Smothered Pork Chops – a super easy boneless pork chops recipe with a creamy mushroom gravy over the top! Easy, comforting and delicious.
You may remember the recipe I share a couple weeks ago for a Crispy Pork Cutlet. After my time in Sioux Falls I just have pork on the brain! I don’t know about you, but I swear we have pork for dinner at least once a week, sometimes more.
Sheet Pan pork tenderloin is a favorite for busy weeknights when we just don’t have a ton of time. By now I think most people know that I love mushrooms. I could eat sauteed mushrooms at just about every meal.
Boneless pork chops are on sale pretty much every other week at my grocery store, so I like to stock up and always have them on hand. Pork chop recipes are kind of a staple in my house. French Onion Pork Chops are a great fall comfort food dinner too.
How To Make Smothered Pork Chops
- Mix together flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Dredge pork chops in flour mixture until they are lightly coated. Set aside.
- Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the pork chops and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until browned. Remove from the pan and keep them warm while you make the gravy.
- Add the remaining oil to the pan and reduce the heat to medium high. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook for 5-6 minutes, until the onions start to soften and the mushrooms are browned.
- Add the garlic and coo for about 1 minute, until you can start to smell it.
- Mix in the flour until no white streaks remaining.
- Whisk in the chicken stock and milk until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, and bring the mixture to a simmer.
- Add the pork chops back to the pan and simmer for 5-7 minutes until the gravy has thickened and the pork chops are cooked through.
How Long To Cook Pork Chops
Knowing how to cook pork chops is such a great skill to have. In my lemon garlic pork chops recipe post, I walk you through my favorite way to keep them tender and juicy. And searing the outside is the most important step! That and not over cooking it!
The most important thing is to not over cook pork chops. They need to be cooked to 165º F and no further.
I use the Thermapen Mk4 to check the temperature of the meat throughout the cooking process. It is the most accurate thermometer I have found and have been using it for years!
Pork has always been a staple in our diets, it was growing up and it still is today. But I have to say after spending time with the pig farmer in South Dakota, I am even more happy to feed pork to my family. Seeing the work they put into everything, the pride and the care they have is amazing.
