Smothered Pork Chops

Smothered pork chops are 1 of my faves! Add rice or mashed potatoes and I am in HEAVEN! They are always so tender & juicy, the recipe is pretty much goof proof! They always remind me of Sunday dinner when I was a little girl.


  1. I do not give measurements for salt/pepper because we use it to our taste. If you use seasoned broth, you will not need as much. If you use unsalted broth, you will need more.

2. Always adjust the temperature according to your stove. Stoves Heat differently, I have an electric stove, you may have a gas stove.

3. When making your gravy, slowly add the broth and whisk . This will prevent flour clumps and it will prevent you from making your gravy too thin or too thick. You or may not use all the broth.
4. Add whatever you like to your gravy. Some people like to add bell pepper & mushrooms. Make it your own!
