What makes this recipe special?
All made in just one pan, this is an easy recipe for smothered pork chops everyone at the table will crave.
In a bowl, whisk salt, paprika, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder together. Sprinkle seasoning to generously coat both sides of each pork chop.
Set aside 3 Tablespoons flour from your flour. With the remaining flour, spread it out on a large plate. Coat pork chops on each side with a light layer of flour.
Place a pan over medium heat and add vegetable oil. Once hot, brown pork chops on each side until golden, but not cooked through, 5 minutes per side. Remove and set aside to a plate.
Add sliced onion to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to brown and caramelize, 10-15 minutes.
Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Push onions and garlic to the side of the pan. Add butter to the center and once it melts, mix in the 3 Tablespoons flour. Stir until the flour-butter mixture is golden.
Slowly pour broth into the pan while whisking. Once mixed through and not lumpy, mix the onions and garlic back in. Scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan to mix through.
Bring the broth to a boil, then reduce to medium-low. Simmer until it begins to thicken, about 15 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and whisk in buttermilk and water. Gently add the pork chops and simmer over low heat until they are cooked through, 15-25 minutes.
Remove the skillet from the heat and serve!
