Pork Chops and Mushroom Soup Gravy

Super tender pork chops with a creamy mushroom gravy. This is comfort food at its finest and it is really quick and easy to make.

    Pork chops cooked to almost spoon tender. Creamy gravy just begging for a pile of mashed potatoes. They come together quick and easily for a delicious, stick to your rib kind of meal.  This family favorite is a great way to get supper on the table without a lot of fuss.  It will leave everyone feeling full and satisfied!


   This has always been one of my favorite dinners.  It is nothing fancy, but it is always so good.

    MiMi doesn't know where she got the original recipe, but she has been making it for as long as I can remember.  I really like thicker bone on pork chops for this, but really any pork chops will do.

     This particular day the meat counter didn't have any.  So I had to make due with thick cut pork loin chops.  Don't worry, they were still delicious!

   When you make it, plan to make mashed potatoes and green beans.  You have to have them.  It is just how it goes.

   It is a perfect meal on a cold and snowy evening. It is so warm, comforting and filling.

   But don't worry, they are also delicious on a spring day. Or summer. Or fall.  We really love it all year long.


We normally make pork chops and mushroom soup gravy in an electric skillet.  You could also make it on the stove top or in a slow cooker.

    My whole extended family fell in love with Cavender's Greek Seasoning for a long stretch of my childhood.  It went on everything, eggs, vegetables, meat... whatever we ate.

    My aunts, grandma and mom all had it in their spice cabinet and it came out often.  So it is no surprise that we generally put it on these pork chops as well.

   If you don't have Cavender's, a healthy dose of salt, pepper and garlic will go a long way.  Just look at this, it is comfort on a plate.


Tips and Tricks

We like using a large electric skillet for making these pork chops.  It offers a lot of surface area for browning, room for the gravy and great temperature control.

An electric skillet is not absolutely necessary though.  You can brown them and place them in a slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-4 hours.

You can also make them in a big pan on the stove. Just keep the heat low once you add the gravy and everything will be great!

If you don't want to fuss with mashed potatoes, the gravy would also be great over egg noodles or rice.  We just tend to always default to mashed potatoes and green beans as our side dishes.

More delicious pork chop meals:

Our family loves this pork chop and cheesy potato casserole.  It combines two favorites in one dish! It is another great filling and flavorful meal.

Braised pork chops are another great electric skillet entree.  The sweet and savory braising liquid is full of flavor and the results are super tender.

  7. I actually have Cavender's--it was a recent first time purchase. I can identify with using your electric skillet for this recipe. I have certain things that I make only in certain pots/pans. Funny how we get so accustomed to doing things a specific way. Thank you for stopping in and linking with See Ya in the Gumbo this week. Oh, and I agree--definitely serve up those mashed potatoes with this one!

    1. We use Cavender's on everything! I use it on my veggies, in my eggs and of course in this! It is great on chicken too. I was just thinking this morning that I might need to do more of a post on it, as probably not everyone knows what I am talking about! Thanks for hosting!
