You know, you can only eat steak so many times. After that, you get a craving for some down-home, country cooking. And nothing says country cooking like pork chops with gravy.
Fix this recipe over the weekend and save the fuss of going out to eat. The good part is that this dish really isn’t that fattening, either.
By using low-fat milk and cutting back the amount of butter, this meal comes in at only 250 calories per serving. That’s not bad!
Pork Chops with Country Gravy
Time needed: 40 minutes
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp poultry seasoning
4 (4 oz each) boneless, center cut lin pork chops, about ¾ inch thick
1 Tbs butter
1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
Place flour, salt and poultry seasoning in a shallow dish. Dredge pork in the flour mixture, turning to coat. Save any leftover flour.
Melt butter in a large skillet coated with cooking spray. Add pork and cook 2 minutes per side, or until browned. Reduce heat and cook 10 minutes, or until done.
Remove pork to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Combine the saved flour mixture and milk in a small bowl, stirring with a fork until blended. Add this milk mixture to the pan, and bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits from the pan. Simmer 2 minutes to thicken. Serve with chops.
