- Over medium heat, heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the pork chops to the hot oil. Place them in a skillet so they don't overlap.
- The chops should be cooked for about 4-5 minutes, depending on their thickness.
- Turn each chop over and continue cooking for another 4-5 mins, or until they reach your desired temperature.
- At least 145 degrees F is the minimum internal temperature for pork. As they rest, their internal temperature will rise by a few degrees. This is a consideration when you decide when to turn off the heat.
- The skillet should be taken off the heat to prevent the drippings from burning. While you are preparing the pork chops, make sure they are covered. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
- Place the pork chops on an aluminum foil-covered plate or pan.
- The skillet should not be washed. Turn the skillet back on medium heat. Once it is melted, add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the mushrooms.
- Stirring frequently, cook the mushrooms for 3 minutes. Add the flour to the mushrooms and mix well. Stirring frequently, cook the mushrooms and flour mixture 1 minute.
- Turn the heat up to medium, and then add the Worcestershire sauce and chicken broth. As you stir, scrape the bottom of your skillet. While stirring, move around the pan in small circles.
- It will take some time for the mushroom sauce to simmer. While it is simmering, stir it every now and again. Reduce the heat to low when it reaches a simmer.
