Pan Fried Pork with Brown Gravy

Pan-Fried Pork with Brown Gravy is a quick and easy meal made with flour and seasonings over pork chops smothered with brown gravy sauce.

Uncooked pork chops seem like such an odd thing to have leftover. But a few weeks ago we found ourselves with a few chops in the refrigerator. When my mom was in town, we made Ranch Pork and Potatoes for her. The pork chops were on sale in a larger quantity than we needed, but we couldn’t pass up the deal. We made a quick meal of Pan-Fried Pork with homemade brown gravy with the extras.

After taking my mom back to the airport, Justin and I were trying to decide what to make for dinner. And how we could use the extra pork chops. The boys were staying the night at his parent’s house, so we needed something for just the two of us. Since we had a kid-free night, we also wanted something quick and easy. Justin was the one who decided that pan-fried pork chops sounded like a good, easy meal for the evening. I said we needed something more than just pan-fried pork because that would be too boring.

Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite foods. I prefer to make them homemade, but also keep some instant in the pantry for times like this. So we knew we were having pork and mashed potatoes. But, we were still missing something. Gravy, we needed gravy for it all.

Justin found this recipe for a homemade brown gravy using all ingredients that we had on hand. I used that as a base to make my own homemade gravy.

Step by Step

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.

Dredge each pork chop in the flour mixture until they are completely covered. Place the pork chops in the melted butter.

Fry for about 5 minutes on each side, until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Serve the pork chops smothered with warm brown gravy.

  1. Not weird at all! We stock up on meats all the time. If you peek inside our freezer you’d think we were a family of 10 lol. This looks delicious! Great idea for the chops we have in the freezer.

  2. Looking at your delicious dish reminded me of how much I love mashed potatoes. I haven’t had them in a while. Time to treat myself.

  3. So far every recipe you’ve posted had looked delicious. I’ve showed everyone one to my husband and he said, “Who is this woman and can she come cook for us?!” Lol I’m definitely saving this one too.

  4. I always love your recipes but this one is making me especially hungry. I agree that making the mashed potatoes at home is always better. But if you need to you can have some premade stuff in a pinch. I will have to try this out at home really soon.

  5. Oh wow this sounds so good. Andrew would love it! I am not a huge pork person but I be I could do something similar with chicken!

  6. This is really good idea and hope you guys enjoyed it and had a great night. I like the mashed potatoes idea as well. I think we will add it to the list, thank you for sharing it.
