Pork Chops and Special Gravy

Pork chops have always been a hearty dinner, but today’s Pork Chops and Gravy takes this tasty meal to another level.

Serves: Six
Time: 1hr 15 min


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 pork chops
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 500g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red or white wine
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons water

Preheat the oven to 175°C. Heat olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Season chops with salt and pepper, then fry them for about two minutes on each side, until slightly. Place the chops into to a baking pan and set aside.

Melt one tablespoon of butter in the pan, then add garlic and sauté until fragrant.

Pour in the mushrooms, wine and beef broth, making sure to scrape all the flavorful pork bits from the bottom. Add the thyme and bring to a boil, then pour the liquid over the pork chops. Cover with a lid or aluminium foil and cook in the over for about 25 minutes. If chops are thick, they may need more time. Remove your chops from the pan and set aside.

To make your gravy, simmer the pan juices on the stove over medium heat. In a cup, stir together the flour and water, then add in the remaining butter. Once the juices come to a boil, stir in the flour mixture and cook until thickened. Spoon gravy over the chops to serve.

Serving suggestion: you can also change the recipe by using pork steak or pork schnitzel.

    Most of the readers of this program are age pensioners many living alone. Why are most of these recipes for families?

    Also this 'programme' (this isn't america Sen.Cit84 ) never heard it called that before,is also there for just the two of them as the children have left home at this point . Also, a lot of these are from the USA, noticed how the measurements are not in mls. or grams, they are still behind the rest of the world, being one of only 3 countries still using the old ounces, weight and liquid.
