Elegant Pork Marsala Recipe

Wine and mushrooms lend elegance to this oh-so-simple pork dish. Use pre-sliced mushrooms and minced garlic to save time. Cleanup is one-pan easy. —Kim Gillis, High Falls, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 2 turkey bacon strips, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup marsala wine or additional reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 5 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth


  • 1. In a shallow bowl, mix flour and pepper. Dip pork chops in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess.
  • 2. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, heat oil over medium heat. Add pork chops; cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  • 3. In same skillet, add mushrooms, onion and bacon to drippings; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add wine; increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan.
  • 4. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and broth until smooth; add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve with pork. Yield: 6 servings.

"My husband made this for one of our Saturday night dinners. I loved it, and so did he. We made one small change...we used pork tenderloin because that's what we had. Thanks for posting, Kim."

"Loved the turkey bacon in it - wonderful smell, wonderful taste, have put it in my recipe box. I used chicken broth instead of wine. I used extra olive oil when I was preparing the mushrooms, onions and bacon. Every once in awhile I sniff the wonderful smell that it left in my kitchen. Will definitely make it again."

"My boyfreind and I loved!!! this recipe. I bought 8 thin sliced chops. I'm all for healthy, but used regular flour instead. I did though spend the money on the turkey bacon and crisped that up in the microwave first. perfect! I bought the marsala wine at my local grocery store which was a dry & sweet combo. Definitely saving it to my recipe box*****"

"Didn't like the turkey bacon with the pork chop. Maybe my chops were exceptionally lean, but I had no drippings in my pan at all. The bacon did not become crisp (more the texture of rubber bands!) IF I ever made this again, I would eliminate the turkey bacon all together."

"This recipe was delicious. We usually have center cut chops but I purchased the boneless for this recipe and my family loved it. I did not have the wine so I used the extra chicken broth as suggested. It work well. we will certainly have this again."

"It was delicious. I did not have the chops so I made medallions out of a pork tenderloin. Since I did not have any wine, I added about 2 Tbsp of cooking sherry to the chicken broth. I also think I would put a little salt in the flour and pepper mix. I plan to make it again!"
