"I came up with this recipe as a quick dinner for a finicky husband who's not too fond of pork chops," writes Amy Radyshewsky from Great Falls, Montana. "But these are so tender and good, he gives them a thumbs up!"

"A bit on the bland side as is, but a lot of potential as a base recipe to work off of and improve."

"I cut a pork tenderloin into chops and had to use an Onion Gravy mix since the store did not have any pork gravy mix at the time. This turned out moist and delicious!"

"I thought that this was really good and super simple! I had a friend coming up that wanted to have pork chops and gravy. I myself had never heard of it before this was just what I needed and he loved it! I will definitely keep this recipe handy for when he comes again! Wonderful job!"

"Delicious! Used brown gravy mix and browned my pork chops 5-6 minutes on each side. Added to "my favorites" recipe file."

"This was an excellent recipe and fairly fast (and easy) to make. I did not have pork gravy mix, so I used brown gravy mix. It still came out tasting great, the color was just darker than the picture of the original recipe. I only used 2 pork chops (boned), but kept all the other ingredients the same. The gravy was nice and thick, but be careful, it thickened very quickly--in about 1 minute, so it did not need the 3-4 minutes per the recipe. This one is a keeper for us!"

"I make my pork chops like this all the time. I do make adjustments for the sodium and oil though. I don't use oil when browning the chops and I add the onions after I brown the chops and add the chicken broth. I also simmer the chops about 35 minutes covered and it makes them nice and tender. I use Mrs. Dash original instead of the salt and I don't use a gravy mix. To make my own gravy I use 2 tablespoons of corn starch dissolved in a small amount of water to 2 cups of meat juice. There should be plenty after simmering. Remove the chops to a warm platter (keep warm) and bring the juice to a boil. Add the corn starch using a whisk and boil until thickened. Serve with chops. This is so flavorful you will not miss the salt."
