onion gravy

SAUTÉ onion slices until soft and caramelized. This takes about 10 minutes. If the pan becomes too dry, add in about 1 tablespoon of chicken stock .
ADD garlic, thyme AND 1 tablespoon of the remaining flour to the pan. Cook the flour within the pan to toast it and dissolve it, which ensures your gravy doesn’t have a floury aftertaste.
POUR in some chicken stock , scraping up the browned bits from rock bottom of the pan = FLAVOUR!

WHISK within the buttermilk or heavy (thickened) cream. If you don’t have buttermilk, mix 3/4 cup milk with 3 teaspoons white vinegar and let it sour for five minutes so it’s a touch curdled.

SIMMER and return your chops to the pan, then SMOTHER them within the sauce and let it all simmer together until the pork is totally cooked through and therefore the gravy is beautifully thickened.

what sides accompany pork chops

Cornbread is usually a tasty pairing with anything that features pork. Or crusty French baguette or a slice of Artisan bread for a milder flavour. Add a cooked green veggie like broccoli or baked asparagus to your plate and you’ve got a hearty, balanced meal.

Even though pork may be a mild protein, smothered pork chops during this rich onion gravy involves bold flavoured wine. Try a pinot noir to refresh your palate.

how to store leftovers
Cool pork chops completely and store in an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to three days.
