Grandma’s Pork Chops in Mushroom Gravy

This is a dish that my grandmother many times when we would go to her house for Sunday dinner. It brings back such memories of the whole family sitting around the table and then laughing deep into the evening after we moved to the back porch.

Just kidding….the recipe came with the Grandma’s name already attached. As I lived thousands of miles away from both grandmothers, the Sunday dinners were few and far between!

OK. I made the story up, but the chops are well worth it!

Grandma’s Pork Chops in Mushroom Gravy

Prep Time: 15 M | Cook Time: 1 H | Servings: 6 servings


1 tablespoon butter
1 clove garlic, pressed
6 pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 (8 ounce) can mushrooms, drained
1 cup dry sherry
1 (10.5 ounce) can beef broth
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, and saute until fragrant. Season pork chops with salt and pepper, then fry them in the skillet just until browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Remove the pork chops to a baking pan or Dutch oven.

Pour the mushrooms into the skillet with the pork drippings and garlic, and stir in the sherry and beef broth, scraping any bits of pork that are stuck to the pan. Bring to a boil, then pour over the pork chops in the baking pan. Cover with a lid, or aluminum foil.

Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, then remove the lid or foil, and continue to bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the chops from the pan to a serving platter, and place the dish on the stove over medium heat. Stir together the cornstarch and water. When the juices in the pan come to a boil, slowly stir in the cornstarch mixture and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Spoon sauce over the chops, and serve.
