Smothered Pork Chops are seasoned chops buried in a flavorful onion gravy served over a bed of rice or mashed potatoes, this is pure comfort food in the middle of the week that doesn’t take too long to throw together!
Traditionally, from what I have read on the web, Smothered Pork Chops are served over rice but because Grumpy loves mashed potatoes, that is what I made. I also used a thicker cut boneless pork chop, next time, I would likely go with a bone in thinner cut so if you do make this recipe, I do recommend that is what you do. The thicker cut chops, in my opinion and after this experience, would probably be better for a stuffed chop, rather than a smothered one.
Sometimes after a hard day at work, I want comfort without a lot of work. I admit, I’m one of those people who after cooking dinner, I totally do not feel like doing anything else after I eat. This dish has minimal clean up and tons of flavor. A win-win situation!
I think my most favorite part of this meal was the gravy. It was super flavorful! I could have eaten a plateful of potatoes smothered with the gravy alone! That is how much I loved this meal! If you’re in need of some comfort with awesome flavor, be sure to try this recipe out. I know I will be making it again!

4 large pork loin steaks
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 large onion, sliced
1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup half and half
1/4 cup water
Mix together salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and 2 tablespoons flour. Coat pork chop with flour mixture on both sides. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place pork steaks in hot skillet and brown well on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
Melt butter in same skillet that pork was browned in. Reduce heat to medium and add onion slices with salt to taste. Cook until onions are caramelized, about 15 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook 1 minute more. Stir in flour and cook 2 minutes.
