Pork Chops with Country Gravy and Mashed Potatoes

I wanted to try something a little different with the pork chops I had found on sale.  This fit the bill.  While I think Abe and Jimi were a bit apprehensive in trying something called "country gravy", they both liked it.  It was SO easy to make.

I served it with homemade mashed potatoes, corn and green salad.

I got this from Cookinglight.com.

Pork Chops with Country Gravy and Mashed Potatoes
Serves 4

3/4  teaspoon  salt, divided
4  (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1 inch thick)
1  teaspoon  butter
1 1/3  cups  1% low-fat milk
3  tablespoons  all-purpose flour
1/4  teaspoon  poultry seasoning (or steak seasoning for an extra kick)
1/4  teaspoon  black pepper

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon salt evenly over both sides of pork. Add 1 teaspoon butter to pan, stirring until butter is melted. Add the pork to pan, and cook pork for 3 minutes on each side. Remove pork from pan, and keep warm.
Combine low-fat milk and flour, stirring with a whisk. Add the milk mixture to pan, stirring with a whisk. Stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, poultry seasoning, and black pepper. Return pork to pan. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer for 7 minutes or until gravy is thick and pork is done.

Serve with either homemade or store-bought mashed potatoes.
