Pork Chops with Country Gravy and Mashed Potatoes

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop, 2/3 cup potatoes, and 1/4 cup gravy)
These delicious pork chops are browned in butter then simmered in a homemade country gravy until done. The five-ingredient gravy would go well over pan-sautéed or oven-fried chicken. It's also great over an open-faced turkey sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 1/3 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (20-ounce) package refrigerated mashed potatoes (such as Simply Potatoes)

How to Make It

  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt evenly over both sides of pork. Add 1 teaspoon butter to pan, stirring until butter is melted. Add the pork to pan, and cook pork for 3 minutes on each side. Remove pork from pan, and keep warm.

  2. Combine low-fat milk and flour, stirring with a whisk. Add the milk mixture to pan, stirring with a whisk. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, poultry seasoning, and black pepper. Return pork to pan. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer for 7 minutes or until gravy is thick and pork is done.

  3. While pork cooks, prepare potatoes according to package directions. Serve with pork.
