I got this recipe from a friend at work, it was in a collection of recipes of her mom's. It is just fabulous. I've made it with both chicken broth and white wine and didn't really notice a difference. Serve with some bread to wipe up the extra sauce.
- 4 -5 pork loin chops
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1⁄2 cup onion, chopped
- 3⁄4 cup chicken broth or 3⁄4 cup white wine
- 1 pinch thyme
- salt & pepper
- 1. Sprinkle chops with salt & pepper. Saute in butter until browned on both sides. Add onion and garlic and cook until almost tender.
- 2. Sprinkle chops with thyme, add bay leaf and broth/wine. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes (depending on how thick the chops are). When chops are done, remove and keep warm.
- 3. Increase heat; reduce liquid in skillet by half. Remove bay leaf. Reduce heat and stirring constanly add paprika and sour cream. DO NOT let boil or it may curdle. Pour sauce over chops and serve.
These chops were tender and tasty!! I followed the clear and easy steps in the recipe but used 1/4 c whipping cream mixed with the sour cream. That makes a fool-proof curdle-free gravy. Served with Parslied Egg Noodles and Spiced Carrots fior a very satisfying meal. Thanks for posting KimmieCat. Made for PAC Spring 2010.
Very Good! The sauce (gravy) is wonderful and tasty! Next time I think I will need to simmer the chops a little longer for tenderness. The onions really add flavor to this recipe. I used only 1/2 cup of the sour cream so as not to dilute the flavor of the other juices. Enjoyed these wonderful chops for dinner last night. Sprinkle some paprika on top.

Hi Kim,<br/><br/>I am the author of this recipe and Sarah's mom. I'm so glad you are enjoying this recipe which I've been making for probably 30+ years. I've served this with rice pilaf (for that yummy sauce) and a steamed vegie. I agree with your recommendation of a good bread for "sopping" up the gravy goodies. Good Eating!!!!
