It only looks like we’re getting fancy around here with these Pork Chops in Creamy Wine Sauce, but this dish is so quick and easy that anyone can make this incredibly delicious dinner in no time at all!
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.
