I stepped back to my childhood with this recipe. This is my Mom's way of fixing pork chops to a "T". After seasoning, I fried boneless pork chops in a cast iron skillet; let simmer in the gravy for about 25 minutes, after browning. Didn't have to use the Kitchen Bouquet, nice golden brown and deliciously tender. Thanks, Lazyme, for a wonderful dinner. Made for Andi's Farmhouse Cooking event in Cooking Photos.
