Pork Loin in Onion Gravy - Dee Dee's

Diane Atherton


I had a couple of thick pork loin chops in the fridge and wanted some idea's on how to make a really special and delicious meal! And special is what I found as I looked through my Southern Living cookbooks.

This recipe was inspired from the "Pork Chops in Onion Gravy" in the 1999 issue of the annual Southern Living cookbook. I made changes to the original recipe to make it work with the ingredients I had on hand.

I'm happy to say it turned out delicious!!

Hope you enjoy!
