All I can say about this dish is, Mmmmmmmm! This has to be one of the ALL TIME favorites of my family. What’s not to love about it, with it’s fork tender pork chops and lovely onion-y gravy! It’s sure to please YOUR family as well. Here’s what you’ll need:
FOR THE PORK CHOPS:
3 lbs. center cut Pork rib chops, washed and patted dry
1 1/2 tsp. Seasoned salt (I used Lawry’s brand)
1 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. Onion powder
1 tsp. Black pepper
1/2 tsp. Accent
2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/4 cup Vegetable oil, for frying; more may be needed
3 Tbsp. Butter
1 large Onion OR 2 small, sliced into thin rings
FOR THE GRAVY:
2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 tsp. Black pepper
1/4 tsp. Accent
1/4 tsp. Salt, optional
2 soup cans whole Milk
Sprinkle the combined seasoning liberally over each pork chop piece and set aside. Continue doing this until all the pork chops have been seasoned. You should still have some seasoning left.
Add the all purpose flour to a 1 gallon ziploc bag and then add to it, the remaining seasoning left that you used to season the pork chops.
Heat about 1/4 cup Vegetable oil in a non-stick skillet on medium high – medium heat. You may need to add more as you fry the pork chops.
Combine the flour and seasoning mix well in the bag and then lightly flour the pork chop pieces, a few at a time. Shake off excess and set aside while oil heats up.
Add the pork chop pieces, a few at a time into the hot skillet to fry. We are only browning the pork chops, we are not cooking it. Once browned and golden, remove to a baking pan. Continue frying until all the pork chops are done.
Place the pork chops into a deep baking dish, single layered. At this time, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. This will give it enough time to heat up while you’re preparing the dish.
While the pork chops are frying, peel your onion and slice them thinly into rings; as if you were making onion rings.
Add 2-3 Tbsp. butter to the same fry pan and allow it to melt. Add the onions and fry until golden.
Fry the onions until golden in color.
To the pork chop layer in baking dish, top off with some of the fried onions.
Mix the ingredients for the gravy into a bowl and whisk together to combine well.
Pour some of the gravy over the layer of pork chops.
Add the rest of the pork chops to form another layer, top with the rest of the fried onions, and then the rest of the gravy mix…..
Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for about 1 hour and 30 minutes OR until pork chop is for tender.
Remove the foil wrapper during the last 15 minutes of the baking time to brown the dish.
