Pork chop food porn, anyone?

Yeah, made a new dish the other night -- smothered pork chops. Turned out well, if I do say so myself. Where to begin?

How about at the beginning? You will need 1 cup of flour, 2 tablespoons each of garlic powder and onion powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of cayenne (or red pepper), 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 4 bone-in pork chops, roughly 3/4 inch thick, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1 vcup of chicken broth, and 1/2 cup of buttermilk:


Combine the flour, onion and garlic powder, salt, cayenne and pepper in a shallow dish and mix it up right:


Dredge you pork chops in the seasoning mix:


Plate those suckers:


Heat up the olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat, then slap those chops in there:


Cook about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown:


Once again, plate those suckers. Add some of the seasoned flour to the pan:


Stir the flour into the pan drippings:


Add the chicken broth:


Let that cook down a little to thicken, about 5 minutes, then add the buttermilk to creamy it up, stir it all together until smooth. Mix it up right, people:


Put the chops back into the pan:


Cover those bad boys with the sauce, simmering them for about 5 minutes:


Pull them out and plate again:


Serve with rice, corn, peas,  bread or whatever. Suit yourself:


Bon appetit, y'all.
