4 center-cut pork chops, 1-inch thick
Ground cayenne pepper (optional)
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour, spread on a plate
2 mediums green bell peppers, stemmed, cored, and membranes removed, cut into strips
2 yellow onions, trimmed, cut lengthwise
3 cloves garlic, minced


Trim the excess fat from the chops and season well with salt, pepper, and cayenne. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Lightly roll the chops in flour, shake off the excess, and slip them into the pan. Brown well, about 3 minutes per side, and remove them to a plate. Add the bell peppers and onions, to the skillet, and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about half a minute longer. Push the vegetables to the side of the skillet. Add chops to pan and place vegetables on top of pork chops. Pour in the broth and sprinkle with Worce




I am always on the look out for new ways to cook pork chops. A couple months back I caught pork chops on sale for .99 lb. So of course I ended up buying a few large packages and stock piling them. Those are the sales I just love stumbling on. Today's recipe comes courtesy of my favorite girl Paula Deen!!! I was watching Paula's Home Cooking and she was making Low Country Smothered Pork Chops. The recipe was so easy to prepare and Paula was cutting the pork chops with a fork in the end. So you know those things had to be so tender. All those peppers and onions looked so divine. I used fresh green bell peppers from our garden. We served our pork chops with mashed potatoes, but i think it would also be great served with rice. It makes a such a wonderful sauce.
