I must admit, smothered pork chops were something I had not tried before we switched to all real food eating, so I don’t technically know how they are supposed to taste. I do know that this version is really, really good, so while it may not be an exact replica of the not-so-healthy version, it is delicious!

Delicious Smothered Pork Chops!

These smothered pork chops are also a very quick meal and my husband and kids all love it. It came together in less than 30 minutes and only requires one pan to prepare! It’s faster to prepare than my roasted pork tenderloin with lemon parsley oil.

    I was wondering about thick pork chops and the cooking time of 5 mins per side? Mine are over an inch thick. Should I cook them longer?

    This sounds lovely. I don’t avoid wheat flour (but use only organic); I have no problem digesting gluten. However, I’m lactose-intolerant. I’m going to try making these with concentrated homemade poultry stock (mostly turkey, simmered for several hours to release the calcium etc from the bones. And lots of onion + some garlic as well as a small sweet red pepper just to make it pretty. And mushrooms, of course.
