How can you prepare the Smothered Pork Chops?

  2. After you do so, take a shallower dish, and in there, you want to mix the chili powder with the garlic and flour. 
  3. The next step is to try and coat these pork chops with flour. Don’t use all the flour; try to keep 2 tbsp aside. source:
  4. Use a heavy skillet and heat around a quarter cup of oil until you see that it starts to shimmer. Start cooking the pork chops; you can do that a few at a time. We found that doing around 4 minutes per side is suitable. Wipe the skillet, lower the heat a bit and then add onions and the remainder of your oil.
  5. At this time, you want to season with some more pepper and salt, then cook for 20 minutes or less, until the meat has that caramel feel. 
  6. You want to continue by adding some butter, sprinkling the remaining flour, and stop only when the flour isn’t raw anymore.

This is when you add the pork chops back, and you will have to cook it for 10 minutes.
