Cast Iron Skillet Pork Chops

It's winter here in Western New York, and there is nothing better to get you through those cold days than some good fashioned comfort food. I decided to make some cast iron skillet pork chops.

This is another quick and easy meal to put on the table after a long day at work. Fran picked up some thin cut bone-in pork chops at the grocery store the other day. I had everything else that I needed to make these cast iron skillet pork chops.

Stove top pork chops

First I minced a clove of garlic and chopped a medium onion. Heated 2 tablespoons of olive oil in my cast iron skillet. Then I cooked the garlic, and onions with 2 cups of fresh sliced mushrooms until they were tender. About 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat.

I removed this from the pan into another bowl. I added the four pork chops and browned them on both sides. Seasoned with salt and pepper. About 5 minutes per side.

After the pork chops were browned, I returned the mushroom mixture back into the skillet. Then added a 12oz. jar of Heinz Pork Gravy. I covered the skillet and let it cook for 20 minutes over medium heat.

Cast Iron Skillet Pork Chops:

Ingredients

4 Thin cut bone-in pork chops
1 clove garlic minced
1 medium onion chopped
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
1- 12oz jar pork gravy
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper

Directions
  1. Heat the oil in the cast iron skillet and cook the mushrooms, garlic, and onions over medium heat until tender.
  2. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Brown the pork chops on both sides seasoned with salt and pepper. About 5 minutes per side.
  4. Return the mushroom mixture, pour in the gravy, cover and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes.
That's all there is to it. In about 40 minutes you'll have this delicious comfort food on the table and your family is going to love it. Serve with your favorite vegetable or baked potato. We had baked sweet potatoes as our side dish.

Note: I used thin cut pork chops. If you use a thicker cut of chops you may want to cook for more than 20 minutes. The guideline internal temperature for pork is 145 degrees with 3 minutes of rest time.  

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

  1. I'm older now. I may not wish it, but simplifying is essential. Store bought gravy, chops, some onions and mushrooms. That sounds mighty good to me!
