  • 1 envelope pork gravy mix

"Good, right at the end added more chicken broth to the gravy since it was too thick. Served with the smashed potatoe recipe ! The two were great together!"

"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!"

"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."

"I make my own gravy all the time. Pour off all but 3-Tbsps of oil from frying pork chops. Add enough all-purpose flour to make a thin paste. Brown flour slightly. Add enough water to make a thin gravy. I always make it thin to begin with, and let it simmer until thicker. Add salt and pepperto taste. The longer it simmers, the better the flavor. easy as that!"

"I made this without the use of gravy mix and it was very good. My mother used to make gravy with everything by just creating a roux with some of the cooking oils and meat juices and water. I have always followed her lead and never been disappointed. My husband is always surprised at how easy it is to make gravy and how good it tastes. Does require addition of salt though."

"Both my husband and I really liked this.

I usually make my own gravy, but for some reason had the gravy mix. This was a very good use for it. Very tasty! I made the recipe as is, but only used two pork chops.
I will make this again for sure."
