Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops

Juicy pork chops covered in a creamy sauce flavored with garlic, sliced mushrooms and spinach. For a tasty family meal, you can’t beat these Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops. And it can be on the table in under 30 minutes.

Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops

The sauce covering these pork chops is truly delicious. What I like most about this sauce is the large amount of thick, creamy sauce. It’s great served over mashed potatoes, rice, or noodles. Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops make a filling meal that even the kids will enjoy. Ok, they might pick out the spinach and mushrooms.

Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops with mushrooms

I like to use the thick-cut pork chops. They seem to cook up more tender and juicier.

This sauce would also be great with chicken.

If you wanted to add a little heat, just add a few pinches of red pepper flakes.

Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops with Garlic

Not only is the sauce creamy and rich, but it has lots of garlic flavor. I add both a clove of garlic and some garlic powder. Why use both? I think they have totally different flavors. If you have a preference for one over the other, just double up on it and skip the other one.

  1. This is so delicious! And the recipe is easy to follow. I added in some Tony Cachere’s Cajun seasoning and some crushed red pepper to make it spicy.

    Good recipe. I needed to make some changes because I had thick, boneless pork pieces. First I cut the thick pieces in half (length-wise) and washed and patted them dry. Then, sprinkled a jarred mixture of sea salt, garlic powder, and rosemary. Covered and refrigerated for 3 hours. Browned pork as in recipe, then cooked them further (covered) with Pinot wine and chicken broth. To save time I also added the garlic, onion, and canned mushrooms. Medium-low for at least 30 minutes. The pork was no longer pink and easy to pierce with a fork. Removed from pan, added flour mixed w/broth and half-and-half. Used spinach/arugula mixture. Hope these changes are clear.

    Absolutely loved this!! My kids even liked it. I usually only like pork chops breaded and fried but this has for sure changed that! Thank you!
