Smothered Porkchops

Smothered Pork Chops


1 cup flour 

2 Tbsp onion powder 

2 Tbsp garlic powder 

1 tsp red pepper 

1 tsp salt 

1/2 tsp black pepper

 4 thin pork chops 

2 Tbsp bacon fat

2 Tbsp olive oil 

2 cups buttermilk 


Chopped fresh parsley or green onions, for garnish, optional 

Mix together flour, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper, salt, and black pepper in a pie plate. Coat pork chops in flour mixture; shaking off the excess. 

Over medium heat in cast iron skillet, melt bacon fat and oil together well.

Gently lay pork chops in skillet; fry about 5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove pork chops from skillet.

Mix ½ cup flour mixture and buttermilk together well; pour into skillet, stir into hot fat; bring gravy to boil then reduce heat to simmer until nice and thick, stirring often.

Return pork chops to skillet; cover with gravy. Simmer for 5 minutes or so until pork chops are cooked through. Season with salt and pepper; garnish with chopped parsley or green onions if using, before serving. 

Variation: May sauté onions and or mushrooms with pork chops and add to gravy mixture.
