Servings: 4



  • 4 thick pork chops
  • 0.5 ounce butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • 0.5 ounce butter
  • 0.25 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 0.5 pound button mushrooms, cut in quarters
  • 1 teaspoon dry tarragon
  • 0.5 cup white wine
  • 1 cup veal stock
  • 0.25 cup heavy cream
  • 0.25 cup gherkins, cut into julienne and blanched
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large pan. Season the chops with salt and pepper, and brown on both sides for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Transfer them to a heated platter and reserve in the oven.
  • Remove excess fat from the pan, add butter and cook chopped onions on low heat. Add mushrooms and tarragon, and sauté on high heat until they start browning a little. Add white wine and stock into the pan, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the cream and simmer until the sauce reduces enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Stir in the mustard, and then return the chops to the pan, basting well. Place the chops in hot plates or on a platter, ladle sauce on top, and sprinkle the parsley over the chops.
