Normally I have bone-in pork chops, but all I had on hand at the moment was a big piece of pork tenderloin. We get a whole big one from Costco, around 8-10 pounds, and divide it up in the freezer to use for some great slow cooker meals; like one of my favorites Trisha Yearwood Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin. But I had a taste for pork chops, sorry slow cooker.

We like to keep changing things up, so I thought why not cut up one of these big tenderloin pieces into some really nice and thick pork chops. Something that you can really sink your teeth into. Well let me tell you, I didn’t miss having the bone-in pork chops for these bad boys, but you could definitely use bone-in if that’s what you’ve got on hand. Either way you can’t go wrong with this recipe, because it’s packed with flavor, and you don’t need many ingredients to make it happen.

Another bonus is that when cooking with wine, you can pretend you’re Julia Child. Go ahead and tip that bottle in to your glass as your cooking, that always makes for a bit more fun!

We had a one of her chicken dinners a while back that turned out way better than I even expected. It was Coq Au Vin, which is just chicken in red wine with mushrooms, onions and bacon. Like these Pork Chops in Creamy Wine Sauce, it’s something good for entertaining or for date night at home. Even if it’s for the whole family, you don’t have to worry because the alcohol cooks out of it.

Do you have any secret recipes that you use for a date night at home? I would love to hear what you have made up in the comments.

Pork Chops in Creamy Wine Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops (or bone-in)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Creamy Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 lemon (juice of fresh lemon)
  • 1/2 cup chicken or beef broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  1. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tbs. butter and let it melt.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, pepper and ½ tsp garlic powder ½ tsp onion powder in a shallow bowl or large plate.
  3. In a separate bowl combine: salt, pepper and ½ tsp garlic powder ½ tsp onion powder; this is our seasoning mix. Season the pork chops with this mix first.
  4. Dredge pork chops in seasoned flour mixture, shake off excess flour.
  5. Brown pork chops well on both sides, about 7-8 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium and let simmer while you gather ingredients for the sauce. When internal temp is 165 or no pink juices, remove from pan and set aside.
  6. In the same pan you browned the chops, return skillet to heat, add 2 tablespoons butter and minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes on low medium heat. Add flour to the butter mixture and start pouring in wine on medium heat - about 1 minute.
  7. Next squeeze lemon into the pan, add broth, Italian seasoning and heavy cream or milk. Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary. Let simmer a couple minutes to thicken, if it gets to thick add a tiny bit more broth or cream.
  8. Plate up your chops, and pour the sauce over them.
