An Easy Pork Chop Recipe, Southern Style Smothered Pork Chops

This simple pork chop recipe is a southern favorite. The pork chops are covered in thinly sliced onions and gravy, and simmered to a flavorful end.

Choose a thicker sliced pork chop that is an even thickness throughout. Chops that are an even thickness will cook evenly with less drying.

Start the chop at a high heat to brown quickly, then end at lower heat on the stove in the gravy. This produces a more tender and juicy chop.

Watch your heat and do not overcook. Overcooking will cause the chops to dry out. Serve this with a nice bread or biscuit to soak up the extra gravy or over rice. Brilliant!

Simple Smothered Pork Chops

1 Tablespoon Oil

2 Tablespoons Butter

2 Tablespoons flour

2 cups broth, beef, chicken or a combination of the two

4 bone in pork chops, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick

Add the flour and cook, stirring until the flour is lightly browned.Stir in the minced garlic and thyme and cook for a few seconds until fragrant. Increase the heat to medium high. Add the broth slowly, whisking until well mixed. Add the bay leaves. Bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat again to low and simmer until the pork is tender and done, about 30 minutes. Remove the chops to a platter and cover with foil to keep warm.
