For the Pork Chops:

4 MEDIUM bone-in pork chops.

Salt and black pepper to taste.

1/2 Cup.Of all-purpose flour.

2 Tbsp.Of vegetable oil.

For the Gravy:

1/4 Cup.Of unsalted butter.

1/4 Cup.Of all-purpose flour.

2 Cups.Of chicken broth.

1 Cup.Of whole milk.

1 small onion, finely chopped.

2 cloves garlic, minced.

1 Tsp.Of dried thyme.

1 Tsp.Of dried rosemary.

Salt and black pepper to taste.



1st Step

Season the pork steaks liberally on both sides with salt and black pepper. This is the foundation of the dish’s essence.

2nd Step

Spread the flour out on a pie plate. Coat each pork tenderloin evenly with flour by dredging them in the flour. When seared, this will create a caramelized exterior.

3rd Step

In a large skillet over medium heat, boil the vegetable oil. Add the pork steaks and sear them for approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side or until beautifully browned. Transfer the chops to a platter after searing.

Making the Gravy:

1st Step

Melt the butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk continuously for approximately two to three minutes to make a roux. This will act as the gravy’s thickening agent.

2nd Step

Stir in the minced garlic and diced onion. Approximately 2 to 3 minutes, or until aromatic and translucent.

3rd Step

Pour the chicken bouillon and whole milk gradually while consistently whisking to prevent clots from forming. Allow the mixture to simmer, stirring intermittently, until it reaches the desired thickness.

4th Step

To the gravy, add the dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper. These aromatic herbs will impart a fragrant, earthy flavor to the dish, reminiscent of Grandma’s kitchen.

5th Step

Return the seared pork chops to the skillet, making sure they are ensconced in the gravy.

6th Step

Allow the pork chops to simmer in the gravy for approximately 25 to 30 minutes or until fully cooked and tender. This method of gradual cooking enables the flavors to combine gorgeously.

7th Step

Serve the smothered pork steaks with a generous amount of the flavorful gravy. Complement with your preferred side dishes, such as buttery mashed potatoes or buttered green beans.
