  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion diced small
  • 8 oz. package white button mushrooms chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 boneless skinless pork chops, about 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 medium lemon zest & juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter divided


  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add onion and mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes, until tender. Add garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.
  • Move the veggies to the side of the pan.
  • Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Add pork chops to the center of the skillet and cook for 4 minutes, until well browned. Turn over and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  • Zest the lemon and top each pork chop with lemon zest and a 1/2 tablespoon pat of butter.
  • Cover the pan and cook for 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature and remove from heat when pork has reached an internal temp of 150.
  • Let the pork chops rest for 10 minutes.
  • Squeeze lemon juice over pork chops and serve with mushroom and onion mixture on top.
