Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, for garnish

Directions

  • Put the flour in a shallow platter and add the garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly.
  • Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels to remove any moisture and then dredge them in the seasoned flour; shaking off the excess (note: keep a couple tablespoons of the flour mixture)
  • Heat a large saute pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat and coat with the oil.
  • When the oil is nice and hot, lay 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 a tablespoon or two of seasoned flour to the pan drippings.
  • Mix the flour into the fat to dissolve and then pour in the chicken broth in.
  • Let the liquid cook down for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly.
  • Stir in the buttermilk to make a creamy gravy and return the pork chops to the pan, covering them with the sauce.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes until the pork is cooked through.
  • Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

Notes

These are great served with some buttermilk mashed potatoes!
