Garlic Butter Pork Chops and Gravy

These pork chops smothered in gravy are incredible! Remember, check your pork chop temp for doneness to avoid an overcooked-dry piece of pork. The lemon and chicken broth in the gravy along with the toasted garlic on the chops creates the perfect balance of flavors!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2-3 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tsp Morton’s Nature’s Seasoning
  • 2-2 1/2lb bone-in center rib thick-cut pork chops
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Salt/Pepper to taste
  • Recipe

    To a large skillet on medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Season the pork chops on both sides with Morton’s Nature’s seasoning or salt and pepper. Sear the pork chops 2-3 minutes per side, then tilt to sear on the fat-cap edge. Pork chops should reach a minimum internal temperature of 145°F. Remove from the pan and set aside to rest. Turn the skillet to medium heat, and whisk in the flour, scraping up any solid bits from the bottom of the pan. If too dry to form a thick paste, add 1/2 tbsp butter or oil. Cook for 1 minute. Carefully whisk in chicken broth, milk, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the mixture to simmer 2-3 minutes. Serve the pork chops over noodles or potatoes with a ladle of gravy on top.
