These creamy smothered pork chops are a family favorite at my house. Made with perfectly seasoned and seared thick-cut pork chops, these beautiful-looking chops are juicy and flavorful. NOT dried-out or rubbery. Served smothered in a homemade mushroom and onion gravy, it is true that although pork chops are delicious on their own, they’re even better with a comforting mushroom-filled sauce. If you enjoy easy dinners and delicious comfort food, then you’re going to love this recipe. And so will the whole family.
Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and generously season with salt and pepper.
Sear the pork chops until golden brown on each side. Remove from your skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, cook the onions and mushrooms until soft and caramelized, then season with Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, minced garlic, salt, and pepper.
To make the sauce, melt the butter with the onions and mushrooms and mix in the flour. Slowly add the chicken broth and bring to a gentle simmer. After a few minutes, add the heavy cream.
Return the pork chops to the pan and smother with the homemade onion and mushroom gravy. Continue to cook the pork chops until cooked through.
