    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    This is an all time favorite dish of ours. To get maximum flavor do not use an expensive cut of pork chop such as center cut. You need to use the "assorted, family pack" bone-in type chop. You also must brown your chops VERY well. Well browned chops are another secret to this dish. I was always doubtful that I would like this type of recipe when I would see it in cookbooks. DH saw this recipe on a cooking show and decided to try it. We enjoy this as a late morning brunch or a Sunday supper. The prep time includes the cooking time for the grits. Treat yourself and use the old fashioned grits and not instant. There is no comparison between the two. It is a long cooking time but is well worth it.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 assorted type bone in pork chops

    • cooked old fashioned grits (Not Instant)


    1. 1
      Season pork chops heavily.
    2. 2
      In large skillet brown pork chops until mahogany in color (this will probably take about 45 minutes to 1 hour).
    3. 3
      Add coffee to skillet.
    4. 4
      Cover, reduce heat and simmer until fork tender (about 1 hour).
    5. 5
      Serve over hot cooked grits.

      My family LOVED this! It was very good and surprisingly I LOVED the red eye gravy. I made mine with boneless pork chops so it didn't take quite as long as the directions say...but they were fab nonetheless! Thanks for sharing!

      I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe, especially the red eye gravy. YUM! I added a bit of bacon grease to the gravy while it was simmering for a hour. It gave a more country flavor along with alittle salt too. The pork chops had a very nice flavor too. I just want to thank you for this recipe and know that the red eye gravy was a neat change for the standard way of cooking pork chops. Thanks for sharing!
