; add to skillet and brown for 3 minutes per side; remove from pan and keep warm.
  • Reduce skillet heat to medium and add broth, whisking up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Return pork chops to the skillet then stir in evaporated milk, onion and mushrooms.
  • Reduce skillet heat to low; cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until chops are cooked through and sauce has thickened slightly, adding more broth, if needed.
