How to Make Thick Pork Chops with Gingersnap Gravy

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Rinse and pat dry pork chops. Salt and pepper them to taste.
  2. In a Dutch oven or large heavy pot, heat the oil and add the onion and salt and cook on medium for 7 minutes. Add the gingersnaps, beer, ground ginger, sugar, pepper and cinnamon. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Whisk to smooth gravy.
  3. Whisk in cream. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper, if needed. Keep warm.
  4. Oil an ovenproof skillet and heat it until it is very hot. Sear the pork chops on both sides until they turn golden. Place pan in oven and roast pork chops from 5-10 minutes, depending on thickness. They should reach 135F. on a meat thermometer. Let them rest 10 minutes.
  5. Place cooked egg noodles on each plate and add one chop on each plate. Ladle gravy over noodles and serve extra gravy in a bowl on table.
