This recipe takes a little more time to make but it’s worth the time and effort to make! Usually I only buy pork roasts and make shredded pork recipes, which I love but I felt like we needed to branch out! This was a serious win, Matt liked it a lot, which is saying something.

We liked branching out and trying something new. Our kids wouldn’t try it, but the adults really loved it. The kids are going through a phase where anything new that has sauce on it they won’t try it. I hope your kids are less picky than mine. 




Smothered Pork Chops


  • 4 thick, bone-in pork chops
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 cup and 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Chopped fresh parsley



Smothered Pork Chops


  1. Season pork chops all over with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix together flour with garlic powder and chili powder. Coat pork chops in flour, shaking off excess. Reserve 2 tablespoons seasoned flour.
  3. In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, heat 1/4 cup oil until shimmering. In batches, cook pork chops until golden, 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate. Wipe out skillet.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low, pour in remaining oil, and add onions. Season with more salt and pepper and cook until very soft and slightly caramelized, 15-20 minutes. Add butter and let melt, then sprinkle in reserved flour. Cook until flour is no longer raw, about a minute. Stir in chicken broth and heavy cream and bring to a simmer, until sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
  5. Return pork chops to skillet and cook until pork is cooked through, about 10 minutes more. 
  6. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
