Great lightened version of a classic dish. I make real mashed potatoes from scratch and I add a full tsp of black pepper to the gravy.
Pork Chops with Country Gravy and Mashed Potatoes
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.
