Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Monthly Rotation
4.5 Stars

I found this recipe on allrecipes in December of 2008. Since then I've changed it a little bit. The original recipe can be found here.

2 Pork Chops
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 T. butter
1 small onion
Fresh Mushrooms (canned are fine too)
3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. water
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 1 T. of butter. If using fresh mushrooms, saute in butter with the small onion until browned and soft. If using canned, saute the onions alone in the butter until translucent.

On this night I had forgotten to buy an onion, so I used dried minced onion. It tasted fine, but fresh onion of course tastes better.

Season pork chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Melt the remaining butter in a large skillet over med/high heat.

Saute the pork chops for about 5 minutes on each side until browned.

In an 8x8 baking dish (use 9x13 if using more chops) mix together milk, water, and soup.
Place the sauted pork chops, mushrooms, and onions in the baking dish and cover with the soup mixture.

Bake covered for 45 minutes or until done.

As you can see, I lowered the number of chops used, but kept the "sauce" the same. Around here, we love our "sauce". If you don't, then you may want to cut it in half or add in the other 2 pork chops. I also added garlic because we L-O-V-E garlic here. My husband and my daughter also enjoy mushrooms and I'm learning to like them, so I added in extra for them. As for the onion, the first few times I made it without and then one night we had one and I thought, "why not" and it justs adds that little something extra. If you don't like onions, you can of course, omit it.

I rate this one a monthly dish because it is very heavy, not something you would want every week. It is very good, but you may need to play around with the salt/pepper to get it to your taste level.

I usually serve with a noodle side or mashed potatoes.



  1. I haven't made pork chops in ages. This looks delish!

  2. yes these look great! I think Im going to make this same dish tomorrow, with chicken.
