An Easy Pork Chop Recipe, Southern Style Smothered Pork Chops

Share With Others:

  • This easy pork chop recipe is a southern favorite. The pork chops are covered in thinly sliced ​​angles and gravy, and simmered to a flavorful finish.

    Choose a thicker sliced ​​pork chop that is an even thickness throughout. Chops that are an even thickness will cook evenly with less drying.

    Start the chop at a high heat to brown quickly, then finish at lower heat on the stove in the gravy. This produces a more tender and juicy chop.

    Watch your heat and do not overcook. Overcooking will cause the chops to dry out. Serve this with a nice bread or biscuit to soak up the extra gravy or over rice. Excellent!
