Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -6 center-cut pork chops (center cut with BONE IN)
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 12 cups chicken broth (OR 1 cup broth & 1/2 cup white wine, if you prefer )
  • onion powder
  • ginger powder
  • 2 tablespoons oil, just enough to lightly cover the bottom of pan. I use olive oil, but vegetable oil can be used
  • Gravy

  • 14 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 dash Gravy Master

Directions

  1. Heat the oil & then brown the chops well on both sides in the skillet. Once browned, sprinkle each chop with salt, pepper, onion powder, and ginger powder. Add the broth or the broth/wine combo totaling a cup and a half, reduce heat to low & cover.
  2. Simmer for approximately 45 minutes. Spoon the pan drippings over the chops for added flavor & moistness while cooking. Serve with rice or noodles.
  3. For optional gravy: Blend 1/4 cup water and 1 tablespoon flour in small bowl until free of lumps. Add this mixture into the pan liquid and cook over low-med heat, stirring until it has thickened (you can always add a little water at this point if needed). Sometimes I add Gravy Master for color.
  4. I usually put the chops back into the pan for several minutes once the gravy is done to make sure the dish is hot enough to serve.

I followed the recipe as written and they had a good taste to them but they came out a bit dry for us.

A nice little pork chop dinner! I used boneless chops that were about 1 1/4" thick. I added a few onion wedges and a clove of garlic. Loved the mild gravy this produced too! Thanks for the great recipe!

Absolutely delicious! I think my pork chops could have been taken out of the skillet 2-3 min earlier but other than that, so good. Moist and so flavorful! The boyfriend and I both loved <3
