This is a man’s meal. Not to be sexist or anything. Ladies love pork chops. But Smothered + Covered Onion Pork Chops is a dinner recipe you can keep in your back pocket when you need to feed a hungry man. You know, when you get “Honey, what are we eating tonight?” and he has that I-need-a-pork-chop look on his face.
Oh, you know the look I’m talking about?
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.
In the same pan, cook the onions until they are caramelized and yum!
Don’t you love cooked onions? They add so much flavor to your savory meals and they smell amazing.

Smothered Onion Pork Chops
- 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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a shallow baking dish with non stick spray. Set aside.
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.
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.
Place the browned chops in a single layer in the bottom of the baking dish. Set aside.
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.
Stir in the Worcestershire sauce until well combined. Add the flour. Stir and cook for 2 minutes until the flour is well incorporated.
Gradually stir in the water, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Taste and reseason as desired.
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.)
