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 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.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using ribeye, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 2 and 3, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  1. 1

    Make the Smashed Potatoes

    Cut potatoes into large evenly-sized chunks.

    Bring a medium pot with potatoes covered by water and 1/4 tsp. salt to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 13-16 minutes.

    Reserve 1/2 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    Add butter, half the crème fraîche (reserve remaining for sauce), half the potato cooking water, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. If too thick, add potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.

    While potatoes cook, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut mushrooms into 1/4" slices.

    Thinly slice chives.

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with seasoning blend and a pinch of salt.

  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, 3-5 minutes per side.

    Thickness may vary. If you receive a thinner pork chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

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

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook pork chops to medium-high heat.

    Add 1 tsp. olive oil and mushrooms to hot pan. Stir occasionally until beginning to brown and juices release, 1-2 minutes.

    Add sherry wine and cook until reduced by half, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in mustard, remaining crème fraîche, and a pinch of salt and pepper until combined and smooth.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
