Mustard Cream Sauce – only two ingredients and a couple of minutes on the stove. This is our go-to sauce for pork! To make it: bring 1 cup heavy cream to simmer over medium or medium-low heat. Stir in 2 tbsp of whole grain mustard or beer mustard and continue to simmer until it reduces to your desired thickness. See it in action with these cast iron skillet thick pork chops.
Mushroom Cream Sauce with White Wine – this thick sauce is loaded with earthy umami flavors from the mushrooms and brightened by white wine, garlic and fresh parsley. Practically a staple sauce in Bavaria where the locals like to call it a ‘creamy mushroom stew’ and serve it with bread dumplings. Spoon it over pork tenderloin or smother it over skillet pork chops or skillet pork steak. Here is the recipe.
Spicy Chorizo Cream Sauce – especially suitable for leaner cuts of pork – it adds both richness and spice. A delectable way to enjoy it is with boneless pork loin chops – pound them thin, sear on both sides and remove from pan. Then make the sauce (recipe here) and while it simmers to reduce slide in the pork chops to finish cooking and become imbibed with the flavors of chorizo.
