These turned out great and I will definitely use this recipe again. I followed the recipe exactly, but made a few slight modifications. I didn't have tomato, so I had to leave that out. When I browned the pork chops I cooked the onions with them. While that was cooking, I grabbed a bowl and mixed together the water, basil, thyme, flour, and chicken bouillon. I find that my gravy comes out smoother if I mix the flour with liquid before adding it to the pan. I think next time I make these I will try dipping the pork chops in the flour mixture, and I will forget the plastic bag. The bag ended up being a little messy and the pork chops weren't evenly coated. Other than that, I think I'd keep everything the same.
