Smothered Pork Chops


It’s unusually cold here in Texas, and even more so in the rest of the country.  These smothered pork chops are a southern classic and will warm you up and fill you up on a cold winter’s night.  Seasoned pan-fried pork chops with a simple but flavorful onion gravy served with mashed potatoes – this is comfort food at it’s best!


Smothered Pork Chops


4 bone-in pork chops, about 1 inch think
fresh ground salt and pepper
1 cup flour
2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, divided use
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy cream


Season pork chops with salt and pepper.

In a shallow dish/pie plate, combine the flour, garlic powder, thyme, and chili powder.  Reserve 2 tablespoons of the flour mix.  Dredge the pork chops in the flour, shaking off the excess.

In a large skillet or electric frying pan, heat the 1/4 cup oil until shimmering.  Cook the pork chops until gold brown, about 5 minutes per side.  Transfer to a plate.  Wipe out the skillet.

Reduce heat to medium low, add remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and add onions.  Season with more salt and pepper and cook until very soft and slightly caramelized, about 15-20 minutes.  Add butter and let melt, then sprinkle in reserved flour.  Mix and cook about 1 minute.  Stir in chicken broth and heavy cream and bring to a simmer.  Allow sauce to thicken about 5 minutes.

Return pork chops to skillet and cook until pork is cooked through, about 10 minutes more.  Garnish with chopped parsley or fresh thyme if desired.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
