Pork Chops with Fennel and Mushroom Sauce

This dinner features, again, the Costco pork chops. We browned them on top of the stove in an oven proof pan and 2T olive oil. Place the pan in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 min. Add a sliced fennel bulb and return the pan to the oven for another 10 min or until the internal temperature of the meat is 140 degrees. Remove the chops from the pan and deglaze it with 1/4C white wine and 1/2C chicken stock. Add about 4 oz. of sliced mushrooms and 2 cloves of crushed garlic. Bring to a rapid boil and reduce the sauce to about 1/2, or until it reaches the thickness you desire. Finish the sauce with 2T butter, salt and pepper to taste. Add some of the fennel fronds as a garnish. Serve the sauce, fennel and mushrooms over the meat with boiled fingerling potatoes and green beans.
