1/4 Photos of Fried Pork Chops With Brown Milk Gravy
This is the way we cooked pork chops in my younger days down south. It is NOT a recipe for those beautiful thick chops that need tender care. It IS a recipe for quick, tasty meat with good old down home taste, and gnawing on the bone if you never make it to the gravy. Bone-in chops add a lot more flavor and they taste great with mashed potatoes. For those who grew up with brown gravy made with water, just substitute water for the milk/cream.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 pork chops (I like bone-in rib chops, not too thick)
- seasoning salt or salt and pepper
- 1/4 cup flour, plus
- 2 tablespoons flour, for gravy, if making
- 2 teaspoons seasoning salt
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 2 tablespoons butter, more if needed for gravy
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 2 cups milk or 2 cups cream
- 1Trim excess fat from chops. Season chops with seasoned salt or salt and pepper.
- 2Mix flour with 2 teaspoons seasoned salt, dry mustard, pepper and paprika. Adjust seasonings as needed. If making gravy, remove 2 tablespoons seasoned flour and set aside for gravy to prevent lumps. Coat chops with remaining flour mixture.
- 3Melt 2 tablespoons butter and oil in skillet over medium high heat until hot.
- 4If NOT making gravy, brown chops on both sides until done. Drain on paper towels, then serve.
- 5If making gravy, add floured chops to pan and brown on both sides, about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove chops to drain on paper towels, then cover and keep warm.
- 6Reduce heat to medium. Check pan to make sure you have 2 tablespoons of drippings; if not, add butter or oil as needed.
- 7Add 2 tablespoons reserved flour to make the roux. Stir until smooth and dark brown.
- 8Lower heat and gradually add milk, stirring constantly until temperature reduces. Then stir frequently until gravy reaches desired consistency. Check seasonings and adjust as needed.
- 9Return chops to pan and simmer in gravy until hot and tender or, if chops are done and you prefer, just ladle gravy on top and serve.
