Smothered Pork Chops Recipe

These smothered pork chops are pan-roasted to perfection and then simmered in a delicious caramelized onion gravy and finished with fresh herbs.

It’s an incredibly easy to make one-pan meal consisting of pork chops,  caramelized onions, and a homemade gravy that makes for the perfect  weeknight meal.


– thick-cut bone-in pork chops – oil – unsalted butter – yellow onions – garlic

Season the pork chops well on each side with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Add the oil into a large frying or cast-iron pan over high heat until it begins to lightly smoke.

Next add in the pork chops and butter and turn the heat down to medium-high and cook for 3-4 minutes or until very browned.

Turn the pork over, baste, and cook for another 3-4 minutes and set aside. In the same pan turn the heat down to medium and add in the onions and cook for 5-7 minutes or until lightly browned.

Next, stir in the garlic and cook. Stir in the flour until completely mixed in and then add in the stock and turn the heat up slightly to medium-high and cook until it becomes thick like gravy.

Add the pork chops back in the pan to heat them up and finish by stirring in the heavy cream. Garnish with optional finely minced fresh parsley, rosemary, and thyme.
