One of our favorite meals to make is Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops. My husband goes bananas for them! However, that’s not what I’m posting about today. Confused? That’s alright, I tend to lose people with my train of thought 🙂 The reason that is not today’s recipe is because I have not yet made these delicious pork chops and taken photos. #photographerfail But this staple of a meal is the reason I made THESE Smothered Pork Chops. Although hubby and I love the glazed chops, I was looking for another way I could prepare them to keep our “staple meal” interesting.
Smothered Pork Chops are certainly a great dinner option, and an easy way to make something other than chicken (am I the only one who makes chicken 1,000,000,000 times over??? … I hoped not).
These chops are lightly fried in a seasoned flour, then the pan is deglazed to make a delicious gravy. Can you say YUM?! My mouth seriously waters when I think about it. If you need an idea of what to serve with them, we like to have ours with loaded mashed potatoes and broccoli.
Happy Friday guys!
Smothered Pork Chops
Adapted from here
- 4-5 boneless, thin cut pork chops
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp. garlic powder
- 2 tbsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. cayenne
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- In a large skillet, heat your olive oil on medium heat.
- In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, salt and pepper.
- Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and dredge each chop in the seasoned flour. Shake off the excess. (Save the rest of the flour, you will need it)
- Once the oil is hot, fry each chop for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
- Remove the chops and set aside. Sprinkle about 2 tsp. of the seasoned flour mixture in the pan and whisk with the fat until dissolved, about 30 seconds.
- Whisk in the chicken broth and let it reduce and thicken for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally to deglaze the pan.
- Whisk in the milk and let the gravy come to a simmer.
- Turn the heat to low and return the pork chops to the pan, covering them in the sauce. Let simmer for another 5 minutes, or until you’re ready to serve. Season with more salt and pepper if needed.
