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.

How to Make It

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 3

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

This recipe was a great weeknight comfort meal with minimal effort.  The gravy is absolutely delicious and is similar to a breakfast style that would go on biscuits and gravy.  I made the mashed potatoes by hand with some garlic and scallions but otherwise followed the recipe as is.  My only complaint: not enough gravy, I would 1.5x the recipe.  The entire family liked it (kids included) and my husband liked it so much he ate two whole chops.

Fabulous! I had extra time so I made mashed potatoes from scratch. They were excellent with gravy! Yum!

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.

Simple and delicious! The only thing we changed was cooking the flour a bit in the pan before adding the milk. And watch your pork carefully, the last 7 minutes over cooked the pork a bit, but overall very good!

This is a fab recipe. I've used it many times through the years. However, it used to have a higher rating than it does now. I am from the south and know what good country pork chops taste like and this is it. I've served this to my husband many times and he's never complained. He probably thinks this is an inherited recipe. Anyway, it's a good recipe, try it!

Love this recipe! So easy and so good. Hard to believe it's light. I served the pork chops and gravy with leftover roasted root vegetables and salad instead of the mashed potatoes.
