Smothered Pork Chops are amazing over fluffy white rice or buttered fluffy mashed potatoes. Either works. Growing up we normally ate deep fried, seasoned pork chops. No gravy. Ever since I tried smothered pork chops at a restaurant in Texas, I’ve been hooked. I make these all the time now.
My mom approved and she’s one of the pickiest eaters I know. It’s normally the other way around, where the kid is the picky eater and the parent begs the kid to try new things. Well definitely the opposite with my mom and I. I served these with white rice but egg noodles would be fantastic as well.
