Recipe: Southern Smothered Pork Chops

Southern Smothered Pork Chops are a delicious Southern favorite and is a nice change from other recipes... it really is a light creamy sauce... quick and easy to make.
You can use bone in or boneless loin pork chops.
I dredge them in a seasoned flour about 1/2 cup of flour is all you need for 4 - 6 large chops and you probably will have a bit left.  Season the flour with a sprinkling of salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
I added sliced fresh mushrooms to the original recipe.. we like mushrooms.. you can leave them out if you prefer.
I season the sauce to taste with salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.. and pinch of cayenne (optional)... a sprinkling is really all you need.
I bought thick chops and figure one chop per person.
This simple dish goes well with mashed potatoes, noodles or rice.
