Smothered Pork Chops Recipe

Servings: 4

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

Total time: 1 hour



  • 4 thick, bone-in pork chops (click here to order Florida Fresh Farms’ Pastured Pork Chops Bone In)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil, divided
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish



  1. Season pork chops all over with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix together flour with garlic powder and chili powder. Coat pork chops in flour, shaking off excess. Reserve 2 tablespoons seasoned flour.
  3. In a large, heavy skillet over medium heat, heat 1/4 cup oil until shimmering. In batches, cook pork chops until golden, 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate. Wipe out the skillet.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low, pour in remaining oil, and add onions. Season with more salt and pepper and cook until very soft and slightly caramelized, 15-20 minutes. Add butter and let melt, then sprinkle in reserved flour. Cook until flour is no longer raw, about a minute. Stir in chicken broth and heavy cream and bring to a simmer, until sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
  5. Return pork chops to skillet and cook until pork is cooked through, about 10 minutes more.
  6. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
