Smothered Pork Chops

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.
