You had me at “mushroom”

Now tell me this doesn’t look all kinds of delicious…Pork Chops with Burboun Mushroom Cream Sauce.

Can’t wait to try it.



Tried it and found it to be too much work for too little reward.  I subbed probably more than I should have and didn’t time the sauteeing of the mushrooms, making the sauce, browning the chops just right, so I ended up with a lukewarm, soggy, and not-very-saucy final product. 

Not a fan of much pork anyway, so I probably won’t make this again.
