I must say this is my new favorite pork chop recipe to date! I was getting tired of the same old same old pork chop, so I hopped up onto my trusty Google machine a pulled up this majestical recipe!
I loved everything about it, especially since they came out extremely tender juicy and savory! Who can beat that!
6 Thick Pork Chops
1 1/2 Cups Flour
2 Tbsp Onion Powder
2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 Cup Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup Butter Milk
Chopped Parsley for Garnish
*Note: Be sure to reserve 1 Tbsp of the seasoned flour after breading all the pork chops… you will need it for the gravy we will make towards the end of the recipe!
Prep all the ingredients because lets face it, it makes life easier and less of a rush while trying not to burn things!
See that there…. I made a bit of an assembly line for breading the chops…. Go me!
Add the onion & garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to the flour.
Combine well using a fork or whisk.
YAY! Perfectly seasoned four! Reserve 1 Tbsp of the seasoned flour for our gravy we will make later.
Take one chop at a time and start breading!
Firmly press into the flour…
Scoop surrounding flour over the top and press firmly.
Shake off any excess flour…
That is one perfectly breaded chop! Now onto the rest!
Just like magic!
Now get ready to start the real magic here…
Over medium heat, coat a large saute pan in the olive oil.
Allow it to get hot enough that a pinch of flour will sizzle on contact.
Once the oil is hot enough, add 3 pork chops at a time and cook for 3 minutes on each side!
Be sure you do not over crowed the pan otherwise they will steam which will result in one tough and dry pork chop!
Set seared pork chops on a plate and start working on the remaining three!
Add the reserved 1 Tbsp of seasoned flour to the remaining fat and olive oil in the skillet and whisk well the incorporate!
Reduce heat to medium low.
Pour in chicken stock and allow to reduce by half which should take 5 minutes.
The gravy is getting there!
Taking a few sprigs of parsley, start mincing them for our garnish!
…….Don’t forget about our gravy!
Now that it has reduced by half slowly add the butter milk while whisking to incorporate it in smoothly.
Would you look at that….
Whisk continuously until it is well blended and smooth.
Once again, working in batches of three, add the pork chops in with the gravy. Spoon some over the tops and allow to simmer for 5 minutes or until fully cooked. Once these are done, set finished chops aside on a plate and work on the last three, once again spooning gravy on top and simmering for 5 minutes. Repetitive, I know… But so worth it!
Once all the pork chops are done and you have them all sitting pretty on a plate…
Spoon all the gravy on top of them…
Then sprinkle with the parsley!
I know I posted a million pictures of these bad boys but I couldn’t decide on which ones to eliminate so just deal with them okay? XD
