This traditional Danish pork chops recipe is amped up with the addition of provolone cheese. The chops are crispy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside. The elegant mushroom cheese sauce creates a great balance of flavor. We loved the ease of making these pork chops and can't wait to make them again. They are easy enough for a weeknight meal for the family but fancy enough that you can serve for company. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Pork Chops: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Place bread crumbs onto a plate and mix in the salt and pepper. Whisk egg in a pie plate. Dip the pork chops into the egg and then into the bread crumbs (both sides for each).
  3. Heat the butter in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add the pork chops and brown well on both sides.
  4. Put in an oven-safe casserole dish and drizzle the pan juices over them. Cover and bake for about 45-50 minutes.
