A note about serious food allergies

This meal hues close to the classics, and there's nothing wrong with that; classics are classics for a reason. We know they work, and we know we love them. Buttery, creamy mashed potatoes are practically the dictionary definition of classic food, as are seared-to-perfection pork chops. But the star here is the Djion mushroom pan sauce, a lovely combo of umami, spiky mustard, sweet sherry wine and creamy crème fraiche. Three cheers for the classics.

  1. 1

    Make the Mashed Potatoes

    Peel and cut potatoes into large evenly-sized chunks.

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 13-16 minutes.

    Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add butter, half the crème fraîche (reserve remaining for sauce), and 1/4 tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes cook, prepare ingredients.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thinly slice chives.

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with seasoning blend.

  3. 3

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add pork chops to hot pan. Cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Remove pork chops to a plate and rest, 3 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
