Pork Chops in a Creamy Champagne Sauce

This a great recipe when you want something different and special. We like it for an everyday day type of meal. No need to splurge on the champagne, we use Korbel or something like that. It isn't expensive and still has a good taste to drink with our meal. The original recipe is located here.

Pork Chops in Creamy Champagne Sauce

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

6 pork loin chops (about 5 ounces each)

1/4 cup chopped shallots

2 teaspoons dried thyme

1 teaspoon dried tarragon

1 cup sparkling wine or dry Champagne

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork with salt and black pepper and add to hot pan. Cook 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove pork from pan and set aside.

To the same pan, add shallots and cook 2 minutes, until soft. Add thyme and tarragon and cook 1 minute, until fragrant. Add sparkling wine and cook 1 minute.

Whisk flour into milk and add to pan. Return pork to pan and simmer 3 to 5 minutes, until pork is cooked through and sauce thickens.

Serve the pork with the sauce.

I made broccoli and rice to go along side. The sauce tastes good over everything we made to go with the pork! Enjoy!
