A few tips for this creamy skillet pork chops and mushrooms

You can reduce the amount of cream in the recipe if you want to reduce the amount of fat. I would just increase the amount of stock. I simmered my sauce until it thickened up a little. You can use 1/2-1 teaspoon of xanthan gum instead of simmering, or if you increased the stock an reduced the heavy cream and it isn’t as thick as you would like. It’s entirely up to you and your family’s preference.

Serving ideas

You can serve this on top of mashed cauliflower, another low carb mash, zoodles, or other low carb noodles. I served this on top of my new way to make mashed potatoes. My family eats these up!
