Creamy Mushroom Pork:
  • Cut pork into 8 (1-inch-thick) slices (wash hands); shred cheese (about 1/2 cup).
  • Preheat large, nonstick sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Season pork with salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Place oil in pan, then add pork; cook 2–3 minutes on each side or until browned.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low; add broth and mushrooms, then simmer 4 minutes. Remove pork from pan; whisk in cream cheese, mustard, and shredded cheese until melted.
  • Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper and green onions, then return pork to pan; simmer and stir 3–4 minutes or until pork is 145°F. Serve.
Broccoli Rice Casserole:
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine all ingredients and place in 2-quart baking dish. Cover dish with foil; bake 25–30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Aprons Advice:
  • Complete your meal with fresh salad blend, whole grain bread, and apple pie for dessert.
  • You can use baby portabellas instead of white mushrooms in the pork recipe for a richer, heartier flavor.
