Skillet Pork Chops with Mushrooms and Green Beans

Looking for a 30 minute meal? I have you covered! This recipe features garlic and herb pork chops from AdapTable Meals that come perfectly seasoned (one less thing you need to worry about!) and are paired with perfectly cooked mushrooms and green beans (my favorite garden veggie!).

This meal is fast, easy to make, and my whole family loves it. You can round out the meal with some corn on the cob, a baked potato, or even sweet potato fries.

I’m working with AdapTable Meals on this post and using their Garlic and Herb boneless pork loin chops. I love these chops because they are extra tender, full of flavor (they come dry rubbed and ready to cook!), and they always turn out moist and tender for me.

Using AdapTable Meals pre-seasoned meats has helped to make dinner simple and quick in my house and I know that you’ll love any thing you try from them too.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you cook pork chops so they don’t try out?

The key to moist pork is to not over cook it! And the best way to know if meat is cooked through is to know what’s going on on the inside. And the best way to know that is a thermometer. I highly recommend using a thermometer to check the internal temperature of your pork chops so that you can remove them from the heat once they have reached 145 degrees internally.

What vegetable goes with pork chops?

I think green beans and mushrooms go great with pork and that’s why I added them to this recipe. A baked sweet potato or some potatoes au gratin would be amazing with this meal too.

How long do pork chops take to cook?

I love AdapTable Meals pork chops because they are a nice thin but even size and they take 4-5 minutes per side to quick! They are so quick to make and always packed with flavor and tender.

Skillet Pork Chops with Mushrooms and Green Beans

Summer is here, so let’s make a quick meal that won’t heat up your kitchen! This skillet pork chop recipe with a side of mushrooms and green beans is one that I make often and my whole family loves.
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Servings: 4

Ingredients 

Instructions 

  • Rinse your green beans and then add them to a medium saucepan. Cover them with water and heat the water over high heat until boiling. When the beans are boiling, reduce the heat to medium-high and cover with a lid.
  • While the beans are cooking add the mushrooms to a large 10-12 inch skillet (cast iron preferred) and cook over medium to medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. After a few minutes of cooking the mushrooms will start to release some of their moisture, keep cooking. Cook the mushrooms until all of the moisture they have released has been cooked off and the pan looks dry again, this takes roughly 8-10 minutes of cooking. 
  • When the pan looks dry again, reduce the heat to medium and add the butter. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally. 
  • Heat another skillet over medium to medium high heat and add the olive oil to the skillet.
  • Cook the pork chops, covered, in the skillet for 2-2 1/2 minutes per side, until the pork reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer.
  • After the beans have boiled for about 20 minutes, check them for tenderness. You want them to be tender crisp. Let them cook for an additional 5 minutes if they aren’t quite done and if they are, drain them well.
  • When the pork is done cooking, remove it from the pan and let it rest for 1-2 minutes. 
  • When the beans are done cooking and drained, add them to the skillet with the mushrooms and stir to combine. Add plenty of salt and pepper to the mushrooms and green beans in the skillet.
  • Serve the hot pork chops with the buttery mushrooms and green beans on the side.

Notes

  • These pork chops do really well on the grill! Just cook them on the grill for 2-2 1/2 minutes per side, until the pork reaches 145°F on a meat thermometer.
  • Don’t be stingy with the salt and pepper on your green beans and mushrooms, it really helps to elevate the buttery vegetables without over complicating them.
  • This is the BEST way to cook mushrooms. Too often folks add liquid or fat to them too soon and it almost steams them. Let them cook out their own liquid and then add the fat so that they almost fry in the butter. They are SO good. 
  • You don’t have to add the green beans to the mushrooms but they’re so good coated in the buttery goodness the mushrooms cooked in too.
  • Don’t love green beans? You can add ⅔ of a pound of chopped asparagus to the mushroom pan after the butter melts. Just cook until the asparagus is tender crisp.
