Pork Chops Smothered in Onion Gravy

"This recipe calls for 4 pork chops because that's about what you can fit into a standard frying pan, though I've squeezed 6 smaller chops in before. I recommend you double the recipe because my husband eats them two at a time. Serve the smothered pork chops over cooked rice with your favorite vegetable side dish and cornbread."

  1. Mix seasoned salt, garlic powder, black pepper, and paprika together in a bowl; rub about 3/4 teaspoon spice mixture onto each pork chop. Thoroughly coat each pork chop with flour, saving remaining seasoning and flour for the gravy.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat; cook pork chops in the hot oil until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate, retaining drippings in the pan. Cover pork chops with paper towels.
  3. Cook and stir onion in the drippings in the heavy skillet over medium heat until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms, remaining flour, remaining spice mixture, and about 1 teaspoon water if needed to moisten; cook and stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir 2 cups water into onion-mushroom mixture until gravy is smooth; bring to a boil. Place pork chops in the gravy, reduce heat, cover skillet, and simmer until pork chops are tender, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Followed recipe with one modification...used chicken broth in place of water for the gravy. The broth gave the gravy another depth of seasoning. Yummy! The chops were cooked perfectly and the se...

Definitely a keeper. Used boneless chops and substituted beef broth for the water and it gave it a lot of flavor. Also used an oven safe skillet and cooked it at 325 degrees for an hour and the ...

The whole family enjoyed this. Cooked six chops, split between 2 pans. Needed more water than the recipe called for, but that was an easy fix.
