Pork Loin Chops with Spinach and Mushrooms
This dish would make a perfect lunch or dinner with the whole family especially if you all love spinach and mushroom. Pork loin chops with spinach and mushrooms combo are one of my favorite dishes to make when I have too much going on in my day because it’s quick and easy.
It only takes 30 minutes or less to cook this depending on the thickness of the pork and the great thing about this dish is you only need pork chops, spinach, mushrooms, onions, and butter. It’s a low-cost meal to enjoy.
Additional Tips and Instructions:
There should be enough oil produced after frying the pork. Don’t throw it, use it for sauteing the onions. You can also add garlic if you wish to. If the pork chop you are going to use is lean, you can use vegetable oil instead of butter.
Don’t overcook the pork chops because they turn dry and tough to bite. When in doubt, use a cooking thermometer. The pork is done when the temperature is 145°F or 63°C. You can also substitute the pork with chicken or beef.
This recipe makes around 5-7 servings.
