Ingredients
  1. 4 center cut pork chops
  2. 8oz sliced mushrooms
  3. 1 cup meat stock
  4. ½ cup Pinot Noir–any other dry red will work
  5. 4 cloves of garlic, smushed into oblivion
  6. ¼ tsp ground ginger
  7. 3 Tb butter
  8. olive oil
  9. Kosher salt
  10. pepper
  11. bay leaf
Instructions
  1. Turn your oven on to 425 degrees.
  2. Salt and pepper both sides of your pork chops.
  3. In an OVEN SAFE skillet, brown both sides of the pork chops in a bit of olive oil. Make sure you don’t crowd the pan or you’ll end up with a liquidy mess and no browning. Don’t worry about cooking them through; you’re going for color, not doneness.
  4. Remove the chops to a plate and tent with aluminum foil.
  5. Add 2 Tb of butter to the pan and then your mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms until they’re golden brown.
  6. Add the smushed garlic and ground ginger and cook for about 30 seconds or until you can smell the garlic.
  7. Pour in the meat stock and wine. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon until the bottom of the pan is clean.
  8. Nestle in your pork chops and place in the oven–uncovered–for 45 minutes.
  9. Once time is up, use a thermometer to make sure the temperature of the meat is at least 145 degrees. I know! I didn’t say 160!
  10. Remove the pork back to its plate and put the pan on the stove over high heat.
  11. Add your bay leaf and let the liquid reduce by about ½.
  12. Add a Tb of butter to the pan to finish the sauce and remove the bay leaf.
  13. Yum!
