Smothered Pork Chops

Before I became allergic to wheat, I used self rising flour for cooking smothered pork chops. When I had to go gluten free, I found that Betty Crocker Gluten Free Bisquick works just as well. You can find it at Walmart in the section with the regular Bisquick. I use it in lots of recipes. It also makes great fried chicken. It's lip smacking good!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4 servings



  1. Pour Bisquick into a container with a lid. Add small dash of salt and pepper to Bisquick. Sprinkle pork chops with a little salt and pepper. Add other spices, if desired.
  2. Place chops in container with Bisquick. Put lid on and shake well until chops are coated. Add more Bisquick if needed.

    If there is a little leftover, sprinkle it on top of chops after you place them in the hot oil. You don't want to waste any because it's not cheap.
  3. Heat Crisco in frying pan on medium-high heat. Place chops in hot oil and brown on each side.
  4. Remove chops from frying pan and place them on a plate. Pour off the oil and return the chops to the pan, adding water.

  6. Cover and bring to a boil. Cut back to simmer and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Turn chops over. Cover and simmer for 20-30 more minutes.
  7. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the pork chops. Cook on low heat until tender.

The coating of flour on the pork chop and the water combined with slow cooking is what makes the gravy or sauce on the pork chop. Not much gravy but they are moist and tender. These are also gluten free so that also makes a difference in how much gravy you have with the pork chops.

I didn't do much planning when I took pictures for this recipe. The pork chops would have been more attractive had I placed them on a plate with vegetables. We are in the habit of serving our plates in the kitchen then sitting down to eat,therefore, I didn't even think about it.


Also the picture in step 4 is after I turned the pork chop over to brown the other side. There is no picture showing the pork chops in the pan after draining all the oil and adding the water.

They are good to make ahead and freeze. Heat in the microwave when needed.

Thank you. I am on the fodmap diet and need gluten free flour for breading. I miss, once in a while, having some old fashioned comfort food. I will probably use canola or coconut oil for health reasons, though.

Bisquick Gluten free has been a big help for me making shortcakes, waffles, and pancakes. Good to have this handy helper in my adjustment. Healthy does no have to be ho-hum!
