Chef John's Smothered Pork Chops
Poultry seasoning is the special secret spice that gives a flavor twist to comforting home-style pork chops simmered in rich onion gravy.
Here is an simple way to make sauteed pork chops smothered in a scrumptious gravy. Onion, garlic and browning sauce enrich a chicken broth base that is thickened with a touch of flour.
So good! I made this with a bone-in pork steak and let it simmer a bit longer in the gravy while covered loosely with some foil. Nice change from the can of mushroom soup gravy often found. If you don't want to buy buttermilk use the shot of lemon juice in milk trick.
Delicious recipe! How anyone could find this recipe bland I have no idea because it was anything but bland. Maybe they didn't caramelize the onions as instructed? Which is an important step for this sauce. It had lots of rich, full flavor. The only modification I made was for the poultry seasoning I used Adolph's Seasoned tenderizer since my family doesn't like regular poultry seasoning. The spice set is perfect for this recipe. It has garlic powder in it but I sprinkled a little more on the chops before searing them; no need to salt since Adolph's has salt in it or you could just use garlic powder, onion powder and salt instead. If you plan on serving over rice, pasta or even potatoes, for that matter, you might want to consider increasing the sauce to 50% more since it didn't make quite as much as we wanted. The sauce is wonderful! I served over some ridged elbow pasta with fresh steamed green beans sauteed in a little olive oil, fresh minced garlic, kosher salt and freshly grated black pepper. The chop
Loved cooking this for my family. The only reason it has a 4 instead of a 5 is because this by the directions did not make enough gravy for us to use over our rice as well as the chops. I am a novice at cooking so I really appreciate the recipes on here as well as the reviews.
Excellent without changing a thing. This is the most delicious pork chop entre.
