2 pork chops with bones, about 2 cm thick   360 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
1 1/2 tbsp Parsley and Garlic Base (Recipe)   23 mL
  aluminum foil    
1/2 tbsp margarine non-hydrogenated   7 g
1/4 cup chicken broth   65 mL
2 tsp Dijon mustard   10 mL

Before you start

Keep the individual serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Prepare the mushrooms: slice them thinly lengthwise. Finely chop the shallots. Pat the pork chops dry.
  2. Heat half of the oil in a skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté the mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until the released liquid is evaporated, about 3 min. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base, then cook an additional 2 min, with stirring. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the skillet from the heat and keep warm in the oven.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in another skillet over moderately high heat. When the oil is hot, add the chops and brown 2 min on each side. Transfer the pork chops to a plate, then set them aside in the oven, loosely covered with foil.
  4. Meanwhile, add the margarine to the pork skillet, then cook the shallots over moderately high heat, with stirring, until softened, 3-4 min. Add the broth and boil 2 min, scraping up any brown bits. Add the mustard and soy preparation, return the mixture to a boil, then add the lemon juice. Return the pork chops to the skillet. Simmer, uncovered, until the sauce is slightly thickened and the meat is cooked, 3-4 min. Transfer the mushrooms to the pork skillet, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve on the warmed plates.
