In a small bowl, combine Cajun seasoning, garlic powder, and pepper. Rub pork chops evenly on both sides with the mixture.

Dip pork in buttermilk; dredge in flour. Lightly coat both sides of pork with cooking spray.

Step 5

Cook pork, in batches, in hot oil over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Step 6

Add reserved 2 tablespoons flour to pan drippings in skillet and stir until smooth. Add milk and salt, and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Serve immediately with pork. Garnish, if desired, with coarse ground black pepper.

Fantastic pork chops and gravy. Comfort food to the max! I served this over mashed potatoes and we all gobbled it down. Loved the cajun flavor on the chops. Thank you!

10 stars. This is my favorite way to make chops, and the Cajun seasoning really adds another level of good. I served with mashed potatoes and buttered green beans.

Yum. Pure comfort food. I loved the Cajun seasoning on these. It was subtle and mild but added great flavor to the chops. I'll definitely be making these again. Thanks for sharing this nice keeper, Lori.
