GABBY COOKS – pork chops

Clean & serene living means learning healthy habits and good eating.  And I love recipes that are quick and simple.  Here’s one of my new favorites.

These are the ingredients

  1. (2) 1″ THICK BONELESS PORK LOIN CHOPS
  2. (1) CLOVE GARLIC, SMASHED
  3. (1/2) STICK BUTTER
  4. (1/2 LB) FRESH, SLICED MUSHROOMS  more if you love mushrooms like I do
  5. (1) TBSP FLOUR
  6. UP TO 2 CUPS MILK whatever it takes to create a creamy, smooth gravy
  7. DRIED OREGANO AND THYME about 1 tsp each depending on your taste
  8. SALT AND PEPPER TO TASTE

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a fry pan, melt the butter over low heat
  2. Stir in the crushed garlic.  Maintain a med/low heat.  Don’t want any scorching of the butter or the garlic
  3. Add the chops and brown on both sides to a light, golden crust – just a few minutes
  4. Remove the chops
  5. Add the mushrooms and stir to coat with the pan butter
  6. Sprinkle the flour over the mushrooms and stir again to coat evenly
  7. Cook the flour till it turns golden – just a few minutes
  8. Add the milk, stir, add more to bring to a creamy consistency.
  9. Add the herbs, stir again
  10. Salt and pepper now or wait until cooking is done
  11. Return the chops to the pan, spoon gravy over them
  12. Cover and cook over low heat for 35 to 40 minutes
  13. I enjoy these chops served with a packaged rice pilaf mixture
