A One-Pot Meal

I love meals that can be made with the fewest amount of dishes possible, and this one-pot dinner is one of those! Ok, full disclosure, you will need 2 pots, one for the pork chops and one for mashed potatoes. 😉 But all the messy work gets done in one pan…searing, sautéing and simmering, making clean up a cinch!

Pork Chops and Gravy Recipe Tips

  • Pork Chops: You can use bone-in or boneless pork chops. We prefer bone-in because they seem to be much more tender.
  • Searing the pork chops: Make sure to only sear both sides of the pork chops. You don’t want to cook them through at this stage, just sear them.
  • Salt:  Make sure to salt the pork chops before you sear them. You can also use seasoning salt.
  • Cream for the gravy: You can use half + half, 3% milk or buttermilk. Heavy cream can be used as well, but the gravy will be very rich.
  • Gravy FLOUR TIP! The gravy recipe calls for 4 tbsp of flour. What I like to do is use the leftover seasoned flour from what was used to coat the pork chops before searing. I prefer this, it makes a much more flavourful gravy. You can use plain flour or this seasoned flour, just make sure you use 4 tbsp total (you can mix and match too).
  • Bay Leaves: Make sure to remove the bay leaves before serving!
  • Broth: You can use chicken broth or vegetable broth.
  • Mashed Potatoes:  Serve these pork chops and gravy over mashed potatoes.
  • Can I make this ahead of time? This dish is best served right away.
  • How to Store Leftovers: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • Can I double this recipe? You can easily double this recipe, you’ll just need to use a large pan, or two pans.

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried sage

Garnish:

  • chopped green onions

Instructions

Pork Chops:

  1. Pat the pork chops dry.
  2. Season the pork chops with the seasoning salt, making sure to season both sides.
  3. Let rest for about 10 minutes. Pat away any excess moisture.
  4. In the meantime, on a plate mix together the flour, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.
  5. In skillet over medium-high heat, add 4 tablespoons of oil.
  6. Dredge the pork chops in the flour mix, gently shaking any extra flour off.
  7. Add the pork chops to the pan, searing each side for 2-3 minutes. The pork chops should have a nice golden crust, but they shouldn’t be cooked through. You only need to sear the outside.
  8. Once both sides of the pork chops are seared, remove them from the pan and transfer to a plate.

Making the gravy:

  1. In the same pan you seared the pork chops, turn down the heat to low-medium.
  2. Now add and melt the 4 tablespoons of butter.
  3. Then add the 4 tablespoons of flour (all purpose or the leftover seasoned flour). Whisk until the flour is golden brown (just a minute or so).
  4. Now slowly add the broth, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, sage, rosemary and bay leaves. Using a whisk, mix well and bring to a light boil.
  5. Stir continuously and make sure to scrape up all the good bits from the bottom of the pan, they give the gravy all it’s rich flavour!
  6. Add the cream, and mix well.
  7. Let the gravy simmer on low until it’s the consistency of gravy (not runny, not too thick).

Putting it all together:

  1. Now add the pork chops back to the pan with the gravy.
  2. Scoop some gravy over the pork chops.
  3. Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Make sure to turn over the pork chops about half way through.
  4. Remove the bay leaves.
  5. Garnish with green onions and serve with mashed potatoes.
