Ingredients

4 pork loin chops
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon salt, divided
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon ground black pepper, divided
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large onions, coarsely chopped
1 green bell peppers, cored, seeded and
coarsely chopped
1 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
2 cups water


Trim excess fat from the edges of the pork chops. Sprinkle each with some of the 1 teaspoon salt and pepper.


Season 2 cups flour with the remaining 1 tablespoon salt and pepper.


Dredge chops in the flour until coated on all sides, shaking off excess flour.


Pour the vegetable oil in a deep, heavy skillet, such as cast iron, over medium-high heat.


When the oil begins to shake slightly, add as many pork chops as will fit without crowding.


Fry, turning once, until well-browned on both sides, about 5 minutes.


Remove chops to a plate and repeat with remaining chops.


Pour off all but 1/4 cup drippings from the skillet.


Reduce the heat to medium and add onions, green peppers and celery.


Cook until brown and soft, about 10 minutes.


Sprinkle 2 tablespoons flour over the vegetables and bottom of the skillet.


Cook, stirring, until flour is golden brown.


Slowly pour in 2 cups water.


Stir, then cook until thickened.


Place pork chops in a Dutch oven or divide between two skillets.


Top with the gravy and vegetables.


Cover tightly and cook over low heat until pork chops are cooked through, about 15 minutes
