Smothered Pork Chops

October 3, 2007 at 12:40 am | Posted in Pork | 5 Comments

Tonight I made smothered pork chops – my first time cooking pork chops actually! This was Tommy’s favorite meal that I have cooked so far. He LOVED these pork chops and he can be a tough critic sometimes ; ) He said he could have eaten about 5 more. HA! These will definitely become a regular on our menus.


1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 pork chops, 3/4-inch thick, bone-in
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup buttermilk


Put the flour in a shallow platter and add the onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels to remove any moisture and then dredge them in the seasoned flour; shaking off the excess.

Heat a large saute pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat and coat with the oil. When the oil is nice and hot, lay the pork chops in the pan in a single layer and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove the pork chops from the pan and add a little sprinkle of seasoned flour to the pan drippings. Mix the flour into the fat to dissolve and then pour in the chicken broth in. Let the liquid cook down for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly. Stir in the buttermilk to make a creamy gravy and return the pork chops to the pan, covering them with the sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes until the pork is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

I served these with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans. Super yummy meal! 🙂
