How to Make Skillet Bacon Broccoli Pork Chops

This recipe starts by cooking the bacon, setting it aside, and then cooking the pork chops in some of the rendered bacon fat. Doing this adds a whole lot of flavor. Then, you will remove the pork chops from the pan after they're cooked, add some butter, chicken stock, salt, pepper, the cream, and the bacon, which you've crumbled. Let it simmer a little bit and then add in the broccoli and mushrooms and cook until they're tender. Add the pork back in and you're good to go.

How to Store and Serve Skillet Bacon Broccoli Pork Chops

Meal prepping this recipe is easy and it will keep for 4 days in airtight sealed containers. Reheat in the oven at a low temperature (325 or 350 F), covered, for 15 minutes or so until heated all the way through. You can also microwave this, but sometimes chicken can get a little tough in the microwave if you accidentally overdo it.

We've suggested a side dish such as a prepared garlic risotto (there are lots of boxed rice dishes), but you can also cook your own brown or white rice, or cauliflower rice. Mashed potatoes would be divine with this pork dish, or even egg noodles.

You can also freeze this entire dish with no problem whatsoever. So, if for some reason you want to prep for four servings but freeze half, future you will be happy. Just keep it in an airtight container or in an airtight sealed bag that is freezer safe. Defrost in the refrigerator and then reheat, or put the whole frozen meal in the freezer, covered, until it's completely steaming hot again.

Substitutions and Customizations

Feel free to make this dish with bone-in or boneless pork chops; either will work but boneless ones will take longer.

Brussels sprouts or cauliflower can be swapped for broccoli. Don't lose the mushrooms, though! Green beans would also work. All of these vegetables would cook at about the same rate.

Feel free to use chicken thighs or chicken breasts instead of pork—boneless or bone-in. Either would also taste great here.

Make this prep gluten-free by swapping the all-purpose flour for rice flour or cornstarch.
