What a hit this pork, potato and mushroom dish is for under 400 calories!
I love meals that come together in one skillet. This skillet contained creamy yukon gold potatoes, tender pork and mushrooms in an earthy herb sauce.
Be sure and use a wine you would drink when you’re making the sauce for this potato and pork recipe. Bad wine makes for a bad sauce!
Happy, healthy cooking!
- 1 pound boneless pork chops, cut into 1" strips
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pound yukon gold potatoes, small, quartered
- 2 large garlic cloves minced
- ½ cup dry white wine
- ½ cup low sodium chicken broth
- 4 ounces mushroom , sliced
- 2 tablespoons thyme, minced
- ¼ cup parsley, chopped
- ½ small onion, chopped
- 1. Put potatoes in a casserole dish, cover and cook on high in microwave for 8 minutes until just barely tender. You don't want them too soft as you will continue to cook them in the skillet.
- 2. Heat non-stick skillet over medium heat with oil, add onions and saute for 3 - 4 minutes until softened. Add garlic, mushrooms, and potatoes. Saute 3 - 4 minutes.
- 3. Move potatoes and onions to the side of the skillet and add pork. Saute pork for 4 - 5 minutes.
- 4. Add chicken broth, wine, thyme, parsley and salt and pepper to your taste.
- 5. Saute 5 - 8 minutes until liquid is reduced by three quarters.
