Smothered Pork Chops and Sausage

Recipe by SharleneW
READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • Mix ingredients for seasoning mix together in a small bowl and sprinkle generously on both sides of pork chops.
  • (Save the extra seasoning mix to add to the sauce later if you think it needs more seasoning--I tossed it out, and then wished I had a little bit more to make it a little spicier).
  • Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add the pork chops, a few at a time and cook them until they are lightly browned on both sides (about 2 minutes per side).
  • Remove the pork chops to a platter and set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium.
  • Add the flour and stir constantly until the roux is the color of peanut butter, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the onions, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring, until the onions are slightly soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, bay leaves, chicken broth and water.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Return the pork chops to the pot.
  • Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
  • Add the smoked sausage and the potatoes.
  • Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
  • Serve with either steamed white rice or rice pilaf.
