Weight Watcher’s Pork Chops with Onion Gravy

This is a very good dish especially with all of the onions.  Weight Watcher’s calls this dish a Southern classic – I call it tasty!

  • 4 (6 oz.) bone-in pork loin chops, trimmed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 sweet onions, thinly sliced (I used red onions)
  • 1-1/4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • fresh thyme leaves

Salt and pepper the loin chops and heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet.  Add the chops and cook about 5 minutes per side  until browned; remove and keep warm.

Add the onions, 1/4 cup of the broth and the garlic to the skillet.  Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and cover, stirring occasionally, until the onions are very tender for about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle the onions with 2 tsp. of flour and stir for 1 minute.  Add 1 cup of the broth, mustard and thyme.  Bring to a boil, stirring until the sauce thickens.  Return the pork chops to the skillet and heat through for 2-3 minutes.
