  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound bone-in pork chops
  • 1 package dry onion soup mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms optional
  • Chopped parsley for garnish - optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat oil in a large, oven safe, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with pepper, if desired, and brown on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Sprinkle onion soup mix over the pork chops. Pour in water.
  • Transfer to 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, until fork-tender. Remove pork chops to a plate reserving the drippings in the pan.
  • Meanwhile, in a separate small skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium-low heat. Stir in 1/4 cup flour to make a roux. Cook for a few minutes, until mixture is a light golden color. Pour into the skillet with the pork chop drippings and whisk briskly as the mixture thickens. Add the pork chops back in and serve with gravy.
  • Optional: Add sliced mushrooms to the skillet as you brown the pork chops and cook until soft and starting to caramelize.
  • Sprinkle with chopped parsley for garnish, and serve immediately.
