READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Penny R

A creamy delicious pork platter with a creamy gravy. Dress it up with crackled red skin potatoes. Best of all I made this for under $5.00.

I took a picture, but with the gravy it was monochromatic, and didn't photograph well. These were really good. I made the recipe as stated, except I used Cavenders Greek Seasoning instead of just salt and pepper on the pork chops. I felt just the salt and pepper wouldn't be enough. I made the gravy as stated. But I think it would be better if you reserved a tablespoon of grease, and made the gravy with flour, adding the milk slowly. I had no lumps, but I whisked the whole time. My son thought I just used Cream of Chicken Soup, so I spent alot of time making the gravy that I really didn't need to spend. This was good, but not extraordinary.
