Smothered Pork Chops

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Washed your pork chops, pound them with a good meat tenderizer mallet, not to flatten.
  • Add a little meat tenderizer seasoning as well as your own choice of seasonings to taste to both sides of meat. For mine I use Garlic Powder, Lemon Pepper, Soul Seasoning, Mrs. Dash (No Salt) Original and Table Blend, Onion Powder and Pepper.
  • Place seasoned pork chops in a glass 13x9 pan.
  • Add enough water to the pan not to cover the meat.
  • Tightly cover with foil.
  • Bake in oven until meat is tender (you can easily pierce with a fork).
  • Check about in 1 1/2 hours, if not tender recover tightly and cook checking every 30 minutes.
  • Once tender remove about 1/2 the liquid.
  • Pour can of cream of mushroom into a bowl.
  • Take the flour and add a little cold water to make a rue.
  • Stir rue into cream of mushroom soup- this will thicken the soup as it cooks.
  • Pour mixture on top of pork chops mixing in with the remaining liquid.
  • Recover and cook additional 30 minutes for gravy to bubble around chops.
  • Gravy will thicken more once removed from oven and allowed to rest.
  • Serve with rice and veggies.
