Pork Chops in Creamy Shallot Sauce

Next to Ina Garten and Martha Stewart, Robin Miller (Quick Fix Meals with Robin Miller on the Food Network) is one of my favorite TV chefs.  I love the practicality of her “cook once, eat twice” and pre-fix meal philosophies.  If you work full time, you know how hard it is to rush home, pick up the kid(s) and get dinner on the table before the natives go ape-crazy!

I’ve found Robin’s concepts essential when preparing home cooked meals for my family after a long day at work.  I usually do a lot of my dinner prep work for the week on Sundays.  I find that if I invest 1-2 hours getting everything prepared and organized, I can get great dinners (like this Pork Chop recipe) on the table in no time flat! 

Is it a Keeper?

These chops were really great! Even though it sounds elegant, this recipe was unbelievably quick and simple!   It’s so fast that it falls in my Quick Dinners and One Pot Meal categories.  This recipe can also be presented beautifully — I would serve it at a dinner party!

It makes a fantastic sauce that is great over rice (like we had) or mashed potatoes.  I was amazed at how beautifully creamy it was.  I was skeptical that it wouldn’t thicken much at first, but was quite impressed when everything finished cooking!

I have found, though, that not all grocery stores carry shallots — which are part of the onion family and are small and purplish with a very mild onion flavor.  If your grocery store has a great produce section, you should be able to find them there.    If you can’t find shallots, you could try using a smaller amount (maybe an 1/8 cup) of finely chopped sweet onion.

Definitely a keeper!  I’ll be making it again.  Soon.

    • I would use a dry white wine that you would drink, like chardonnay. I hope you like it! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Greeting from CA. I recently found your blog and I am so glad I did! I find so many food blogs to be pretentious and I really enjoy your easy-going, approachable style to food & family. ๐Ÿ™‚

    One question (I’m a total novice in the kitchen)… how do you think your creamy shallot sauce would pair with chicken rather than pork? Pork can be a tough sell in our house. Thank you for your time.

    • Awww, thank you for the kind words!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad that you like what you’ve read! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I think the sauce would be fantastic on chicken! It’s a great versatile sauce! Give it a shot and let me know how you make out! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Good luck!

  2. This turned out very good! We didn’t have any tarragon – so we used anise seed – still – so yummy! I had to make myself stop eating the rice with the sauce on it! Thanks for sharing!
