    Glutton's Note:

    From the cookbook, "Harlem Really Cooks" by the late Harlem historian and gourmand Sandra Lawrence. "Obie" was a friend of hers who owned a nightclub/restaurant and smothered chops were one of the many specialties made there. The use of pancake mix in lieu of plain flour gives this dish a slight sweetness along with the sugar as well. The only change I made was the addition of mushrooms to the gravy. Serve with Sauteed Potatoes With Apples - I hope you like it. And please, do buy the book. *Note: If you don't eat pork for religious or health reasons, turkey chops are a fine substitute.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4-6

    Yield:

    chops

    Units: US | Metric

    Gravy

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Rinse chops, then pat them dry. Sprinkle with spices mentioned above. Then dredge into pancake mix.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the chops into the skillet. Brown the chops on both sides. Remove from the skillet and place in a roasting pan.
    4. 4
      In the skillet, now saute the onions and mushrooms with the salt, pepper and sugar until slightly browned.
    5. 5
      Stir in the flour until absorbed. Gradually add the boiling water, stirring constantly, until the gravy thickens and boils.
    6. 6
      Place chops in the pan; cover tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake for 1 hour and twenty minutes; the chops and gravy should be a rich golden brown.
    7. 7
      Place chops on a serving platter; either place gravy on top, or strain through sieve and put gravy in a gravy boat; skim fat off top and serve.

      This was absolutely excellent! The gravy was delicious and creamy, and the pork was as tender as I've ever had. This is not only a keeper, it's now a permanent part of our rotation! Thanks so much for posting it. If the other recipes are even close, I'll be buying that cookbook right away!

      This recipe appeared years ago in a newspaper. Misplaced it in a move and I just spent hours searching for it online. This is without a doubt the BEST recipe for smothered pork chops thank you
