Pork Chops New School

I LOVE fried food… I am a southerner at heart.  Fry it and I will eat it.  I am trying to do the right thing and resist my fried urges.  I am trying to make sure my family eats healthy.  What’s a girl to do… Oven Fry Something!

Oven frying is easy as can be and no mess.  And most of all you get the taste you might be craving without the guilt!  Done… oven fried pork chops with onion mushroom cream gravy is on the menu!

Oven Fried Pork Chops

  • 4 center cut pork chops about a 1/2 inch thick
  • plain bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oregano

Take a baking sheet and spray lightly some Pam or other nonstick spray.  Heat oven to 350.

In 3 dishes place flour in one, egg in the other and bread crumbs in the last.  In the flour shake a bit of salt, pepper and garlic powder.  In the egg a shake of salt and pepper.  In the bread crumbs a shake of oregano and mix each so the spices are evenly distributed. 

Start with the flour and dredge the chop in it, move on to the egg covering both sides, then finish with the bread crumbs.  Place chop on the baking sheet and continue till all chops are coated.  Lightly spray Pam on the tops of the chops and place in the oven.

Cook for 15 minutes and flip the chops over and cook another 15 minutes.

Mushroom Onion Cream Gravy

  • 1 cup chopped Portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 packet of dry onion soup mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbls beef soup base
  • 1 tbls corn starch
  • 4 tbls water

Saute your mushrooms in olive oil till they are slightly soft.  In a sauce pan add mushrooms, onion soup mix, 2 cups water and bring to a nice boil.  Add your beef soup base and cook another 3 minutes.  Take your corn starch and mix with you remaining water till smooth.  Add to the sauce pan, gravy should be at a nice boil.  Cook another 3-4 minutes so the starch cooks down and things get thick.  If it is not thick enough for your liking make another starch mix and slowly add to your sauce till it is thick to your liking.  Add the sour cream and cook till hot again.

OH was that delish!  It hit my fried spot without really doing too much damage!  Everyone loved it even Maddy!  She was not partial to the gravy but said it was OK for a gravy!  I will take that as a high compliment from a 7 year old!  Jim said it was a keeper!  Mind you he polished off two chops, two potatoes and a pile of gravy!  I am going to say he is right!  A keeper indeed!

Love,
