Smothered Pork Chops

This one of the favorite dishes I cook for my family on Sundays. I try to eat as light and healthy as possible during the week, so come Sunday I can indulge in whatever my heart desires. This one is scrumptious and Sunday-worthy! This recipe is actually by Tyler Florence, and is super easy to execute!


What you’ll need:

  • 4 – 6 pork chops
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • fresh parsley, chopped

In a shallow bowl or platter combine the flour, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, salt and pepper. Mix well. Dry off the chops, and dredge them in the flour mix. Heat the olive oil in a saute pan, and pan fry the chops 3 minutes on each side.

Transfer the chops into a sauce pot. Add a pinch of the flour mix to the oil in the saute pan and scrape up any pieces stuck on the bottom with a wooden spoon. Let the mix thicken in the pan. Add the chicken broth. Stir in the buttermilk to make a creamy gravy. Add the the gravy mixture to the pork in the sauce pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer for at least 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with mashed potatoes. Garnish with chopped parsley.


Bon Appétit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
