Sour Cream Pork Chops

What is it about comfort food and cooler weather? As much as we love these Sour Cream Pork Chops, it just isn't a dish I think about making in the middle of summer. But, put our high temps in the 60's and I am all about the creamy goodness these pork chops exude. We made these night before last and my daughter was begging me to make more last night.

Here's what you need:
Center cut pork chops, Cream of Mushroom soup, sour cream, brown gravy mix, water(not pictured), onion(also not pictured), minced garlic butter
Here's how you make it:
Start by sauteing the sliced onions in a tablespoon of butter until translucent in a large frying pan (preferably one with a lid). Add in the garlic and cook for a couple of minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
Sprinkle pork chops with some seasoned salt and pepper. Put remaining butter into the pan and begin browning the pork chops.
In separate bowl, mix together the Cream of Mushroom soup, sour cream, brown gravy mix and water.
Once the pork chops are browned, pour the soup mixture into the pan.
Return the onions/garlic to the pan as well and stir to combine.
Place lid on pan, reduce heat to low and cook for 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the thickness of your pork chops. Flip the chops every 15 minutes to ensure even cooking.
Sour Cream Pork Chops

1 lb. center cut pork chops
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 packet of Brown Gravy mix
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup water
1/2 onion sliced
1 tsp. minced garlic
2-3 Tbsp. butter
seasoned salt and pepper

In large pan with a lid, brown onion and garlic in butter. Remove from pan and set aside. Add 1-2 tablespoons butter to pan and brown the pork chops for a few minutes. In separate bowl, combine soup, sour cream, brown gravy mix and 1/3 cup water. Pour over the browned pork chops and add back in the onions and garlic. Put the lid on the pan and turn the burner to low. Simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, unless using thin cut pork chops, turning every 15 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or noodles.

This dish is a winner in our house. I love that it uses simple ingredients and tastes delicious. If we had the "Clean Plate Club" in our house, my kids would have been VIP members.  Nothing was scraped off their plate before going into the dishwasher. I'd say that was a successful dinner.

  13. We are trying this recipe tonight. We added a containter of sliced mushrooms and sauteed them with the onions and garlic. We added a little white wine to deglaze the pan and may add some chicken broth later. Looks and smells delish!

  17. Stopping by from Titus 2sdays. I am pinning this, because we eat a lot of pork chops and my husband loves sauces like this (especially mushroom ones). I think I'll try this next week for "new recipe night". Have a great day. Blessings from Croatia: A Little R & R: www.littlerandr.org

  22. I make a similar recipe, but substitute Fat-Free Greek Yogurt for the sour cream, and instead of cream of mushroom soup, I use a combination of Low-Sodium Chicken Broth and White Wine, adding Sauteed Mushrooms. It's still comfort food, very tasty, but less sodium and fat.

  23. Temperatures in the 60a is cool for you. Good lords, where are you from? Here in Wyoming, especially on a day like today, that would be a heat wave.
    The chops look like they are to die for by the way.
