Marsala Pork Chops


I recently wrote a post here about using a whole loin of pork for 9 different meals. In an effort to save money and stretch food, I butcher a large loin into several different cuts of pork.

Marsala Pork Chops is a yummy recipe to use up some of the thin chops cut from the larger loin. Marsala wine is a wine produced around the city of Marsala in Sicily. The wine I use in this recipe is a dry rubino Marsala.

This recipe is fairly simple and quick to make. A perfect meal for a weeknight but fancy enough for guests. I like to serve it with simple steamed broccoli and my quick hasselback potatoes.

Here’s what you will need (serves 4-6):

  • 4-6 boneless thin cut pork chops
  • 1 thinly sliced shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 box pre sliced button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup beef or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup marsala wine
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
