    Default Smothered Pork Chops for Dinner

    Easy peasy.

    Season pork chops or pork steaks with salt & pepper. Pan fry until lightly
    browned. Remove the chops from the pan and then saute 1/2 a sliced Vidalia
    onion with 2-4 cloves of minced garlic in oil until lightly browned. Stir
    in flour then add chicken broth and stir until sauce is slightly thickened.
    Add a bit of buttermilk (see my previous posts for making homemade
    buttermilk). Add the pork chops back to the pan. Spoon the suace over the
    chops. Cover and simmer for about an hour, until the chops are fork tender.

    Serve with rice or mashed potatoes and the vegetable of choice.

    I eyeball it. About 1/4 c. of flour, just enough to coat the chops. A half
    a cup of broth.

    I should have said I lightly coat the chops in seasoned flour. For that you
    need a 1/4 c. This is one of those things I make up as I go along

    How much flour and how much chicken broth or are we on our own on
    this??



    Equate the flour/liquid/fat ratios to a blond roux.

    1T fat + 1 T Flour = will thicken 1 cup of liquid

    If you intend on frying the flour longer to a brown stage you'll need more
    flour to achieve the desired thickness.

    If you've ever made a white sauce/velouté, you will be able to eyeball
    it.... shoot for 2T fat, 2 T flour and 1 cup of liquid. Use more or
    less liquid, depending on how thick or thin you want the gravy. Use a
    regular onion, if you think Vidalia is too sweet - I'd substitute some
    sliced mushrooms and add a few drops of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire
    sauce.

    I said "vegetable of choice". You can serve this with whatever vegetable
    you'd like. Spinach, mustard greens, collard greens, turnip greens... green
    beans, whatever

    Yes...doing boneless pork loin with a Madeira Cream sauce
    also......just love those flavors.

    The Fine Art of Cooking involves personal choice.
    Many preferences, ingredients, and procedures may not
    be consistent with what you know to be true.
    As with any recipe, you may find your personal

    Sounds good. I make a similar "Asian flavor" dish. I had a pack of
    sliced pork butt "pork steak" and wanted something different. Basically
    do the same thing except add some ginger and a splash of soy sauce and I
    thicken it with a corn starch slurry at the end.

    No surprise but your "pork fly lice" establishes you as being totally
    stuck in the past and with no imagination to boot.

    Borrowing flavors from one cuisine to use in another is called "fusion
    cooking". If I construct a smothered pork dish incorporating some Asian
    flavors it is still a smothered pork dish.

    I was deeply into imaginatve cookery probably while you were still in
    your daddy's scrotum.

    Your pork is not smothered, it's very ordinary oriental cornstarch
    slurry slop... no imagination whatsoever, zero... you just attempted
    to hijack Jill's dish... you failed, failed miserably, and got
    caught.. bad, bad, bad. Now go Fusion Hawaiian... shove a pineapple
    up your Dumb George ass. LOL-LOL
