Smothered pork

Hi Everyone!

I love using my oven when cooking and I absolutely love mushrooms!

So when my friend Sally posted this recipe for smothered porkchops on her website, I simply had to try it. I wasn’t disappointed: I loved it the first time and made it many times since, tweaking the original recipe a bit depending on what herbs I had in my cupboard.

It’s a very easy dish to make after a busy day at work.

Why don’t you give it a go? Let me know in the comments below how you liked it.

Happy cooking!
