How to Make Pork Chops in Mushroom Sauce

These crispy pork chops are marinated in kalamansi juice and fish sauce before being breaded, deep-fried, and served with a delicious mushroom gravy. In this article, let me share my simple recipe. If you don't have kalamansi juice, I recommend substituting lemon juice.

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper

For the mushroom gravy:

  • 400 grams mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • Cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 chicken cube
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Salt, to taste


For preparation:

  • 1 large plate
  • 4 medium bowls
  • 9 small bowls

For cooking:

  • frying pan
  • skimmer
  • tong
  • cooling rack
  • saucepan
  • cooking spoon


  1. Marinate the pork chops with kalamansi juice, fish sauce, and black pepper. Place inside the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  2. Before taking the pork chops out of the fridge, prepare the breading mixture. Crack and beat eggs in a bowl. Add water. In separate bowls, season flour and bread crumbs with salt and black pepper. Set aside.
  3. After marinating the pork chops, coat each piece in the breading mixture. Follow this simple breading procedure: flour, egg, flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. Press the pork chop firmly to compact the breading in order to prevent it from falling apart. Set aside.
  4. Heat a frying pan and pour in some cooking oil.
  5. When the oil is hot enough, pan-fry each piece of breaded pork chop over low to medium heat. Cook each side until the color turns golden brown.
  6. Once cooked, transfer the pork chops to a cooling rack or a plate lined with a paper towel. Set aside.
  7. Heat oil in a saucepan. Saute garlic and mushroom. Cook until tender. Set aside.
  8. Using the same saucepan, heat oil and butter. Add all-purpose flour to make a roux. Cook until golden brown.
  9. Slowly add water while stirring. Stir in chicken cube until diluted.
  10. Add the sauteed mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper.
  11. Once ready, pour into a gravy sauce boat or a bowl.
  12. Serve with rice, and enjoy.

  • Use fresh or canned mushrooms.
  • Replace the chicken cube and water with all-natural chicken broth.
  • Do not overcrowd the frying pan to maintain the oil temperature for even cooking.
