This is delicious!!! But I didn't follow your amounts, I think you probably cook like me, and guess at the amounts to make your recipe. I used about 1/4 cup flour to add to the bacon grease, and I may be wrong with the amounts for what you do, but one cup of flour, I would not be able to brown it or make a good flavorful gravy. I would actually add about 2-3 tablespoons of the flour mixture and brown, then add less of the milk and water to make a very flavorful gravy. With the ingredients of bacon, onion and pork chops, how could it not be flavorful!!!! Thanks for posting a great recipe that I loved and so did my son and his friend with the changes I made!!!
