BRINE
  • 3 tbsp Kosher Salt

Instructions
  1. Dissolve salt into water and bring to room temperature; add pork chops and brine for at least half-hour. If brining for more time, place chops in brine and then into a refrigerator. Take out from the fridge a half hour before cooking.
  2. While your meat is brining, cut up bacon and add it to a clean pan on a low heat; cook until crispy for about 5 minutes; set aside;
  3. Wash, dry and cut your mushrooms; heat up butter or ghee and then add your mushrooms. Do not add salt and do not move the mushrooms for about 5 minutes, in order to get a nice sear; after that, mix the mushrooms and add salt and pepper and then cook for another 2-3 minutes; remove from the pan.
  4. Add more ghee or cooking oil to the pan; season your pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides; cover in flour and add to hot pan. Sear pork chops undisturbed for 4 minutes on first side and then 3 minutes on the other side; remove from the pan, set aside and cover with foil;
  5. Add garlic and dried thyme to the pan and cook for a minute until garlic is fragrant but not burned; add wine and deglaze the pan; cook for about 2 minutes until reduced by half;
  6. Add cream, mix and let cook for 2 minutes; then add salt and pepper to taste;
  7. Finally add your pork chops back to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until internal temperature is 145F;
  8. Top your pork chops with mushrooms and bacon and serve. Enjoy.
