Simply Pork Chops & Gravy

Jeanne Gliddon


Sometimes I just like my Pork Chops simple with a nice smooth and savory gravy. While I have only used salt, pepper and garlic salt; you can experiment with any of your favorite seasonings. I like to serve rice alongside the pork chops with a nice crisp salad and maybe some applesauce. This meal is easy and quick to prepare. Enjoy!
