“Though I lightened the sodium in this delicious pork entree, it’s just as flavorful,” assures Sherri Halloran from Colonial Heights, Virginia. “It’s a quick and easy weeknight dinner.”

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons butter, divided
  • 3/4 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced fresh tarragon

Directions

  • Sprinkle pork chops with pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chops in 1-1/2 teaspoons butter for 4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving. Remove and keep warm.
  • In the same skillet, saute mushrooms in remaining butter for 3-5 minutes or until almost tender. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits. Stir in tarragon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 7-10 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Serve with pork chops.

    This same recipe would be great with chicken breasts. Try it!
