Smothered Pork Chops – With Cheese Onions & Gravy

Smothered Pork Chops

Pork chops have never really been my thing, until now that is. I have both cooked and eaten them so many different ways, but I have never come across a version that I REALLY liked. I had definitely never eaten a pork chop and craved it later. Tonight, that all changed. These Smothered Pork Chops may actually be the only way that I eat pork chops from here on out.

I always recommend using bone-in pork loin chops. They are a leaner cut of meat and the bone will give you so much great flavor. These are usually thicker cut chops, but please alter your cooking time accordingly if your chops are on the thinner side. Because this is a lean cut of meat, it can dry out very easily.

This is a great dinner option for a low-carb diet! Just pair it with some veggies and enjoy a nice filling meal. If you are all about those carbs like me, add some mashed potatoes to your plate, throw on your stretchy pants and enjoy. Either way you do it, make sure you get a nice ladle full of those onions and that sauce and pour it all over.

These are the ingredients that you will need for these smothered pork chops:

  • Pork chops
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Thyme
  • Garlic powder
  • Butter
  • Onions
  • Beef stock
  • Flour
  • Swiss cheese
