Quick and easy pork chops in cream sauce recipe

A few weeks ago, my Grandma invited me over a pork chop lunch. These were so good, I definitely had more than one serving! When she told me how she made it, I couldn’t believe how simple it was! Plus when pork chops go on sale, it also makes a budget-friendly recipe.

    • You’re right! Between her and my mom, I’ve got some pretty massive shoes to fill! Grandma also says that the best place to buy shallots (in Canada anyway) is Costco – $5/bag and they are fresh and last a long time!
