  • 4- 4(ounce) Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops
  • 1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 14 oz. Can Diced Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 8 oz. Baby Portobello Mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/4 c. Half and Half (or heavy cream)
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
  1. Heat a large stainless steel frying pan over medium high heat and add the oil. 

  2. Season your pork chops with salt and pepper and brown the chops about 3-5 minutes per side depending on how thick they are. 

    *Mine were about 1 1/2"-2" thick and took about 10 minutes to brown them. 

  3. Next, add the fire roasted diced tomatoes (including the liquid) and quartered baby Portobello mushrooms. Stir for about 2-3 minutes until the mushrooms start to soften; then add the half and half. 

  4. Next, cover the pan with a lid, reduce heat to low and allow the pork chops to cook through; which can be anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes depending on the thickness and your preferred level of doneness. 

    *The National Pork Board recommends cooking pork chops to an internal temperature between 145° F (medium rare) and 160° F (medium), followed by a 3-minute rest. My family prefers our pork more on the done side (little to no pink) so with the size of these chops, they took about 20 minutes.
