These simple pork chops with a delicious thick onion gravy are first seared in a skillet and then roasted in the oven until perfectly juicy and tender. Served with a side of salad, rice, roast potatoes or fries, this dish makes a rich lunch or dinner in less than an hour! This is one of my husband's favourite dinners and the first one of his own recipes that I'm posting here *happy dance* (he was eagerly waiting for this post in fact), which is great because most of my recipes do not contain beef or pork as the main ingredient.

For these delicious Pan-Seared and Roasted Pork Chops with gravy, you will need the following ingredients:

How to Make Pan-Seared and Roasted Pork Chops with Gravy
These Pan-Seared and Roasted Pork Chops with Gravy may look complicated but they actually aren't.
You will start by mixing the flour, garlic powder and dried chilli in a bowl, then dip the pork chops into this mixture and make sure they are evenly coated on both sides. The pork chops are then seasoned with freshly ground black pepper and seared for about 2-3 minutes on each side in a large skillet with vegetable oil on medium-high heat. A nice golden brown crust will form. Remove the pork chops from the skillet and place in an oven-proof glass casserole.
Using the same skillet with meat juices, add chicken and vegetable stock, and simmer on medium heat. Add your fresh cream, stir to combine and remove from heat. Pour this mixture onto the pork chops in the casserole. Top with chopped onion and bake for around 20 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400F), or until the pork is tender and has reached an internal temperature of approximately 63°C (145F). I highly suggest using an oven-safe probe thermometer to confirm this.
Once ready, serve with salad, rice, or your favourite potatoes for a complete meal!
