  6. Pour the liquid from the skillet into a 1 cup measure; remove fat from liquid and discard cloves. Add water to liquid until it reaches a full 1 cup if necessary.
  7. Return this liquid to the skillet.
  8. In a cup, blend 1 tablespoon flour and 2 tablespoons cold water until smooth, gradually stir this into the liquid in the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until thickened. Serve with the chops.
