Gluten-free smothered pork chops made with onion gravy. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes and a vegetable for a delicious and hearty meal.
4 bone-in pork chops, 1 – 1 ½ inches thick
salt and pepper
1/3 cup coconut or olive oil
1/2 cup gluten-free flour (I use Better Batter Gluten-Free Flour Mix)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
3 cups gluten-free chicken broth
Place pork chops on a cutting board and use a meat mallet to pound the pork chops to 1/2 thick. This helps tenderize the meat. Salt and pepper each pork chop.
In a shallow dish, mix the gluten-free flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, pepper, and thyme together. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dip the pork chops in the flour mixture, coating both sides, then add the chops to the skillet. Save the flour mixture for later. Cook for 3 minutes on each side and then move the chops to a 9 x 13 baking pan and set aside.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the sliced onions to the skillet. Stir occasionally and let them cook for 7-8 minutes until translucent and then add minced garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
Stir in the reserved flour mixture and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Then slowly stir in the chicken broth and bring to a low boil.
Next, carefully pour the onion gravy over the chops in the casserole dish. Cover with foil and place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 350°.
Serve the pork chops with the gravy spooned over the top.
