This Smothered Pork Chop recipe proves that you don’t need a bunch of unhealthy flour to make a delicious gravy.

The gravy in this dish gets its rich flavor from the browned bits in the pan, and it’s SO damn good.

(PS – All of my recipes are what I call ‘throw-together’. You won’t see much measuring. This makes them super easy!)


Smothered Pork Chops


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 2-3 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 carton sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • few dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 bag baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  1. Sprinkle both sides of chops with salt and pepper and saute in butter over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness.

  2. Remove from pan and keep warm.

  3. Add sliced onion and sliced mushrooms to pan along with beef broth, a sprinkle of garlic powder, and a few dashes of Worcestershire.

  4. Season with salt and pepper, and cook until veggies are tender, scraping browned bits off the bottom of the pan as you go.

  5. Add in baby spinach and heavy cream. Stir until spinach is wilted.

  6. Add chops back to the pan and simmer, covered, for 4-5 more minutes, or until chops are cooked through.

  7. Serve veggies and gravy over chops.

Hey! I’m Julie.

I help busy moms feed their families healthy foods in a lot less time.

I’m the founder of Well Fed Families, a mom of three kids who I had over the span of 21 years (I like doing things slowly sometimes), a lover of food, and an 80’s rock fanatic. I also dig jail shows and anything from the 1940s.

As you can tell from the above I’m a little weird. I‘m also a little funny (okay, sometimes a lot funny).

But one thing’s for sure…..I’ve been doing this healthy eating thing for my family for a loooooong time.

And most importantly? Moms who are feeling overwhelmed by that whole concept are my HEART! I want to help you in any way I can, because I know how hard it can be sometimes. 

So take a load off and stay a while. I’m super glad you’re here. <3

Psst…before you leave be sure to grab the free cookbook below! It’s my little way of saying thanks for checking out Well Fed Families….

Does dinner time stress you out?

Hate being tied to the kitchen when you get home, when you just want to RELAX already?!

I feel ya, sister.

That’s why I created a cookbook just for us: the exhausted moms who long for easy weeknights, but still want to feed our family healthy meals.

And I have a sample version with your name on it.
