Smothered Pork Chops

By flowox

Category: Pork

4 pork chops
1 teaspoon seasoned salt1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
all purpose flour
1/4 cup bacon drippings or vegetable shortening
1 large onion, sliced
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup water

Wash pork chops and pat dry. Mix seasonings together. Rub on chops ( approximately 1/4 teaspoon per chop) Reserve remaining seasoning for gravy. Lightly dust chops with flour. Heat drippings in a large, heavy skillet. Add chops and brown each side, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Remove chops from pan to a warm, paper-towel covered platter. Remove all but 1/4 cup drippings from pan. Add sliced onion to pan and saute until almost transparent. Add 3 tablespoons flour and remaining seasoning to the pan and brown. The trick is to get the flour as brown as possible without burning it or the onion. Add water and stir. Return chops to pan and add sufficient water to cover. Bring to a quick boil; reduce heat to low; cover and simmer about an hour or until chops are fork tender. Season to taste with additional seasoning mix, if desired.
Serves 4
