Mikl's Magical Smothered Chops
This is a southern favorite. In fact, just about anything “smothered” is a hit! However as smothering goes, this is less fattening than most. Slave pairs it with french cut green beans and plain white rice!
As with any pork recipe, the thicker the better. Since these chops were cut thin they didn't take as long to fix.
4 bone-in pork chops
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 large yellow onion, sliced thinly
½ teaspoon garlic
4 to 5 oz mushrooms (slave found a bottle of Shiitake that were great)
1½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
1½ cups chicken broth
¼ cup buttermilk
Slice the onion on a mandolin in very thin slices. Peel and mince the garlic.
Note anytime you cook a pork chop remember to make cuts in the band of fat that goes down the one side. Otherwise you get a pork “cup” instead of a pork chop!
Serve this with plain white rice and a nice green vegetable (like green beans).
This will make your tummy say: “Thank You: can I have another?”
Lets sing along with Garth!
Sloppy old fashioned dishes like this are fun to serve once in awhile. Remember all things in moderation!
To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
