Intro: Pork Chops and Creamy Gravy
A classic comfort food that I've made for my family the last 30 yrs. The pork chops are fork tender and the gravy is delicious rich and creamy!!
Step 1: Ingredients
4-6 pork loin chops, trim excess fat
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. vegetable oil, prevents butter from burning
4 tbsp. all purpose flour
1 tsp. onion powder, or more as desired
2-3 cups milk, I use whole milk for better taste
salt and pepper, as desired
1/2 tsp. browning and seasoning sauce, opts.
Season both sides of the pork chops with salt, pepper and onion powder. In a covered skillet, add oil and butter, melt over medium heat.
Add pork chops and brown on both sides.
Remove the pork chops from the pan, set aside.
Add the flour to the pan, stirring until smooth. Cook about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Gradually add the milk, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.
Stir in the salt, pepper, and onion powder. Taste to check the flavor and adjust the seasonings as you see fit.
Add the pork chops back into pan, including the juices to gravy; covering the chops with gravy.
Cover and simmer the pork chops about 45 minutes to 60 minutes (depending on thickness of meat). Occasionally, turn chops and stir the gravy to keep it from scorching. During this time, you can add more milk to thin out the gravy as you desire.
When done cooking, the meat should be very tender. At this time you can add browning sauce, if you desire. Stir it in and simmer another 5 minutes.
Serve pork chops and gravy with either rice, egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
Yields: 4-6 servings.
