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.
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.
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.
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.
