Trim excess fat from chops and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Saute onion and garlic in butter until soft and golden. Push aside or remove from pan. Add chops and brown on both sides. Pour off fat. Lower heat, add boullion/broth and bay leaf. Cook, uncovered, over low heat for 1 hour. Transfer chops to a serving platter and keep warm. Reduce pan juices by half over high heat. Add sour cream and paprika and blend thoroughly with pan juices. Heat through but DO NOT BOIL. Pour sauce over chops.
