I started making this delicious dish almost 40 yrs ago when I found the recipe in a Woman's Day magazine. They are truely the best pork chops I have ever tasted or made. Anyone who has had them always give them rave reviews. The original recipe calls for 1 inch thick pork chops but I never make it with ones that thick. I have even used thin ones or whatever I have on hand. You just have to adjust the cooking time. I also always double the gravy ingredients, except the onions, so we have lots for the mashed potatoes. These pork chops turn out so moist and delicious.

How to Make Obie Green's Smothered Pork Chops

Step-by-Step

  1. Wipe chops with paper towels to dry off; sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp white pepper; coat with pancake mix. Heat oil in
    large skillet; brown chops on both sides and place in casserole. I use a large lasagna pan, so that there's plenty of room for the gravy not to spill over) Saute/fry onions with remaining salt, pepper and sugar in same skillet, till lightly browned. Stir in flour; cook for at least 1 - 2 minutes to cook the flour taste out.
    Gradually add in boiling water while stirring with a whisk. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, till thickened and boils. Pour over chops and cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 1 hour 20 min. Remove chops to serving platter; keep hot. Strain gravy through a sieve, pressing onions with a spoon. (I skip this part bcuz I love the onion pieces in the gravy) Skim fat from gravy if necessary. Serve mashed potatoes and the gravy with chops. Yummo!

  3. Note: I have tried making these in a slow cooker, and find you have to zig zag stack them and they have a tendency to fall apart...I like keeping them in a single layer,so they don't break up so much. If you are just cooking for two, and can put them in a single layer, that may work better. But personally, I love leftovers of this dish, and make alot of these yummy pork chops and mashies so we can have reruns. hehe
