Makeover Pork Chops with Gravy

“My daughter and I made this recipe to create a special meal. I saw all the fat that went into it, and at my age, I can’t handle all those calories,” writes Betty from Sun City, Arizona. Our pros made a few changes to the recipe to improve its nutritional profile and found that Makeover Pork Chops with Gravy captures the home-style feel of the original recipe, but with less than half the fat.

    Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/4 cups 2% milk, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • 3 teaspoons minced fresh parsley, divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (7 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter, divided
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium beef broth

Directions

  • In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and 1/2 cup milk. Combine the bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon parsley and thyme in another shallow bowl. Sprinkle pork chops with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dip chops in egg mixture, then crumb mixture.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook pork chops in 2 tablespoons butter for 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to an ungreased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.
  • Meanwhile, in the same skillet, melt remaining butter. Stir in flour and remaining salt and pepper until smooth; gradually stir in the cream, broth and remaining milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve gravy with chops; sprinkle with remaining parsley.

    This was really good. Kindof like a chicken fried pork chop. The whole family loved it. I will be making this again.
