This recipe calls for 4 pork chops because that's about what you can fit into a standard frying pan, though I've squeezed 6 smaller chops in before. I recommend you double the recipe because my husband eats them two at a time. Serve the smothered pork chops over cooked rice with your favorite vegetable side dish and cornbread.

Directions

  1. Mix seasoned salt, garlic powder, black pepper, and paprika together in a bowl; rub about 3/4 teaspoon spice mixture onto each pork chop. Thoroughly coat each pork chop with flour, saving remaining seasoning and flour for the gravy.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat; cook pork chops in the hot oil until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate, retaining drippings in the pan. Cover pork chops with paper towels.
  3. Cook and stir onion in the drippings in the heavy skillet over medium heat until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Add mushrooms, remaining flour, remaining spice mixture, and about 1 teaspoon water if needed to moisten; cook and stir until onion is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir 2 cups water into onion-mushroom mixture until gravy is smooth; bring to a boil. Place pork chops in the gravy, reduce heat, cover skillet, and simmer until pork chops are tender, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

I do not often cook meat in a skillet, but this recipe sounded good and I felt up to giving it a try! The recipe was easy to follow, and the results were very good! The pork chops had a nice flavor, and the gravy was delicious.

I was asked to make smothered pork chops for dinner so I decided to try this recipe and I'm so glad I did....it was DELISH!!! My family and friends LOVED it so much that no one talked at dinner they were all to busy eating. I did change the recipe to make 9 servings and cooked it in a large electric skillet, very easy to prepare.

I followed this recipe exactly. It came out great... The only thing i changed is i added more onion bc me and my girls love onions, and i added a bell pepper. I haven't cooked like this in a long time. Nothing like southern cooking that soothes the soul... Thanks for your submission
