Pork with Mustard and Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce - Gluten and Cow's Milk Dairy Free

This Pork with Mustard and Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce has become one of my husbands favorite dishes lately.  It is one of those dishes that he swears nobody would notice is gluten free and cow's milk dairy free.  He has been asking for it a few times a month since I created it.  By the way this mustard and wild mushroom cream sauce is equally good on chicken as it is on pork. 

This dish is definitely fancy enough for company but easy enough for a weeknight!  I love that once the sauce is prepared the meat and sauce go into the oven to finish cooking... Freeing you up to put together the rest of the meal which is perfect for me and my busy schedule.

I use a whole grain Jalapeno Mustard made by Jars of Sunshine in this recipe.  This particular Jalapeno Mustard is mild with a great jalapeno flavor which works perfectly in this dish; however, if you don't want to use this mustard then any good quality whole grain mustard will work. 



Pork with Mustard and Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce

6 - 1/2" to 3/4" center cut boneless pork chops
salt & pepper
1 tbs olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
10 oz mixed mushrooms (I used a frozen mix)
4 tbs dairy free buttery spread
4 tbs brown rice flour
4 cups chicken broth
1 - 12 oz can evaporated goats milk
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 tbs to 3/4 cup whole grain mustard (I used Jars of Sunshine brand Jalapeno Mustard) - Use mustard to taste as this will depend on brand.
salt & pepper, to taste (this will depend on the mustard you use) 
 
Hot cooked rice
 
 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a large baking pan (larger than 9x13 - you want the pork chops to lay in a single layer) with cooking spray.  
Season the pork chops with salt & pepper.
In a large skillet, brown the pork chops in the olive oil.
Once the pork chops are browned, but not cooked through place them in the prepared baking pan.
Reduce the heat in the skillet and begin to cook the onions in the remaining olive oil.
Cook the onions until translucent, about 7 minutes.
Add the garlic and continue to cook about 1 minute longer.
Add the mushrooms and cook about 5 minutes longer.
Add the buttery spread.
Once melted, add the flour.
Cook the flour until a blond roux.
Add the chicken broth slowly, whisking continually to prevent a lumpy sauce.
Stir in the goats milk and bring to a boil over medium low heat.
Gently boil until the sauce is thickened some, it will thicken more in the oven.
Reduce to a simmer.
Add the parsley and gradually add the mustard until the desired flavor is achieved.
We use 3/4 c of Jars of Sunshine brand Jalapeno Mustard, but depending on your tastes and the brand you use this will differ!
Season with salt and pepper after you get to the desired amount of mustard flavor.
Pour the sauce over the pork chops in the baking pan. 
 Bake for 45 minutes or longer, covered - until the pork chops are cooked through and the sauce is nicely thickened.
Meanwhile, cook the rice.

Serves 6 with a generous amount of sauce.

Variations -  6 butterflied, boneless skinless chicken breasts OR 12 boneless skinless chicken thighs
Follow the recipe just substituting the chicken for the pork.

  3. Hi Stephanie,

    I’ve just recently found your blog at http://www.dairyfreediva.com/ and I find it really informative and educational. Thank you for sharing your story, knowledge and experience through your blog.

    I'm currently volunteering on the Health Wellness and Sustainability Festival, taking place in Victoria on February the 7th (Previously known as the Gluten Free Health and Wellness Festival). Our event is all about healthy living through sensible culinary decisions and well balanced fitness activities and many others like acupuncture, chiropractic, yoga and martial arts. We also feature professionally coached, Tedx level speakers will provide attendees with educational talks about health and wellness.

    I wonder if it is possible for us to share some of your blog posts on our facebook page at:

We'd be more than happy to provide you with the exposure to the event’s attendees and networking with other bloggers in the community.
