Marion's Butterfly Pork Chops and Gravy

Marion's Butterfly Pork Chops and Gravy

Ready in 1 hour

My Mother in Law was from Illinois. When she cooked, she could really cook! Being from the south, I had only had pork chops fried in a skillet. This is her recipe.

"These chops were delicious. The only thing I altered from the directions was the cooking time. I baked my chops for 40 min. They were perfectly cooked, nice and tender. No knife required. Gravy was perfect. A great simple recipie for a busy week night."

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large cast iron skillet, preferably with tall sides, heat a small amount of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Add the pork chops that you have seasoned with salt and pepper. Brown on both sides for 7 minutes per side. Add water to about 3/4 the way up the sides of the pork. Cover tightly with lid and place in a 350 degree oven for about an hour. (This is called braizing) Remove meat, set aside and keep warm. Heat the skillet with the remaining water and drippings to a boil. Mix the flour and a little water in a container to make a slurry. Add to the boiling drippings and stir. When it comes back to a boil, add more water if necessary to thin gravy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer 5 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes.

I browned the chops and got them in the oven, ran some errands, and finished the dinner when I got home. Perfect!

These pork chops were amazing! Very tender. I garnished with parsley and served with garlic mashed potatoes, pasta salad and fresh local squash. I also made the gravy with brown rice gravy for flavor and to make this recipe gluten free.

I love this recipe. Simple, ever so flavorful. My family asks for pork chops this way instead of grilling.
