1poundbone-in pork chops
1packagedry onion soup mix
Chopped parsleyfor garnish - optional
Chicken broth (if needed to thin out gravy)
1/4cup All-purpose flour
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.
If your gravy is to thick, you may not have had enough pan drippings from the pork chops. Whisk in a little chicken broth (recommended) or milk until you are happy with the consistency.
