Classic Pork Chop Marsala always turns out tender, juicy, and delicious when cooked with a sweet marsala wine sauce.  And my husband gets it right every time.  A Southern Italian recipe, these boneless pork chops are first seared then simmered with a sauce made with mushrooms, onions, and marsala wine.  It’s the perfect dish to serve for date night, special occasion, or intimate soiree.  

 

Pork Chops are wonderful to make this time of year, especially when you can easily make them on stove-top and in one skillet. 

This dish is not complicated.  In fact, we’ll show you how to make this dish with ease.  And with our recipe, the pork chops will always turn out tender and delicious tasting. 

 

 

 Tips and Notes To Make Classic Pork Chop Marsala:

  • First, What Kind of Pork Chops Should You Buy?  The best pork chops to buy are center-cut, boneless pork chops. 

  • For the best quality, always buy pork chops at your local butcher shop or at Whole Foods.  They are not as expensive as everyone may think. 

  • The pork chops need to be at least 1-inch thick.  Keep in mind, if they are less than one inch, you will need less time to cook them. 

  •  Italian Sweet Marsala Wine can be purchased at any local liquor store or at the Costco liquor store (photo below).  It’s not expensive, and it contains alcohol.  It’s a sweet wine that blends well with the onions, mushrooms, and olive oil.

Serve these pork chops with a side of our Best Creamy Mashed Potatoes and some crusty bread.  Or serve with polenta, or maybe with our Oven Steak Fries, or Oven-Fried Sweet Potatoes along with our Sweet Garden Peas to complete a delicious dinner!

A great wine to pair with this Pork Chop Marsala is one with a deep red color and robust flavor.  A Sicilian wine called Nero Davola, would be a fine choice to pair with this exquisite dinner.  

And ENJOY!!

5.   Transfer the onions and mushrooms back into the skillet, on top and around the sides of the pork chops.  Pour in the remaining Marsala wine.  Cover and simmer on low heat for an additional 5 to 8 minutes, until the wine reduces.  Slice into one pork chop, to make sure it is cooked to your desired preference.  If they are cooked to your liking, then transfer to a serving platter, and top with the mushroom and onions over the top and around the chops.  Then serve.
