Today is Lil Misses 9th birthday! My little girl is growing up so fast! She is the total package, she has both brains, beauty and she is one heck of an athlete. She is my all american girl.
Since it is her birthday she gets to pick out what she wants to eat for her birthday dinner and of course she picked out one of her favorite things to eat. No not pizza, cheeseburgers or chicken nuggets. She wants pork chops and polenta. Yes, she has grown up tastes when it comes to food. So I thought for today in honor of her birthday I would share one of our new favorite pork chop recipes, Smothered Pork Chops from Swanson®.
I discovered this recipe through my work with Allrecipes as one of their brand ambassadors, Allrecipes Allstar. Last month my assignment was working with Swanson Broth. The recipes I made were great and the other Allstars had great things to say about the recipes they were trying out. So I tried out a few more recipes and wasn’t disappointed when I came across their Smothered Pork Chop recipe.
I will say I did not follow the recipe as written, I used chicken broth instead of beef. I know the horror,lol. The pork chops turned out perfect with my substitution and I have made them more than once. One of my favorite things about the recipe is the gravy. It does not use a can of cream of yuck and it is gluten free. That is a big plus for me.
Try them for yourself. You won’t be disappointed! Heck, use the beef broth too if you have it around.
What is your favorite way to make pork chops?
- 1¾ cups Swanson® Chicken or Beef Broth
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 6 (5 ounce) boneless pork chops, ¾-inch thick
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
- Stir the broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth. Season the pork, if desired.
- Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 5 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the pork from the skillet.
- Heat the remaining oil in the skillet. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring often.
- Stir the broth mixture and dijon mustard in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens.
- Stir chopped fresh rosemary leaves into the thickened broth mixture
- Return the pork to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.

The ingredient list does not include garlic but the instructions list does. So how much garlic are you supposed to use?
Sorry about that! It should have been 2-4 minced cloves.
Just made this recipe, so easy to follow and really delicious! Thanks for sharing.
Glad you liked it!
Making this as we speak and my husband says it smells so good he can smell it down the street!!!
Making this for dinner now. I used beef broth (its what I had) and added mushrooms to the onions, cause I’m crazy like that. Looks awesome and smells so good. My boyfriend is drooling. 🙂 I’m waiting to submit my comment so I can rate it.
Well dinner is over and all the plates were licked clean. Simple, tasty dinner, will make again! We loved the addition of mushrooms. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans.
I am so happy that you liked it!
Made this for dinner! It was a hit! Kids are already requesting it again.
Does it take one 3/4 cup of broth or 1 and 3/4 cup of broth?
My son raved about this recipe and he’s not fond of pork. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing!
Awesome! That is always good to hear!
I made this tonight and everyone loved it! So simple and ABSOLUTELY delicious!!
Just had this for dinner, it’s a keeper for sure, so good!! Made it with beef broth and had mashed potatoes and peas. Gravy was yummy!!
I prepared this meal for my wife last night and it was great . Great recipe
Making this for the second time. I absolutely love this recipe!!!! I’ve doubled the Chicken broth and corn starch for the gravy, and add a bit more mustard.
This was very very good. It was so easy to make and I had everything in the house for it and my husband loved it. This will go into the rotation for dinner.
