Pork Chops Braised in Milk Recipe


My husband loves this classic Italian Pork Chops Braised in Milk.  He is a gravy lover and this recipe makes its own rich tasting gravy as it cooks.  This pork dish would be excellent served with mashed potatoes.  My husband also loves his Mom’s recipe for Biscuits and Gravy!  More great Pork Recipes.

Pork Chops Braised in Milk Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


4 pork loin or rib chops (1/2-inch thick)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups non-fat, skim milk or whole milk (your choice), divided
2 teaspoons butter



Trim fat from pork chops.  

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag; add pork chops, seal bag, and shake to coat with flour mixture.  Remove pork chops from bag and set aside.  

Place the remaining flour mixture into a small bowl.  Gradually add 1/2 cup milk, stirring until well blended with a wire whisk; set aside.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, melt butter.  Add floured pork chops and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned.

Add prepared milk mixture, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Turn the pork chops over.  Add remaining 1 cup milk; cover and cook an additional 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Uncover frying pan and cook pork chops approximately 15 minutes longer or until the liquid is reduced to 1/4 cup (the gravy will be very thick - if too thick, additional milk can be added) or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degree F. on a meat thermometer.  Remove from heat, spoon gravy over pork chops, and serve.
