Smothered Pork Chops

How to make Smothered Pork Chops.


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