Pork Chops with Creamy Pan Gravy

Sometimes the most simple recipes yield the most amazing results, as is the case with these beautiful pan cooked pork chops and homemade pan gravy.

I cannot express how excited I am to finally get this recipe up on the blog. It makes it so much easier for me when I'm meal planning to find recipes for specific proteins or themes when it's on my blog. I have a board for main dishes on Pinterest but those are ones I haven't made yet and finding ones I have made can be a challenge because my Tested Out board is over 1000 pins and sometimes searching doesn't always have the most accurate results. This pork chop recipe is probably my all-time favorite tied with the pork chops with pickle juice gravy recipe I posted recently (and will link at the end of this post). It's crazy to me because I don't like gravy and now all these gravy recipes are my favorites. I love the simplicity of this recipe so very much. The original poster shared these with mashed potatoes - which makes sense because the gravy can go on those too. But I chose to do roasted potatoes because I don't eat gravy on my potatoes. Even if I like gravy now.

What you need:
For the pork chops:
  • 4 large boneless, thick cut pork chops
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
For the pan gravy:
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  1. For the pork chops: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook in oil, turning once, until cooked all the way through and browned on both sides. Remove to a plate.
  3. For the pan gravy: In the same pan the pork was cooked in, add cream cheese, broth, milk, garlic powder, and salt.
  4. Whisk while scraping the bottom of the pan. Once cream cheese has melted, simmer for 3 minutes, whisking occasionally.
  5. Turn off heat and add parsley and butter. Then whisk until butter has melted and gravy is smooth. For added flavor, add any juices that have settled from the pork on the plate.

As promised, the Fried Pork Chops with Pickle Juice Gravy recipe is a keeper if you love pickles. Seriously, try it! The Crumby Kitchen shared these lovely Tuscan Smothered Pork Chops which honestly look like they will be another contender for favorite pork chop recipe with gravy.
