Smothered Pork Chops


  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Season the pork chops with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the sliced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the onions and garlic, stirring constantly to make a roux. Cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth, heavy cream, dried thyme, and paprika. Bring to a simmer and cook until the gravy has thickened, about 5 minutes.
  6. Return the pork chops to the skillet, spooning some of the gravy over the top. Cover and cook on low heat for 20-25 minutes, or until the pork chops are tender and cooked through.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot with mashed potatoes or rice.
