Na na na na jamboree

Thatboy: What are we having for dinner tonight?
Me: Pork chops.
Thatboy: But we had pork chops for dinner last night, and the night before that!
Me: Well then it sounds like you would be a very lucky boy if you liked pork chops.

Luckily he does like pork chops, and luckily I've been making them in varied ways: burnt, roasted, and tonight covered in sauce. I'm nothing if not inventive and creative. But I hate having cream in the fridge just sitting there and going bad so I thought a cream sauce would be a good way to use it up. And I might have gone a little over board making these "Sauce with porkchops" instead of "Porkchops with sauce." At least the sauce was good! And a warm crusty piece of bread always comes in handy with something this saucy!

Sauce with Pork chops
  • 4-6 thin sliced pork chops
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 squirt ketchup
  • 1 squirt Worcestershire sauce
  • splash of wine
  1. In a skillet over medium high heat, cook pork chops in butter, 3 minutes per side.
  2. Place onions on top of pork chops.
  3. Combine cream, milk, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, and wine in small bowl and stir until smooth.
  4. Pour mixture over porkchops. Cover, lower heat, and cook for 30 minutes.


  1. That sauce is a good addition! I like you versions of pork chops one of them being burnt. Mine would be burnt, dry, drier, leather. I never have luck with pork chops so I think the sauce would be a good idea for me!

  2. I can't even see the pork chops under there, but that sauce sure sounds delicious!

  3. I wish I liked pork chops. Maybe I'll try this with chicken.

  4. Haha I like the idea of sauce with porkchops. Similar things have happened to me on various occasions.

  5. i love sauce with food. food with sauce? either way, it's all good.

  6. ThatBoy is lucky, he has someone who loves to cook for him.

  7. that boy sure is lucky! hehe. I looove pork chops and yours looks yum!

  8. I like a little pork chops with my sauce. That is always the best part!!

  9. This is exactly how I would like my pork chops - covered in sauce- since I always, ALWAYS dry them out and overcook them!

  10. What a yummy sauce for the pork chops! My pork chops always come out so dry, so this would be the perfect sauce to top them with :).

  11. You know, I could probably just eat sauce and bread for dinner and be a happy woman, I love sauces so much. And add a little pork? Even happier.

    If you have some pork and cream lying around again, I have a really good curry pork chops and curry sauce recipe that is great.

  12. I've been stuck on pork this week too. I just tell the boys it's chicken~

  13. Update please! It's been a week!
