This boneless pork chop recipe is adapted from What's In The Pan? using our Bourbon Whiskey, and it is so good, you're bound to ask for a second helping.


  • wild rice
  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 8 oz mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp & 1/4 tsp flour
  • 1/3 cup Mad River Distillers Bourbon Whiskey
  • 2/3 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce


  1. Prepare 4 servings of wild rice according to cooking instructions.
  2. Set the prepared rice to the side, and keep it warm.
  3. Combine the garlic powder, 1 tsp of italian seasoning, salt and pepper (to taste).
  4. Season 4 pork chops with the prepared seasoning above.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp of butter in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Once the pan is hot, add the seasoned pork chops to the pan and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side (a total of 8-10 minutes, depending on thickness of the pork).
  7. Remove pork from the skillet, and set them aside on a plate.
  8. Return skillet to the heat. Add another tbsp of butter. Once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms.
  9. Cook the mushrooms for 5-6 minutes on medium heat until they are softened.
  10. Remove the mushrooms from heat and transfer them to a plate.
  11. With the skillet still over medium heat, add another tbsp of butter. Once melted, add flour and cook for 1 minute while mixing it into the butter.
  12. Once the butter and flour are thoroughly mixed, slowly pour the Bourbon Whiskey into the pan while stirring.
  13. Add the beef broth to the skillet, along with the whole milk. Stir again.
  14. Add the Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp italian seasoning, and salt to taste.
  15. Simmer the sauce for a few minutes. If the sauce is thinner than you'd like, add a little extra flour until you reach the desired thickness.
  16. Add pork chops back to the pan, into the sauce. Then, add the mushrooms on top of the pork chops.
  17. If the pork chops aren't thick, you can heat them up by adding a lid to the skillet. If the pork chops are thick, cook them for 8 more minutes in the oven at 375F.
  18. Check the temperature of the pork chops. They should reach an internal temperature between 145-155F.
  19. When the pork chops reach the correct temperature, remove them from the heat, and top with chopped parsley.
  20. Serve the sauce and pork chops immediately over a bed of prepared wild rice.
