freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp
paprika

all purpose flour
1/2 c

chicken bouillon cube

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Rinse pork chops and pat dry. Dissolve chicken bouillon cube in water. Set aside.
2
In a small bowl, combine all seasonings.
Put flour on a flat plate for dredging.
Generously season both sides of pork chops with seasoning mix, reserving any additional. Dredge seasoned pork chops with flour and place on a plate. Combine leftover flour and seasoning and set aside.
3
In a cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Fry pork chops on both sides until golden brown. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
4
Add onions to oil and drippings in skillet. sauté until they start to soften. Stir in leftover flour/seasoning mixture and cook for 1 minute. Add water and whisk until smooth.
5
Reduce heat to a simmer and add pork chops back to gravy. Simmer for one hour until pork chops are tender. Add additional water, if needed during cooking.
