Juicy pork shoulder steaks in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and onions. A 25 minute one-pan meal - great for a weeknight dinner. You can also use pork chops or pork loin for this recipe!
Gotta love a meat in creamy sauce recipe!
I make quite a lot of them because:
- I like a comforting, filling dinner - and creamy sauce dishes always hit the mark
- You can usually make it in one pan (less washing up yay!)
- You guys seem to like them too! You're definitely my people 😘
📋 What do we need?
- Pork - I like to use pork shoulder steaks as they're boneless and they have just a little bit of fat running through them to keep them nice and tender. If you like, you can swap for pork chops or pork loin steaks.
- Mushrooms - I'm using chestnut mushrooms as they have more flavour than regular white mushrooms, but you can use your favourite. Sliced portobello mushrooms are particularly good in this dish.
🔪 How to make this pork and mushroom recipe
***Full recipe with detailed steps in the recipe card at the end of this post.***
- Season the pork and fry in a pan with a little oil until golden.
- Remove from the pan, then fry onions, mushrooms and garlic.
- Sprinkle the onions with flour and stir to coat, then pour in chicken stock while stirring until you get a smooth sauce.
- Add in tomato puree, white wine vinegar and cream. Stir together to combine, then add the pork steaks back in and simmer for 10 minutes.
👩🍳PRO TIP I like to reserve a few fried mushrooms and onions during the frying stage to place on top at the end so they're not all hidden in the sauce.
Serve right away with your favourite side dishes.
Bonus tip - If you don't want to make this a full meal with lots of sides, slice up the pork, place it in a warm flatbread and top with the mushrooms and onions. Then serve with the creamy sauce for dipping.

However, you can make it ahead if you like. Make the dish, then quickly cool, cover and refrigerate. Remove from the fridge 30 mins before you want to reheat it to take the chill off it, then reheat, covered, in the oven at 180c/375F for about 20-25 minutes, until piping hot throughout. You'll need to stir the sauce a couple of times during re-heating, and you may need to add in a splash of water or stock to help loosen the sauce. Alternatively you can reheat in a pan (covered) over a medium-low heat for about 15-20 minutes, until piping hot throughout. Stir a few times and add a splash of water or stock if needed. Ingredient swaps
- Swap out the mushrooms for other vegetables - such as chunks of courgette or green beans.
- Replace the pork shoulder steaks with pork chops or pork loin steaks.
- Swap out the cream for creme fraiche for a slightly tangier finish.
