Years ago I cooked for an elderly gentleman that consistently asked for pork chops with tomato gravy. I had no idea what heck Tomato gravy was I just made gravy and added tomato paste. He was too sweet too tell me I didn't have it right. Thank God for my Tee Irma out of Fayetteville, N.C. here is a passed down version that's sure to please.
