Smothered Pork Chops

Beth Pierce


These Smothered Pork Chops are lightly breaded, pan-fried and drenched in a creamy and flavorful easy to make pan gravy. This is the ultimate in Southern comfort and one of our favorites meals. My family loves these chops no matter what I serve with them. But for the ultimate meal serve with creamy mashed potatoes, Southern Green Beans and Homemade Biscuits.

  3. Melt the butter in same skillet over medium low heat. Add the onions and cook until tender and golden brown while scraping the bottom of the skillet to loosen the brown bits. Reduce the heat and add the garlic cooking for a 1 minute; stirring constantly.
