Pork Escalope With Mushroom Cream Sauce And Mash Potato
Today while cooking I remembered something that happened years ago. I was asked to write content for a cooking magazine. This would have meant cooking or baking something interesting, serve nicely, take some good quality photos and get paid for it. Most likely it would have been tempting for many, yet I said no. I was labeled a fool, for refusing such an offer, but I knew what I was doing and never regretted it. I'm not the one to go after fame, the downside would have been way more than the advantage, so it wasn't something I was interesting in it.
I had a cooking blog in Hungarian and was earning good money through AdSense, but all things come to an end and Google playing with the page ranking algorithm, it wasn't worth the time anymore. Then came Hive, or the legacy chain. Today I can publish whatever I'm cooking or baking and get paid for it, without being scared all the time, that my account can get shut down for no reason and I don't have any chance to appeal or get an explanation why. Welcome to web3 though! (I still have my AdSense account and earning but it's not mine, that's a centralized structure.)
Why am I here today? Well, the truth is, I'm not looking for recipes on a daily bases, I'm avoiding them if I can, unless I really need a good recipe. Checking every recipe that comes your way leads to more cooking and baking, which leads to overeating and who needs that, right? However, a couple of days ago I saw this recipe on YouTube and the curious devil in me made me check it out. And that was it, there was no escape. I had to cook it and now I want to show it to you.
The original recipe is THIS, but I needed to adjust it to my taste. I saw right away this is something I would enjoy, so why not give it a try. The recipe you're going to see below is my version, not the original, so I suggest you go check the original too.
- 7 slices of pork (I had 2 types)
- black pepper
- vegetable oil (I used olive oil)
- 3 onions
- 500 g of mushrooms
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 20 g of butter
- 2 glasses of water
- 4 bay leaves
- 1 teaspoon of herbs
- 1 tablespoon of wheat flour
- 200 ml of heavy cream
- 100 ml skimmed milk
- 500 g potatoes. source
Even though it seems like it has a lot of ingredients and may look like a complicated recipe, it's not. Trust me, it's as easy as 2 x 2.
First get the pork ready flatten it out, season with salt and pepper and leave it rest for a couple of hours.
Add some oil to the pan, place the pork slices in it when the oil is hot and cook for about 5 minutes on both sides, till it becomes golden brown.
It doesn't have to be perfectly cooked and totally soft as there's a second cooking. Just needs a bit of color and flavor. When it's ready, take out the meat.
Clean and slice the onion and the mushrooms.
First add the onion and sauté till it's soft, but make sure to not burn it. It's going to be brown because of the meat. Then add the crushed garlic and sauté for another minute.
Add the sliced mushroom, salt and spices and mix well. Don't add water yet as the mushroom is going to leave a lot of water. When it's well sautéed, add some butter if it is needed.
Add water to cover, add the pork, bay leaves, cover with a lid and cook for about 30 minutes. The mushroom does not need a long cooking time and the pork was pre-cooked already, so 30 minutes was enough for me.
Next mix the flour with the heavy cream, add some milk if you think it's too thick and your mushroom has not enough water left. Add the cream to the mushroom pork mix, stir for a few minutes, season with salt and pepper if it is needed and it's ready to be served.
You can serve it with mash potato. I suppose I don't have to detail the recipe and the method of how to make mash potato :)
And voilà, lunch is served!
What can I tell you? It's heavenly good, worth the time spent in the kitchen and compared to other meat recipes, this is ready in about 1 hour if you know how to work fast when cooking. It took me more as i had to take photos and arrange everything in a decent way, but worse it anyway.
Jesus!!! Where are my manners, I forgot to ask, who wants some? 😂

Mushrooms are very healthy and having it in this means that the meal is worth eating. I will see if I can try it out here.
If you can find mushrooms, the rest is easy, but then again, you know what is easy or not. In any case, you won't regret it.
There's enough mushrooms in my locality. Though seasonally different types come out.
wow,looks likes so delicious!
It is delicious.
Meat and mashed potatoes are always in harmony. I love to consume foods that combine these two. Your meal looks very tasty and successful to me.
Thank you! Me too, it's just that it's not good for my diet 😕
This dish looks like very yummy and delicious I love this dish.

Yeah. Hive has given us the Avenue to express ourselves without fear. And we are always happy to view.
This meal look so yummy 🤤. But only if I could replace the pork with beef??
Why? Do you have something against pork? An allergy or religious beliefs? 🥺
Religious believe 😆
I thought as much. No worries. Maybe, it will work out with beef.
Come and prepare it for me na
I know some of the users can't eat pork. Obviously you can replace pork with beef, just need to adjust cooking time as beef most likely (or definitely) needs more cooking time.
Yeah that’s true.. thanks for the response..
Hahaha... I want a lot... Not even some 😋😋
This looks yummy, seriously, you killed this. I have a feeling it turned out better than the original recipe... No offense to the original Chef.. lol
It's great that you found Hive and you no longer have to watch your back when you create your contents. That's the beautiful thing about Web 3, you are in control of everything.
Happy Cooking, Chef Erikah ❤️
Well, apart from the potato and somespices, the rest is similar to the original. I don't like to exaggerate with spices.
Lol, chef Erika 👩🍳 🤣 Thanks for the conference 😄
Oh. That's awesome.
Hehehehe... You are so welcome. ❤️
Hi @erikah! This dish looks fabulous and the pictures are spectacular.
Thank you, I tried my best 😃
Thank god I'm stuffed cause that looks pretty yummy :)
Lol, you're always stuffed 😂
No worries, I can save you some.
I love mushrooms, your recipe looks really spectacular, the heavy cream must give it a VERY tasty texture!
Have a happy Saturday! @erikah
Thank you. Indeed, the heavy cream gave it a nice texture.
I'm glad you like it. Have a nice weekend my friend 😊
Now this looks good!
I have never tested mushrooms before, I always hear about them and I'm not sure if I have actually seen them before as well, do they like sell them In the market place? Because I haven't seen yet, and I will like to try them.
I was Inspired by I Beautiful post on liketu, and so I decided to give it a try and it was a go go for me, I will like to try these too, but the challenge might be the mushrooms.
I will just make some Inquiries and when I prepare it, I will bring it here and tag you if you don't mind 🥂
If you've never had mushroom, then it's time to taste it, just make sure to buy it from a trusted source. In my country selling mushroom at the market is forbidden by law, you can only do it if you grow them yourself. So what you buy is safe.
You can tag me in your post, sure :)
Oh okay, I really don't know much about it here in my country but I will try them definitely

I love creamy mushroom sauce! Actually had some for my lunch today and yesterday :D Except it was made from the forest mushrooms that I picked in autumn. We usually eat this sauce with dumplings or pasta as the side dish but mashed potatoes can surely work out well with it too :) Cool recipe, thanks for sharing!
Well, dumplings and pasta is also very good. I chose mash potato because the recipe had potato, but you can also serve it with polenta, although I'm not a big fan. Good to know you like and cook it too :)
Thank you, indeed it is.
I love escalopes 😍😍 and with mushrooms sauce looks super, the sauce looks really creamy 😍
Grazie mille Noemi 🥰
I'm glad you like it as it's really good.
Wow a finished meal like this is always worth the trouble. Still surprised it took you just an hour to prepare something this attractive.
If you have some experience in the kitchen, it can be done.
Oh my HAT! @erikah !! @ZakLudick this is STRAIGHT up our alley! I'll be pinching this recipe!!
Lol, thank you! I'm glad you like it and have fun tasting it :)
