This was amazing! I cut it down for just two pork chops, but left the gravy amount the same so I had plenty for homemade mashed potatoes! I will definitely be making this again and again.

Can I just say...YUM...comfort food at it's best. No leftovers at all! The only changes I made was I added the cajun seasoning (I used your cajun seasoning recipe too...awesome!) to the flour instead of rubbing it into the pork chops...I'm not big on a lot of spice, so it was my way of cutting it just a bit. I think I'll add a little more milk to the gravy next time, mine turned out a little too thick, but still was oh so good! Thanks for a great recipe, it's a keeper!

These were delicious. Hubby isn't a big pork fan but he gave a thumbs up on them. The gravy was so creamy with the half-and-half. I wonder what it would be like with chicken...hmmmm?
