Love them or hate them, mushrooms have been a staple food in our diets for hundreds of thousands of years.

These wild vegetables were prized in Ancient Rome and Greece, though it took longer for them to catch on in America.

It’s thought that the first mushrooms were eaten in the US in the early 1800s.

The first known mushrooms featured in a cookbook was back in 1824, in a book called “The Virginia Housewife” (I know, imagine a book being called that today).

Since then, mushrooms have become widely popular, and are considered the “meat” of vegetables. They vary widely in size, shape, and color, but their nutritional value (of which there is plenty) largely stays the same.

Hopefully, you’re a mushroom lover because they’re a key ingredient in this delicious recipe.

Next, place the pork chops in the pan on medium-high heat. Sear them until they cook all the way through. Depending on the size of the pork chops you have, you can expect this to take around three minutes on either side.

Once you’ve cooked the pork chops, put them to the side on a plate.

Step 3: Fry The Veggies

Now it’s time to fry the mushrooms. Add more oil if needed, then add the mushrooms. Fry until they’ve released their water and shrunk in size. They should be golden brown.

Once the mushrooms are ready, add the onion and garlic to the pan and sautee until they’re lightly brown, soft, and fragrant.

Step 4: Bring Your Ingredients Together

Next, add the flour and stir until the ingredients are evenly coated. Pour in the beef broth, then turn up the heat and bring to a boil. Wait until the salt thickens, then season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5: Add The Pork Chops
