Smothered + Covered Onion Pork Chops - Top 10 Recipes of 2017

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.

Don’t you love cooked onions? They add so much flavor to your savory meals and they smell amazing.

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.)

      Yay!! I am so glad you tried them. Adding mushrooms is a great idea, and I will do that the next time I make them. (I’ve thought about adding some peas and carrots, too.)

    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.

      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.

    Is this possible in the crockpot?

    • Reply
      January 17, 2018 at 7:18 pm

      I am a firm believer that just about anything is possible in a crockpot. But I have never tried it. You wouldn’t want to cook the pork too long or it would dry out and lose texture. If you try it let me know how it works out.

    What does your all purpose seasoning consist of?

    • Reply
      January 27, 2018 at 10:29 am

      Glad you asked! It really varies, but I’m into two or three all purpose seasonings right now that I love. I mostly use a spice blend from So La Seasonings, low sodium version. It is a great all around spice.

      I also like the new Himalayan Salt + Garlic Spice blend from McCormick. You can find it just about anywhere (Kroger, Walmart, Publix, etc.)

      And, there’s always Lawry’s All Purpose seasoning, and even a salt-free option like Ms. Dash. Whatever you like to use will work, just adjust the amount to your taste preference.

    If your trying to curb your carb intake instead of potatoes try roasted cauliflower, I put the cauliflower on a pan spray Pam or what ever you like to use put it in the oven at the same time you do the porkchops salt and pepper do one side for 10 mins flip it and do the other side for 10 it tastes so good
