Onion Pan-Fried Pork Chops

Background and History:

Onion pan-fried pork chops are a classic comfort food dish enjoyed by many around the world. The dish features pork chops that are seasoned, pan-fried to a golden perfection, and topped with a savory onion gravy. It’s a hearty and satisfying meal that can be traced back to traditional family recipes.


  • 4 pork chops
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • In a shallow dish, combine the flour, paprika, salt, and pepper. Dredge each pork chop in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess.
  • In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are browned and cooked through. Remove the pork chops and set them aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the sliced onions and minced garlic. Sauté until the onions become tender and translucent.
  • Sprinkle a bit of the seasoned flour over the onions and stir to combine. This will help thicken the gravy.
  • Gradually whisk in the chicken broth and milk, making sure there are no lumps. Allow the mixture to simmer and thicken into a flavorful gravy.
  • Return the pork chops to the skillet and let them simmer in the gravy for a few minutes to heat through.
  • Serve the pork chops with a generous spoonful of the onion gravy.
