Succulent Pork Chops in Mushroom Sauce

Pork chops are relatively easy to make & need only a quick sear in a hot skillet or a brief sizzle on the grill. I love Pork Chops & it is one of the easiest western dishes you can cook at home.

My mum loves Pork Chop too & I'd prepare this on Mother's Day for my family to enjoy. Despite being at her golden age of 81, I’m glad she’s still able to enjoy a cut of good meat.

You can also find the vegetable nutritional facts etc @ Specialty Produce, featuring this recipe under their Potato (Russet) & Squash (Zucchini, Green) products!

For the sides, I’d chosen Cherry Tomatoes, Zucchinis & Russet Potatoes. Zucchini has a similar shape to cucumber but at S$2 a piece, it is expensive compared to just about 50 cents for a cucumber. Unlike cucumbers, zucchinis are usually served cooked.

The Russet potato is oval & has a brown, or russet-coloured, net-like skin. It should be firm, not soft or spongy & should not have sprouts.
Russet Potatoes make great baked potatoes & are also used to make french fries, potato pancakes or mashed potatoes.

Ingredients:
8 Pork Chops (serves 4)
4 Russet Potatoes
1 Zucchini
12 cherry tomatoes
8 Button mushrooms (thinly sliced)
4 tbsp Sour Cream
4 tsp Bacon bits
4 tsp Butter
1 tsp of Thyme flakes
1 tbsp Extra-virgin Olive Oil
Salt & grounded black pepper

Sauce
(A)
3 tbsp Oyster sauce
1 tsp Goma Shabu
2 tbsp White wine
2 tbsp Bulla cream
2 tbsp water

(B)
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp ground black pepper

Method:
1. Using a meat mallet, pound the pork lightly to tenderize the meat.
2. Marinade pork with thymes, salt & black pepper for at least 30 mins.

3. Meanwhile, rinse and scrub potatoes under cold running water. Pierce the potatoes deeply with a fork or sharp knife, allowing the steam to escape during baking. Rub skins with olive oil or butter & bake the potatoes for about 10 mins, till soft.

4. When potatoes are baked to perfection, slit across the top with a sharp knife. Remove the top part of potatoes, mash it & mix with sour cream.  Add butter into slits & put back potato mixture. Top with bacon bits.
5. Lightly roast the zucchini on a pan, drizzled with olive oil. Brown both sides & put on serving plates together with tomatoes.
6. In a frying pan or skillet, brown pork chops on both sides in olive oil. *Do not cook pork for too long or it'll toughen. Drain & put on serving plates. Place baked potatoes on plates.
7. I love using the Japanese Goma Shabu, a good dipping sauce for meat.
To make sauce, mix all ingredients in a saucepan & bring to boil. Add mushrooms & pepper. Lastly, stir in cornstarch to thicken sauce.
8. Drizzle over pork chops & serve hot.
