Smothered Pork Chops

I have had my eye on this recipe for a long time, however, anytime I have buttermilk in the house it seems to be used for other things. This time I decided to save some of my buttermilk to use for this recipe. These pork chops were FABULOUS. I served them alongside some mashed potatos (excellent with the leftover gravy) and a salad. I will definitely be making this again.

Smothered Pork Chops

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 pork chops, bone-in
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup buttermilk
Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, for garnish


Put the flour in a shallow dish and add onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Mix with a fork to combine. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels, and dredge both sides in flour mixture shaking off the excess

Heat a large pan over medium heat and coat with oil. Once oil is hot, fry pork chops 3 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove chops from the pan and add 3 Tbsp of flour mixture to the oil and pan drippings. Use a whisk to combine, and add chicken broth. Simmer broth for 5 minutes allowing it to thicken. Stir in the buttermilk, add chops back to pan, and cover with gravy. Simmer for 5 minutes or until pork is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with parsley.

    Tyler certainly knows his stuff and I’ve done buttermilk with chicken… just never thought of applying it to pork chops! Looks awesome!
