How do you make gravy for pork chops?
The best part about making smothered pork chops is that the gravy is part of the meal! Not only sauce the sauce keep the pork extra moist, but you can continue to smother it after it's plated.
For this particular recipe, my gravy is a mixture of onion, chicken broth, cream of mushroom soup, and sour cream. I am quite particular with the type of cream of mushroom soup that I use and love the kind Trader Joe's offers.
Great side dish suggestions to go with smothered pork chops:
- I'm a big fan of mashed potatoes. Two of my favorite mashed potato recipes are my Gorgonzola Celery Root Mashed Potatoes and my Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes.
- Prefer sweet potatoes instead? You might want to try making my Mashed Sweet Potatoes recipe.
- You can't go wrong with a perfectly cooked baked potato. Like, ever. You'll never make them any other way once you make my Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot) Baked Potatoes.
- You always need some kind of green veggie on your dinner plate! Here are some of my favorite options: Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, Perfect Garlic Sauteed Asparagus, Wilted Garlic Spinach, and Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad.
