Smothered Pork Chops & Onion Gravy

 

 

Ingredients 

 

  • Bone-in pork chops 
  • Seasoned salt 
  • Black pepper 
  • Onion powder 
  • Garlic powder 
  • Vegetable oil 
  • Butter 
  • Beef broth 
  • Yellow onion 
  • All-purpose flour 

 

How To Make Smothered Pork Chops & Onion Gravy 

 

Start by seasoning both sides of the pork chops with seasoned salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper. Then in a large skillet over medium-high heat add the vegetable oil. 

 

 

Once the skillet is hot add in the pork chops. You will need to cook them for 2-3 minutes on each side (the internal temp should be 145 degrees). Once they are fully cooked remove them from the skillet and set aside. 

 

 

To make the Onion Gravy, add butter and sliced onions to the skillet. Allow the onions to sauté for 3-4 minutes or until they start to soften and turn golden brown along the edges.

 

 

Then add flour and whisk it together with the melted butter and onions. Allow the roux to cook for 2-3 minutes.

 

 

Then add in the beef broth. You will need to stir constantly until the mixture is well combined and it starts to look more like gravy. 

 

 

Then reduce the heat to low and place the pork chops back into the skillet. Make sure to cover them with the gravy and onions. Allow the gravy to come to a simmer, occasionally stirring until the desired thickness is reached.

FAQ

 

What type of pork chops do you use for this recipe? 

  • I always use bone-in center cut pork chops because they are thicker and have a higher fat content which makes them juicier in comparison to boneless chops.  However, any type will do for this recipe, it’s totally up to your preference. 

 

How do I avoid my pork chops from becoming tough? 

  • I highly suggest using a meat thermometer because most of the time meat is tough when it is overcooked. 

 

What should I serve this with? 

  • I typically like to serve this dish with a side of mashed potatoes or rice and a vegetable such as corn or green beans.
