4 large pork chops (bone-in, about an inch thick)
1 tsp poultry seasoning
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp butter
1 large yellow onion (sliced)
4 cloves garlic (minced)
1 1/2 c. chicken broth
1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. water
2 tbsp vegetable oil
- Season both sides of the pork chops with poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper.
- Using a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat vegetable oil. Cook pork chops for about 5 minutes per side, and then transfer to a plate.
- Get rid of the excess oil from the skillet and melt butter in the same pan. Add onion and a little bit of salt and cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes or until onion is browned and caramelized.
- Add garlic. Cook for 1 minute.
- Add flour. Cook for about 2 minutes.
- Pour chicken broth into the pan. Check if there is juice that has accumulated on the plate that contains the cooked pork chops. Add it to the skillet.
- Add buttermilk and mix until smooth.
- Add water, bring the sauce to a simmer, and reduce heat to low. Cook until sauce is thickened. This may take about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Place pork chops into the sauce. Make sure the meat is all coated.
- Simmer until pork chops are tender and cooked through (10 minutes).
- Add salt and pepper if needed.
- Serve porch chops with gravy on top.
