Crock Pot Smothered Pork Chops


Southern comfort food is mouth-watering. Lol, if I could I would eat it every day. I mean come on who wouldn’t? It’s fattening, savory and last but not least it’s delightful. Some of my favorites are; chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes with gravy on top. Yum, yum! Haha! 😀

I also LOVE slowly cooked pork chops smothered in gravy. And it just so happened that I needed a comfort food fix lol. So on Thursday morning, I prepared this Crock Pot Smothered Pork Chops recipe. It’s incredibly easy, you think people might not look twice at it because the ingredients are very simple, but man, it is so good! Like lip-smackin’, call yo Momma good!

 What is your go-to comfort food for dinner?

Crock Pot Smothered Pork Chops

Ingredients:

4 bone-in pork chops (or boneless)

1 envelope onion soup mix (1 oz. packet)

1 (14 oz.) can chicken broth

1 can (10.5 oz.) cream of chicken soup 

1 envelope dry pork gravy mix (1 oz. packet)

1 tsp. garlic powder

Directions:

1. In a small mixing bowl combine onion soup mix, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup and pork gravy mix and stir well. Pour mixture into your crockpot. (I recommend a 4 or 6 Qt.)

2. Rinse and pat dry pork chops. Next, sprinkle both sides of the chops with a little bit of garlic powder. IMG_0103

3. And place them into your slow cooker. Do your best to spread them out and cover with the gravy mixture. Cover and cook on low about 6-8 hours.

4. After cooking, you can serve right away with the gravy that the chops cook in, or you can thicken the sauce up some.

Optional: In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter (don’t walk away while doing this, butter can melt and then burn quickly.) Then combine three large tablespoons of flour. Continue mixing uil it forms a thick paste.

After it forms a heavy paste, and you’ve mixed it until smooth, pour in two cups of the pork gravy into the pot. What I did is getting a ladle and carefully scooping the sauce into a measuring cup.

Stir mixture constantly for another minute. The mixture will begin to thicken very quickly. Once it has thickened, remove from heat. Then combined thickened gravy with any remaining sauce in the pot. Stir well. Serve gravy over pork chops with taters (mashed potatoes). Yummy!!!!! 😀
