Pork chops with onion and mushroom gravy

These smothered pork chops are perfect for you if you love juicy, flavorful, and extra delicious, pan-fried pork chops! You can easily pair this dish with anything because it is so versatile. If you are in the mood for a starch to complete your dish, try serving the pork chops over a pile of mashed potatoes or rice to soak up the sauce, or add roasted veggies to the plate.

This recipe is the definition of classic southern comfort food! The pork chops are crispy and smothered in an onion gravy that is perfectly rich. We all know that the best way to eat a pork chop is smothered in sauce and let me tell you… this recipe has plenty of it! I guarantee your dinner guests will be asking for seconds!

What sides should I pair with the pork chops?

You can never go wrong with pairing cornbread with any pork dish! Or a nice, toasted piece of French baguette or a slice of artisan bread is also a great choice. Add a green vegetable like baked asparagus or broccoli to tie your meal together for a hearty and balanced plate. Don’t forget the mashed potatoes or rice!

I recommend pairing this smothered pork chops dish with a boldly flavored wine, like a pinot noir. While pork is a mild protein, the rich and creamy onion gravy calls for a big, bold wine to refresh your palate.

How to store your leftovers

Once pork chops are thoroughly cooled, store them in an airtight container and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
