Recipe Ingredients:

8 boneless pork top loin chops, thin, 1/2-inch thick (about 1 1/2-pounds)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper, coarsely ground
1/4 cup olive oil, (4 tablespoons)
12 cloves garlic, minced (2 tablespoons)
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 cups dry Riesling wine
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, (about 1 lemon)
1/2 cup heavy cream

Cooking Directions:

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half of the chops. Brown chops quickly for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  2. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and chops and remove from skillet.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low; add garlic to skillet. Cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until tender and moist. Remove skillet from heat.
