Pork Chops

  • 4 large bone-in pork chops about 1 inch thick
  • 1/2  teaspoons  salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Onion Gravy

  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup water
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Season pork chops with salt and black pepper on both sides. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear pork chops until golden brown on both sides, about 5-7 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F. Transfer pork chops and juices to a plate.
  • In the same skillet, add oil and reduce heat to medium, then add onion slices. Stir constantly until onion is browned and caramelized, about 12 to 15 minutes. Add in garlic and flour, stir for about 3 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth, buttermilk, water and juices from pork chops into skillet. Stir and mix well. Bring the mixture to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Cook until sauce is thickened, for about 15 minutes.
  • Add pork chops back into the skillet, spoon sauce over to coat.
  • Adjust levels of salt and pepper and serve pork chops with onions and gravy
