This recipe is terrific. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s different. It’s simply a pork chop and gravy recipe but our testers agreed, the gravy is very good. You’ll want to make this often.
4 loin pork chops
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup beef stock
1 cup apple cider
1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
1 bay leaf
pepper and salt to taste
- Cook the pork chops in a skillet on stovetop turning once to complete the cooking.
- Make the gravy in pan drippings. Mix the cornstarch in a little of the beef stock to make a slurry. Add the slurry to the pan drippings.
- Gradually add the remaining beef stock, stirring constantly to make smooth liquid. Add the cider, thyme, and bay leaf and cook over medium heat, stirring regularly, until the gravy thickens and is bubbly. Cook for three or four more minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Before serving, remove the bay leaf.
