Step 1

Place the flour in a shallow platter; add the onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly, set aside.

Step 2

Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels to remove any moisture and then dredge them in the seasoned flour; shaking off the excess.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet or cast-iron skillet over medium heat and coat with the oil. When the oil is nice and hot, lay the pork chops in the pan in a single layer and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove the pork chops from the pan and add a little sprinkle of seasoned flour to the pan drippings.

Step 4

Mix the flour into the fat to dissolve and then pour in the chicken broth in. Let the liquid cook down for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly. Stir in the buttermilk to make a creamy gravy and return the pork chops to the pan, covering them with the sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes until the pork is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.

The seasoning and flavor of the chops and gravy are spot on. I seem to have a problem getting pork chops tender. These had a short cooking time, and I followed the instructions exactly, but these chops were still very tough. But the flavor and gravy were good. So maybe it was the pork I purchased?
