Recently, I came across my Grandmother’s recipe box, Yay!!! Now I have all those fantastic recipes that I can share.

            Pork Chops in mushroom gravy is one of my favorites. This is an original recipe, a one pan ordeal, and it has the best homemade gravy there is. None of the condensed cans of soup for this tasty comfort food.

Talking about comfort food, is there anything better than warm meat and gravy on a chilly night? Absolutely not!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What type of mushroom should I use in the gravy?

This is such a simple recipe that you can use whatever type of mushroom that you have available. This time I used a can from the store.

Can I use hot sauce?

If your family likes a little kick, then by all means, add a drop or two to the gravy.

How do I store the leftovers?

Allow the meat to cool completely. Place meat and gravy into an airtight container. The dish will last for 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator or up to 2 months in the freezer.

How can I reheat this dish?

You can place the meat and gravy into a skillet and heat until internal temperature is 155*.  You could also place in a baking dish and place in a preheated oven. Cover the baking dish with foil and heat until heated through.
