Pork Chop Étouffée is another one to add to the collection!

Here's how to make it, and as always, full recipe text with measurements and instructions, as well as a printable document, are a little bit further down the page. Just swipe or scroll past the step-by-step pictures below.  

Season chops on both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne.


Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large, deep lidded skillet over medium heat. Add chops and brown on both sides.


Remove and set aside.


Add the onion and green pepper to the skillet.


Sauté until lightly caramelized. 


Transfer to the top of the chops. 


Add remaining oil to the skillet and begin stirring in the flour a little at a time, until fully incorporated and no lumps remain.


Cook, stirring constantly until roux reaches a light brown.


This is my favorite boxed chicken stock and what I use exclusively. It's a fantastic stock and hands above a traditional chicken broth.


Slowly add chicken stock to roux, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 5 minutes.


Return chops with the vegetables to skillet.


I wanted to add some mushrooms but didn't have any fresh. That's one reason I like to keep a few cans of sliced mushrooms in the pantry. They aren't quite the same as fresh, but I like them just fine.

Add mushrooms here, if using.


Cover and simmer on low, for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until tender and cooked through, checking occasionally to prevent sticking. Total time will depend on thickness of pork chops you're using, of course.


Remove chops to serving platter.


To thicken gravy further, sprinkle Wondra over the gravy, stirring in, and bring to a boil, or use a cornstarch slurry. Boil to desired consistency. 


Spoon the vegetables and gravy over chops and offer remaining gravy at the table. Garnish dish with parsley, if desired.
