Succulent pork chops smothered in a rich, creamy mushroom sauce flecked with fresh herbs are a real treat. This is a special occasion-worthy dish, but it is surprisingly simple to make. And as if a show-stopper dish that’s easy to pull off weren’t enough, it’s low in carbs to boot. Make this for a holiday meal, a dinner party, or just any time you feel like making an everyday meal feel like a celebration.
Pork chops are a delicious protein on which to base low-carb meals. They are quite lean, though, which means they can quickly dry out during high-heat cooking. Braising them in a creamy sauce like this keeps them moist and succulent while infusing them with flavors from the mushrooms and herbs.
