How To Make onion and herb baked pork chops with gravy

  • Seasoning both sides of the pork chops.
    Season pork chops with garlic powder, salt, Mrs. Dash onion, and herb seasoning mix on both sides (be sure to rub in). Heat olive oil in a skillet. Sear pork chops in oil for 3 minutes on one side. Flip and sear on another side for one minute longer.
  • Pork chops in a baking dish.
    When golden brown transfer pork chops to a baking dish. Reserve oil and brown bits in the pan to make the gravy later.
  • Dish covered in foil and baking in the oven.
    Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Cover pork chops with water. Cover the baking dish with foil and cook for 2 hours. Remove from oven when done, place pork chops on a hot plate and keep warm. Reserve drippings in the pan, should be about two cups of drippings. If less that's okay, you can use a little beef or pork broth.
  • Browning onions in a skillet.
    To make the gravy. Cut up the onions, slice in half, and peel, then cut into slices. Heat up your pan with the oil and pork brown bits, and add a bit more oil if needed. Cook onions till they are lightly brown and translucent.
  • Adding flour to the onions.
    Add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir for 2 minutes until browned.
  • Whisking in pork drippings.
    Turn down heat to medium, and whisk in pork drippings, keep whisking until thickened up.
  • Boiling the gravy to thicken.
    Stir again and let boil. Season with salt and pepper, if you want you can add more Mrs. Dash onion and herb to the gravy. Cook the gravy until heated through and thick.
  • Gravy poured over the pork chops.
    Spoon on top of pork chops. Great served with baked beans and veggies. Also great with mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
