Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons bacon fat or 1 tablespoon each butter and olive oil
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless top loin pork chops 1-inch thick and butterflied (see notes)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 teaspoon thyme leaves stripped off of stem
  • cups low-sodium chicken broth

Instructions

  • Heat a large (12-inch) cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Combine the flour, mustard, season salt, garlic powder and pepper in a shallow dish.
  • Dredge the pork chops and shake off any excess.
  • Work in batches searing two of the pork for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to your slow cooker and repeat with the remaining pork chops.
  • In a bowl or 2-cup liquid measuring cup, whisk the remaining flour mixture with the broth and pour over top of the pork chops in the slow cooker.
  • Add in fresh herbs.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
  • Remove pork chops to a plate. Whisk the gravy and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve pork chops on egg noodles or mashed potatoes with peas, green beans or roasted brussels sprouts.

Notes

I would suggest another hour or two for bone-in pork chops.
