These smothered pork chops are tender enough for you to sink your teeth into and have enough gravy for you to pool on top of mashed potatoes too! Whether it’s the weather or just a long week, sometimes we all just need the home cooked, cozy comforting goodness of gravy. On those days, calories and cholesterol don’t count… just a good hot meal and perhaps, if needed, a nap! Lol! This meal is easy to make and can be served that night or chopped up the next day over rice or a nice piece of Texas toast. Check out the video and recipe below!
Slow Cooked and Smothered Pork Chops
- 1 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp Coleman’s dry Mustard
- 1/4 tsp Rosemary, chopped
- 1/4 tsp Thyme
- 1/2 tsp Parsley
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
- 3 Tbsp Canola Oil
- 6 Boneless Loin Pork Chops, about 1 inch thick
- 2 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
In a Ziploc Freezer bag, place ½ cup of flour and remaining spices (Mustard, Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley, Garlic Salt and Black Pepper) in the bag.
Place oil in skillet and begin to warm it on low. Place a chop in the bag and shake to distribute flour mixture on all sides of chop. Place floured chop in skillet and begin to brown in skillet. Continue with each chop and make sure to brown chops on all sides.
After browning chops, transfer the chops to a large crock pot and turn on high.
Mix the flour mixture from Ziploc Freezer bag with the other ½ c of flour and place in mixing bowl. Whisk in broth until the mixture is the consistency of a slurry*. Pour over the chops. Chop up two onions and place over the chops and broth mixture. Cook on high for one hour and then take a spatula and lift chops off of crock pot bottom. (To prevent sticking an scorching.) Turn crockpot on low and continue to cook for 4-6 hours. Serve with rice or mash potatoes and green beans! Don’t be surprised if people scrape the last bit of gravy from the pot!
*Slurry –a thin paste of water and starch (in this case flour) which will thicken as it cooks. So, if your mix looks a bit watery for gravy…never fear…it will thicken as it slow cooks!
