Mom's Pork Chops
These were such a staple during my whole childhood! When my mom went back to work when I was in the 6th grade, this was one of the meals that I learned to cook so I could fix dinner before she got home! They are so good, and such a comfort food for me!
Pork Chops (1 for each person)
1 cup flour
salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1/2 cup cold water
3 Tablespoons flour
1. Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Mix salt and pepper with flour, and completely coat each pork chop with flour mixture. Place in hot oil and brown on each side for about 2 minutes or until lightly browned.
3. Add enough water to fully cover pork chops. Simmer on low heat, covered, for about 45 minutes, making sure water does NOT boil away! If it does evaporate, add more water.
4. Gravy: Remove chops when fully cooked through. In small bowl, whisk flour and cold water together. Add to hot skillet with the water that the pork chops cooked in. Whisk until fully combined. Turn up heat to medium high, and heat until a light boil. Continue whisking and lightly boiling for about one minute, or until thickened.
5. Serve pork with gravy. Also we always serve this with rice and sauerkraut, also with gravy :)
