You’ll notice the recipe calls for quick mix, this is our homemade version of store bought Bisquick, but you could use pancake mix in a pinch as well.

You’ll Need:

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Gravy
2 onions, peeled & sliced
4 ounces of sliced raw mushrooms
1 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon Butter
1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups boiling water

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Rinse chops, then pat them dry. Sprinkle with spices mentioned above. Then dredge into the quick mix.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the chops into the skillet. Brown the chops on both sides. Remove from the skillet and place in a baking dish.

In the skillet, melt the butter, add the onions and mushrooms, saute, season with the salt, pepper.

Add the the flour, stirring well to coat and cook 1 full minute. Gradually add the boiling water, stirring constantly, until the gravy thickens and boils.
