Chops with Mushroom Gravy Recipe

After driving my family crazy trying new recipes, I always return to this standby. These moist, comforting pork chops come out great every time. We love the rich gravy over the chops and mashed potatoes. -Loraine Van Broeck, Geneva, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 to 8 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Hot mashed potatoes


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first four ingredients; set aside 3 tablespoons. Add pork chops to bag, one at a time, and toss to coat.

Stir in reserved flour mixture; gradually add milk until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice. Pour over chops.
  • 3. Cover and bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until the meat is tender. Serve with potatoes. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"This is our go to comfort food recipe. The sauce is amazing on mashed potatoes or pasta."

"I am not a pork chop fan, but this recipe is fantastic. The sauce is amazing (even on mashed potatoes). The pork just falls apart in your mouth! I substitute fresh mushrooms for the canned, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly!"

"I made this last night for dinner and my husband and I loved it. I read the reviews first and did as another reviewer suggested and added celery salt and I added a little more lemon juice also.

My chops turned out extra tender...falling apart in your mouth tender! I served it with
garlicmashed potatoes and green beans. I decided to make garlic toast instead of dinner rolls at
thelast minute and it was very good dipped in the gravy. Will definitely be making this again!
I forgot to add that I used fresh mushrooms too, because I don't like canned ones! :-)"

"I made this recipe exactly as specified, and I have been cooking a long time. These were the toughest pork chops I have ever had. Ever. When I made the gravy before putting it on the chops it was nice and thick as it should be. After cooking it was a brothy mess. I have an oven thermometer, it is in working order. I cooked the chops at the correct temperature. I tested the pork with a meat thermometer, it registered at the correct temperature. I took the juices from the pan and made a batch of gravy, adding seasonings to taste. There was no flavor to this recipe, other than from the gravy I made. I took a few bites and scraped my entire plate of food into the trash because I was so disgusted. I will try to salvage this by slicing the pork chops into thin bite-sized portions and cooking in it in a crock-pot with my gravy over the pork. Sorry that my review is so harsh. This is the first bad review I have ever left on any of the cooking websites I use. Usually if I find something I don't like I don't leave a rating at all so I don't drag down the recipe's rating level. But this recipe was really deserving of a poor rating and an explanation as to why I gave it."

"Adults liked it, kids not so much. Didn't have much flavour hot out of the oven, tasted better the next day as left overs:) Really went well with mashed potatoes, and I prefer red over green peppers. I enjoyed making this meal and will make it again."

"Love this recipe. Made it several times, so quick & easy. Also used fresh mushrooms which I sauteed with pepper & onions."

"For those that found the gravy bland, try putting a little celery salt while making the gravy. It's good for any pork roast or pork chop gravy. Just a dash or to taste to bring out the flavor. Just adding regular celery doesn't do it...It has to be celery salt. Good luck!"

"This recipe smelled so good when sauteeing the chops. It turned out way to bland for my liking. I used fresh mushrooms thinking that would give it a better flavor, but I am one who likes ROBUST flavor not bland nearly flavorless... sorry just not a favorite for anyone in our family..."

"The gravy looks beautiful because of the paprika, but I found it to be bland. (I didn't use fresh lemon juice, which might be the reason.) To fix it, I simply added seasoned salt to taste, basil, and two tablespoons of white wine. Like the other reviewers, I used fresh baby bella mushrooms. It's a great way to make pork chops."

"It was good, but a little bland. We like strong flavors. I may add a bit more lemon juice to give it a stronger flavor. BUT The pork chop were super moist and the gravy elevated the mashed potates!"

"Love love love this. Been making it for ages. Great comfort food. And very easy on a weeknight. My only changes (too make it easier) are using pre-chopped, frozen peppers and mushrooms. Also, my husband always wishes there was a little more sauce, so next time may just make 25% more or something. Fabulous on mashed potatoes. We don't eat many potatoes, but this recipe makes us love them!"

"This was not what I expected, but it was still pretty good. The "gravy" reminded me more of a "paprikash" flavor, sans sour cream. But it was still good."

"just YUMMY! We made a half recipe but we wish we had made more gravy. we were also short on green peppers so we added some red. It was a nice color contrast. I think fresh mushrooms would have been better but it was still a good dish. Thanks Loraine VanBroeck"

"I have made this before, but several years ago. I have been thinking of making them again, as the whole family just loves them. But the daunting task of going through about 80 issues to try to find the recipe again was too much.

Then I wondered if TOH kept all the old recipes online. I couldn't remember the name but found the site easy to use by just picking the ingredients section of website. I found it in under 5 minutes! Thanks TOH. My family will love having this recipe for dinner tonight."
