  • 1/8 ounce dried wild mushrooms, such as morels, mixed Italian etc.
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • cooking spray
  • 4 center-cut boneless loin pork chops, 4 ounces each, all fat removed
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 3 ounces fresh oyster or shiitake mushrooms
  • ½ cup canned fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ cup dry white wine
  • 2 thyme sprigs


  1. In a bowl, place the dried mushrooms and cover with boiling water. Follow package directions to dehydrate.
  2. Drain the mushrooms. Reserve 1/4 cup of the mushroom soaking liquid.
  3. Lightly coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Add the chops and cook uncovered for about 5 minutes over medium heat. Turn the chops, season with pepper, reduce heat, and cook for another 8 to 9 minutes. Transfer the chops to a plate, cover, and keep warm.
  4. Recoat the same skillet with cooking spray and add both the dried and the fresh mushrooms. Sauté for 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Raise the heat, and add the chicken broth, wine, reserved mushroom soaking liquid, and thyme.  Bring to a boil and reduce the liquid by half.
  6. To serve, spoon the mushrooms and sauce over the pork chops.
