Sherry Gore, the author of Simply Delicious Amish Cooking, has graciously shared her recipe for Hand-Breaded Pork Chops with us, and we couldn't be happier. Sauteed in a pan and drizzled with gravy, this mouthwatering dish will disappear in a flash!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 (1-inch-thick) pork chops
  • Salt and pepper for sprinkling
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

What to Do

  1. In a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and butter until hot.
  2. In a shallow dish, place milk. In another shallow dish, place flour. Dip pork chops in milk, then in flour, coating completely. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in skillet.
  3. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, or until browned, turn chops over, add onions, and continue to cook 7 to 8 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink and onions are golden brown. Remove chops and onions to a platter; cover.
  4. To make gravy, melt butter in skillet, then add flour. Slowly stir in milk and cook until thickened. Stir in salt and pepper, pour over pork chops, and serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This sounds good,,,for the gravy,,,do you let the flour and butter brown a little before adding milk?

Also,,,just re-read the gravy recipe,,,! T butter doesn't sound like enough for 3 T flour.??

Hello - You do not have to let the flour mixture brown before adding the milk, but you can if you'd like. (We've also added another tablespoon of butter to the recipe - thanks for catching that!)

I do not have an iron skillet--can it be made in a regular fry pan?

Yup! A regular skillet will work fine for this recipe.

I am making this tonight!!

How or Where do you get her book?

If it's in print .... you'll find it at ... "Amazon.Com" !

Here is a link to Sherry Gore's website; http://www.sherrygore.com/book/simply-delicious-amish-cooking.htm This will tell you where you can purchase this book as well as others. Thank you!

Made this today for supper...delicious!

I love Amish recipes!

Finally, Amish recipes that are family sized. I have 2 Amish cookbooks. Unfortunately, most of the recipes are for a crowd. I'm definitely going to try this dish. Many thanks.

Do you wipe out the skillet before making the gravy?

No, there are residual flavors that will work well in the gravy.

NEVER ! .... clean the fon ( the little crisp pieces on the bottom of the pan ) from a skillet before making gravy !!! That's where the flavor comes from. And ..... it's a Cardinal sin to do so !!!!! ')

No, you do not wipe the skillet before making the gravy. The bits left on the bottom of the pan are what flavor the gravy. Enjoy!
