We’re still in comfort food mode around here because it’s the coldest April in 35 years, we just heard the weatherman say that.

It is supposed to be growing season, but we woke up to snow flurries and frost this morning. And when it comes to main dishes, nothing says comfort like pork chops. And we love us some pork chops at our house.

Usually I bread them and fry them and top them off with gravy or applesauce, like these Pork Chops in Creamy Wine Sauce that were super good as well.

Seriously, I think this meal would be good any time of year, it just gets seared in the skillet and let it simmer on the stove to finish off in that yummy onion sauce. The gravy keeps your pork chops so juicy and full of flavor, and then top them with a good melting cheese.

Looks and tastes impressive enough to serve guests, even your mother-in-law will think your a classically trained chef.

Here’s a tip if you find a sale on a big pork tenderloin; you can slice it yourself into nice thick boneless pork chops, and pocket those savings. I watch the sales and try to stock up when Costco has the tenderloins on special (which is quite often here). Or you can use bone in pork chops to make this French onion pork chops recipe as well.

And if you do get that giant tenderloin and need another idea on what to do with it, you might like this recipe for Trisha Yearwood’s Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin, it’s spoon tender and over the moon good!

A complete gathering of comfort foods - all in one dish. A hardy scrumptious family dinner with not much fuss, and something a little outside the normal lasagna (which I also love).

I see that water is used in the recipe, but it is not listed as an ingredient. How much water is used please? TIA

We used just a few tablespoons of water. It all depends on how thick you want the gravy to be in the end. For a thicker gravy, use less water; for thinner...use more.
