Pork Chops with Sour Cream Onion Sauce, from Gael

Pork Chops with Sour Cream Onion Sauce, from Gael

Tried this in March 2008 from AllRecipes.com. I loved the sauce -- very much like stroganoff -- but Rob hates sour cream so I made his without sauce. I also only used 2 chops, and certainly did not cook them for an hour as mine were pretty thin.

6 pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons paprika

Saute onion and garlic in hot butter. Trim excess fat from chops and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brown chops in skillet; pour off fat.

Lower heat, add bay leaf and chicken broth. Cook covered over low heat for 1 hour. (NOTE FROM GAEL: This seemed way too long for my thin chops, so just check them until they are cooked through. Mine took about 25 minutes.) Transfer chops to a serving plate, but keep them hot.

Heat juices in skillet and reduce to half. Add the sour cream, onion-garlic mixture and paprika, blending thoroughly. Heat through, but don't boil. Pour over pork chops and serve.
