Easy Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops is one of those “go-to” recipes that is quick, easy and always a success! Perfect for a busy weeknight, these pork chops take under 30 minutes to make. And, for most of that time, they are simmering, covered. So, there’s nothing for you to do but make a side salad or set the table!
This is my niece’s, Tiffany’s, recipe. I’ve tweaked it ever so slightly by adding canned mushrooms. After all, what can be better than a cream of mushroom soup recipe with even more mushrooms! I’m just saying…
In the 20 minutes that is takes to simmer these pork chops, you can cook a pot of rice to serve with them. So, while you are browning the pork chops, put a pot of water on the stovetop to bring to a boil. Then, while these pork chops simmer, your rice can be simmering, too.
As you can see in the photo above, this recipe makes plenty of yummy, saucy mushroom gravy. That’s because after browning the pork chops, you cover them and let them simmer for 20 minutes. The juices from the pork chops add to the mushroom soup making a lip-smacking gravy.
You can easily substitute fresh mushrooms, if you prefer. But, they will take longer to make because you’ll need to prepare the mushrooms (wipe them, slice them) and then saute’ them before adding them to the sauce. So, your dinner will be ready in 45 minutes instead of 30. I don’t use many canned vegetables in my cooking, because I prefer fresh. But, we do keep a stash of canned goods for emergency preparedness and I make it a point to rotate through our canned goods before they expire.
As you can see from these photos, I made these Easy Cream of Mushroom Pork Chops with very thick pork chops. Although they have bones in them, you could use boneless pork loin chops, too. This is what I had in my freezer, so this is what I used.
I would classify this as one of the great pork chop recipes out there because (1) it’s so easy to make, (2) you can have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes and (3) it’s delicious!

- In a small bowl, stir together the Cream of Mushroom soup, milk, garlic, onion, black pepper and drained mushrooms.
- Pour over browned pork chops.
- Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
P.S. I didn’t have anything in the refrigerator for a “garnish”, such as the tops of green onions would be nice with this dish. The garnish in the photos is rosemary. I have a gigantic bush growing in my yard and I thought it would make the photo prettier. But, there is no rosemary in the dish!
