Smothered Pork Chops


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 center-cut pork chops
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced

Mix flour in a shallow platter with onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Dredge pork chops with the seasoned flour.
Shake off the excess flour.
Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and add oil.
Place the pork chops in the pan in a single layer and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Remove the pork chops from the pan and add onions.
Cook until translucent.
Remove from pan.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon seasoned flour into the pan drippings.
Mix the flour into the fat and brown.
Pour in the water.
Let the liquid cook down for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly.
Stir in the buttermilk to make a creamy gravy.
