  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 3-4 tbsp water


  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

  • Transfer chops to a plate and cover with foil.
  • Make a slurry with the arrowroot powder and water - add the arrowroot to the water and whisk until smooth.
  • Heat the pan again over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute until fragrant (about 1-2 minutes).
  • Add the arrowroot slurry and heavy cream and stir until combined then bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add in the Parmesan cheese and parsley, stirring continuously until smooth.

The sauce is yummy over veggies too so you could drizzle some of it over a side broccoli or asparagus or your other favorite veggie.
