To the skillet, I melted one tablespoon of unsalted butter, the onion, some salt and the thyme and cooked them until almost golden brown...
About 1-1/2 cups chicken broth is added, and about a generous tablespoon of Dijon Mustard (for extra flavor)
This is, for sure, a man-pleasing meal. It's a wife-pleasing meal, in that it was pretty effortless to make.
Mashed potatoes would be a perfect side dish...
This time, I baked a couple of Yams, with a pat of butter and a drizzle of pure maple syrup.
TASTING NOTES: How can anyone fault an onion gravy? Creamy, with a nice tang from the buttermilk. I'm glad that I added a little Dijon to the recipe, for a little extra depth of flavor. The thyme was perfect. The pork was juicy, and we had leftover gravy since I only cooked two chops, instead of four. Yes, I'd make this again-- and it's easy enough to make after a long day at the office.
