Tips for Cooking Pork Chops
- Always use a meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature of pork chops.
- I recommend pulling pork chops off of the heat source 5 degrees below the safe internal temperature, and letting them rest for 5-10 minutes to come to proper temperature (145°F). This will give you perfectly tender pork chops.
- A cast iron skillet is best for searing pork chops.
- If you're here for a sauce to save overcooked pork chops, here's another tip: slice the pork chops very thinly (about ¼-inch) against the grain. This ensures the cuts will be much more tender.
- You can use any of these sauces for boneless or bone-in pork chops, following any cooking method. Just note the timing for each recipe so you can plan ahead.

- Wooden spoon
- 1 large yellow onion peeled and cut into ¼ inch-thick slices
- 3 cloves garlic peeled and minced
- 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 cups chicken broth
- Heat a skillet on the stove over medium heat and add vegetable oil. Once hot, add sliced yellow onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to caramelize, about 10-15 minutes. Stir in minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.1 large yellow onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
- Push the onions and garlic to the side of the pan. Add butter to the center of the pan and, once it melts, mix in flour. Continue to stir until the mixture becomes golden.2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- Slowly add chicken broth while continuously whisking to remove any lumps. Then, mix the mixture with the onions and garlic, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring the broth to a boil, then reduce to medium-low and simmer until it starts to thicken, about 15 minutes.2 cups chicken broth
- Yellow onions are perfect for caramelizing. They have a slightly higher sugar content, which will result in the perfect golden-brown color.
- The longer you caramelize the onions, the richer the overall flavor of the gravy.
- Once the onions begin to turn an amber color, keep an eye on them. The process of caramelizing happens quickly, and they can burn easily!
- To avoid lumps in your gravy, take the time to sift you flour first (or cornstarch for gluten-free gravy).
- Making gravy ahead can save you time in the kitchen. Simply reheat the gravy in a small saucepan on low heat and whisk as needed.
