HOW TO MAKE PERFECT SMOTHERED PORK CHOPS AT HOME

  • We use bone-in, 1-inch thick pork chops. You can use boneless pork chops and adjust cooking time so that they won’t be overcooked. Brown the pork chops first to get the outside nice and crispy.
  • Cook onions and the sauce in the same pan as the pork chops. Don’t clean away any pork bits from the pan as they add extra flavour into the sauce!
  • We use buttermilk instead of milk for the best creamy and delicious flavor.

HOW TO MAKE SMOTHERED PORK CHOPS SAUCE

  • Onions might seem to be too much before you cook them. Don’t worry, because they will cook down and shrink considerably.
  • Make sure your onion slices are soft and caramelized before you add liquid.
  • Many recipes call for milk or half and half for the gravy. However, I found buttermilk is the secret ingredient that produces the best creamy and delicious flavor.
  • If you use half and half, be sure not to bring your sauce to boil quickly as it may curdle.
  • Let your sauce thicken enough before you add in pork chops, otherwise, you might overcook pork chops.
