1. Pork Chops with Red-Eye Gravy

Pork chops can sometimes be a bit tough, and dry if overcooked. This pork chops and gravy recipe is fantastic because it adds a thick, velvety gravy to the pork chop, infusing both moisture and tenderness into the meat. A Southern favorite is to use drippings of pan-fried country ham and pungent black coffee to concoct the gravy. The term “red eye” comes from the appearance of the grease on the top layer.

The richness from the pan drippings gives the gravy plenty of flavor, and is the perfect topping to the pork. With prep time of 10 minutes and cook time of 20, this dish can be on the table as quickly as possible to feed your hungry brood!

4. Balsamic and Rosemary Grilled Pork Chops

For a lighter option, try this deliciously fragrant recipe. The MVP here is the balsamic vinegar, which is naturally fat-free, packed with antioxidants, and contains minimal amounts of natural sugar. Balsamic vinegar gives a tangy-sweet kick to the dish, while the herbal seasoning perfectly complements it without overpowering the pork flavor—balance at its finest. Not only will the fresh rosemary and garlic taste heavenly, but your house will smell like a real Italian trattoria.

You can prep these ingredients before heading out the door in the morning if you’d like—since you can leave them marinating in the fridge for up to 8 hours—then come home and pop them on the grill. Don’t have all day to wait on your marinade? Don’t worry. One hour of refrigeration in the glaze is all it needs.

5. Pan Seared Pork Chops with Easy Pan Gravy

Is your pantry stocked with basic kitchen staples—like butter, flour, half-and-half, and olive oil? Got 20 minutes total? Great! You can make this pan seared pork chops recipe.

When the meat is done cooking, allowing the pork to rest in foil will not only thoroughly cook the meat by raising its internal temperature but will also seal in the juicy flavor. And the combination of half-and-half, flour, and butter will create an excellent base for a creamy gravy that’s not too thick…and is a cinch to make.
