Pork Chops in Sour Cream Sauce is a delicious dish featuring browned, “bone-in” pork chops and onions baked in a sour cream wine sauce.
Today I want to share a recipe I discovered many, many years ago in one of my old cookbooks. The recipe was first published almost 30 years ago, but good recipes are timeless… right?
Making this dish is fairly simple. Basically, you will pan-sear pork chops until browned, cover with onion rings and an easy to make sour cream wine sauce, then bake until done.
The pork chops come out tender and juicy, and have great flavor from the onions and sauce they are baked in. I think you will enjoy this recipe. Here’s how to make it.

Season The Pork Chops
Dry the pork chops on both sides with paper towels to remove extra moisture. This will allow the pork chops to brown better when they are pan-seared.
Season the pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, and dried sage. Press the seasonings into the meat to help them adhere.
Pan-Sear The Seasoned Pork Chops
Heat a Tablespoon of vegetable oil on Medium heat in a large non-stick skillet, until very hot, but not smoking.
Place the pork chops in a single layer in the hot oil. You should hear them sizzle when they hit the hot oil in the skillet.
Brown the chops, without moving them in the skillet, for 5 minutes. Turn the pork chops over, and cook the other side for 5 minutes.
The pork chops should be nicely browned on both sides. They will finish cooking when they are baked later.
Transfer the pork chops into a greased (or sprayed) 9″ x 9″ baking dish, keeping them in a single layer in the dish.
NOTE: Do not clean the skillet. You’ll use the drippings from cooking the chops later, when you make the sour cream sauce.
Spread thinly sliced onion rings on top of the pork chops, evenly distributing them. Set the dish aside.
Make The Sour Cream Sauce
Now it’s time o make the EASY sour cream sauce. Stir sour cream, Dijon mustard and flour in a small bowl until fully combined. Set aside.
Add chicken broth and dry white wine to the skillet you cooked the pork chops in. Bring the liquid to a boil, and let it boil for 1 minute.
Add the sour cream mixture and fresh, chopped parsley to the skillet. Stir well, to fully combine these ingredients.
Remove the skillet from the heat, and pour the sour cream sauce over the pork chops and onion rings, making sure the chops are covered.
Bake The Pork Chops In Sour Cream Sauce
Place the pork chops (uncovered) in a preheated 350°F. oven. Bake them for 35 minutes, until the onions have slightly browned, and the sauce is bubbly.
Serve The Pork Chops in Sour Cream Sauce
When finished baking, the pork chops are ready to be served. Transfer the pork chops to individual serving plates.
Spoon any remaining sour cream sauce left in the baking dish on top of the pork chops. Serve immediately with a favorite side dish, and enjoy!
