These pork chops with a delicate merlot cream sauce are easy, have few ingredients and are deliciously gourmet.
I had a bottle of nice white merlot handy so I decided I’d try it with these chops. The white variety–which is still red, but a lighter red–isn’t absolutely necessary as you can use the regular darker red version and get a slightly deeper flavor in the sauce.
If you prefer not to use the wine, then a mix of a good and rich-tasting beef and chicken stock would be a very good substitute.Wine/cream sauces are so simple, yet seem to raise any savory dish to a gourmet level.
The sweetness of the cream seems to blend well with the tartness of the wine. This sauce is just gorgeous. You don’t need much more than the garlic and earthy mushrooms to flavor it. If you want to get adventurous, then a pinch or two of your favorite herb would be nice. But just make sure that herb tastes good with pork! For me that’d be thyme.
