Smothered & Covered Onion Pork Chops = delicious (and easy) dinner recipe!

My favorite part about this dinner recipe is that you can use any type of pork chops you would like. Me? I use whatever is on sale.

These were 1/2 inch bone in loin pork chops. I browned the pork chops first in a cast iron skillet. No need to cook them all the way through. Cook for a few minutes on each side to get a nice, golden brown color.

Smothered Onion Pork Chops
Author: Buy This Cook That
Buy This
  • 4 to 6 pork chops 1/2" to 3/4" thick
  • 3 white onions thinly sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 TB butter divided
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 TB Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 TB all purpose seasoning blend
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Cook That
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a shallow baking dish with non stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Sprinkle the pork chops on both sides with the all purpose seasoning blend. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium high heat.
  3. Brown the pork chops on each side. Cook each side for about 2-3 minutes, turn, and cook on the other side. Work in batches, and do not crowd the pan. Add 2 more tablespoons of the butter as needed to keep the pan greased.
  4. Place the browned chops in a single layer in the bottom of the baking dish. Set aside.
  5. In the same skillet you browned the pork chops in, add the remaining butter and the onions. Reduce heat to medium-low to medium. Stir and cook the onions until they are golden and tender, about 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce until well combined. Add the flour. Stir and cook for 2 minutes until the flour is well incorporated.
  7. Gradually stir in the water, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Taste and reseason as desired.
  8. Pour the onion gravy over the pork chops. Cover the pan with foil, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. (Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of your pork chops.)

  • Reply Oklahoma October 7, 2017 at 10:00 am So excited to have found this recipe! Most call for a gravy made with chicken broth...my hubby can't stand a pork dish with chicken broth. I know he will love this, and I plan to add mushrooms. Thank you, you have saved my Thanksgiving menu.
    • Reply Teri October 7, 2017 at 10:56 am Mushrooms are a great idea. I've actually doubled the gravy and onion part before to have extra for topping for mashed potatoes. Next time I'm going to add mushrooms and peppers. Hope you enjoy it.
