Pork Chop Supper

Teresa Ambra

I think Pork Chop Supper is one of the best recipes I’ve tried this year. This delightful “Smothered Pork Chop” recipe includes red potatoes, carrots and onion in a delicious thyme and parsley flavored gravy. It cooks fast on the stove top and makes up a fantastic one-dish meal in under an hour.

John was telling me about one of our neighbors who had gone through a lot back in mid February. She had slipped and fallen, got a concussion and injured her wrist. Her husband had been slated for surgery. They had to call children in from across the country to take care of them. After a few updates a couple of days in a row, I said, “We need to take them a meal, don’t we?” We had planned on going to the store that day anyway, so on the off-chance that they would say “yes” to a meal, I picked up the stuff we needed for this recipe, a salad, and some muffins.

When we got home from running errands, she said she would be delighted to have a home-cooked meal (rather than take-out). So John put our favorite bread in the breadmaker. I whipped up a salad and some Applesauce Raisin Muffins and then began this tasty main dish. They loved the meal, and thought the “smothered pork chops” reminded her of the way her mother used to make something similar when she was a child.

There are only a very few minor changes I’d make the to the recipe. First, because this recipe cooks much faster than the original recipe indicates, use smaller whole red potatoes. Don’t cut larger red potatoes up as the recipe states. The potatoes will cook too fast and be done too quickly. I used baby carrots, which I liked better than sliced carrots. Also, when it comes time to add the thickening for the gravy, remove all the ingredients to a platter and keep warm. Add the thickening paste and after the gravy thickens, add the meat and vegetables back into the gravy to warm through.

The only other change I made was to add some fresh, minced parsley after everything cooked. I wouldn’t think the parsley would make that much difference, but it really increased the flavor of the dish so much that I wouldn’t leave it out. I gave the recipe to a friend who was looking for a recipe to take for someone in her community group that needed a meal. She ended up making it with all my different suggestions and she and her husband loved it as well.

Pork Chop Supper is one of the tastiest one-dish supper meals I’ve tried in a long time. It is one of those recipes that I think would work well with chicken and perhaps cube steaks as well. We loved every bite. 🙂

Add potatoes (see note in recipe card below). I would use whole petite red potatoes NOT cut up.

This is easier if you remove the meat and vegetables to a separate platter and keep warm. Then add the thickener to the broth in the pan and stir until broth has thickened and made a gravy. Return meat and vegetables to skillet. Spoon gravy mixture over meat and vegetables. Season with additional thyme and fresh, minced parsley, if desired.

Equipment

  • 1 14-inch skillet with lid
  • 1 sharp knife to mince parsley
  • 1 plate
  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • 1 cutting board

Ingredients
  

  • 8 boneless pork loin chops (3/4-inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 2 tsp. sea salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 1/4 lbs. small red potatoes wash but leave whole
  • 12 oz. bag petite baby carrots
  • 1 large onion cut in wedges
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp. fresh parsley minced for garnish (or 1 tsp. dried parsley)

Instructions
 

  • Dredge pork chops in flour.
  • Save any unused flour; set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Brown pork chops on both sides.
  • Sprinkle chops evenly with half of the thyme, half of the salt and all of the ground black pepper.
  • Wash red potatoes, but do not peel.
  • Add potatoes to skillet along with baby carrots and onion.
  • Add beef broth and bring to a boil.
  • Sprinkle with remaining thyme and salt.
  • Reduce heat and cover with lid.
  • Simmer pork chops and vegetables for about 30-40 minutes, or until chops and vegetables are tender.
  • (If chops are still tough, simmer up to an additional 20 minutes).
  • Use leftover flour by spooning into a measuring cup. 
  • Add water to make a thin paste.
  • Remove vegetables and meat to a platter and keep warm. (See note below).
  • Gently stir flour mixture into skillet and mix with the broth to make a gravy.
  • Add meat and vegetables back to the skillet and spread out so they’re not crammed together.
  • Spoon gravy over top of the meat and vegetables and heat through.
  • Sprinkle meat and vegetables with additional thyme, if desired, and fresh, minced parsley.
  • Serve.

Notes

NOTE: The original recipe called for cutting larger red potatoes into ¾-inch cubes. So the potatoes don’t get overcooked, I think it is better to put small, whole red potatoes in the skillet. (Don’t cut the potatoes so they overcook).
 
NOTE: The original recipe called for this recipe to be cooked 50 minutes after the original simmering. I found this to be way too long. The chops and vegetables were cooked in about 30 minutes.
 
NOTE: I would use about 2-lbs. of small red potatoes, unpeeled and left whole for this recipe.
 
NOTE: You may find it easier to remove all of the meat and vegetables to a platter and keep warm while you add the flour paste to the broth to make the gravy. After the broth has thickened, add the meat and vegetables back to the skillet and spoon gravy over everything before serving.
 
NOTE: While you can leave off the parsley, I think this recipe is better with it rather than without it.
 
NOTE: Because I wanted a little more gravy, once I removed all of the meat and vegetables to a separate platter to keep warm, I added an additional one cup of beef broth. Then I added the flour/paste mixture and brought the mixture to a slow boil. Once the gravy thickened (in about two to three minutes), I added the meat and vegetables back into the skillet and sprinkled the whole with fresh parsley before serving.
