  • Cook (without moving) enough to brown well, then flip over and brown the other side. Remove the chops from the pan and place it into a high-sided dish or roasting pan (If your pork chops are very thin and have cooked through at this point, skip the oven step and tent them loosely with aluminum foil while making the sauce).

  • Place the pork chops on a serving platter and loosely tent with foil and pour the sauce into the saucepan you seared the chops in a whisk in 1 tablespoon to thicken the gravy. Salt to taste and serve the gravy over the chops and (optional) onions.
