Creamy Parmesan Pork Chops
- 4-5 boneless pork chops approximately 3-4 ounces each
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1½ tablespoons salted butter
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1½ cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- ¾ cup grated parmesan
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter and allow to melt, stirring to coat the pan.
- Sprinkle each pork chop with salt and pepper to taste on both sides.
- Add pork to skillet and cook each side for 4-5 minutes or until both sides are golden brown. Turn off heat and cover with a tight lid. Let the chops sit for 8-10 minutes until fully cooked through. Set aside on a foil tented plate to keep warm.
- Scrape the pan to release all that yumminess, no need to clean the pan.
- Heat pan to medium high heat. Toss garlic in the pan and allow to caramelize for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add in the flour and cream and stir quickly to combine. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 2 minutes.
- Stir in the grated parmesan and fresh parsley, stirring until fully combined and heated through.
- Return pork to the sauce and serve.

Wonderful recipe! This sauce is delicious. I always cook my pork chops in the air fryer the same time I’m making the sauce (personal preference; I find it super easy to cook them this way and no there’s no change to any ingredients). I served this with mashed potatoes and corn. Very good!!
Can you use canned Parmesan cheese or does it need to be fresh grated?
I would have to say for best results that fresh grated is the best option but the canned option will also work! Please let me know how it turned out! Thanks for following along with me!
DELICIOUS! Hands down one of the easiest and best dinners I’ve made.
You still saved me tonight! Dad pulling another one out of his hat! Thank you.
Can you substitute almond or coconut flour
Yes! That will work great with these pork chops! Enjoy!
These are soooo flippin good! I would feed these to company. They are so delicious and you would think they would be difficult to make but nope! They also look elegant. The only thing is how to get the pork chop to be more tender on the stove?
Try not to over cook the pork. Just slow cooking it is best and once it hits the correct temperature then take them off to leave in the juiciness and flavor.
I don’t cook meat very often but this sounds like something my parents would love is there a substitute for the heavy cream (neither parent can have heavy cream)?
For this chicken and sauce the cream makes that sauce rich, thick and creamy. It adds the right amount of flavor for the chicken. You could try cream cheese but I think the texture and text will be altered enough that it would not be the same.
My cream sauce turned into an oil mess after adding the cheese. Why?
OH NO!! I am so sorry! I am not sure why it turned into an oil mess unless it was boiled a little too long. I am sorry to hear this! I hope the pork chops tasted okay! XOXO
Omg. Made this. Only regret is that I didn’t cook more chops!!
OMG!!! This was amazing! Loved it!
This was delicious! We really enjoyed the sauce which can be used with beef or chicken as well. Yum!
Omg they were so delisous and my husband and son loved them and he is a hard man to please with food
I am looking forward to making chops this way. I usually just mmake scalloped potatoes with white
Why not just let them cook through? Don’t they dry out sitting in the pan?
They shouldn’t with the heat off.
These look perfect for my pork and cheese loving house!
That is great! I am so happy you all will enjoy this recipe! XOXO
