These one-pan pork chops are very simple to make.  The easy milk gravy does not even require making a roux!  Serve this 30-minute dinner over rice with a vegetable on the side.

This past weekend I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner, and he said, “Something with gravy.” You can see why I love him. He’s not too picky AND he loves gravy! I remembered that I had this recipe that desperately needed new photos, so I decided to make it again.

If you aren’t impressed with these new photos, well, neither am I really. Since I don’t have a story to go with this recipe, why don’t I just whine about food photography instead?

First of all, meat with gravy sounds delicious and is delicious, but it looks kind of plain and brown. It’s hard to make it look as good as it tastes. Also, I took these photos at night with my photography lights, which sometimes works great and sometimes not so much.

Finally, why did I put this food on a square plate?? I rarely use this plate because I think it looks terrible in pictures every time, but after a few months I think I must be remembering wrong and use it again. I have nothing against squares as a shape, but I think square plates make photos difficult because you are limited on how you can angle the them. I should donate this one so I’m never tempted to use it again!

The thing is, the original photo was so horribly terrible that any new photos would be an improvement. I’m not going to put the old photo in this post because I don’t want you to lose your appetite, but you can click here if you want a good laugh. It just goes to show that we all had to start somewhere! I started The Weary Chef with bad iPhone photos, most of which I have replaced, but this recipe was a winner then and still is! I hope these new (mediocre) pictures will convince you to try it. You won’t be sorry!

Maybe because this is one of my all time ‘happy meals’ I think the photos look just fine. I can tell that meat is moist and oh so tasty. Gravy—-I try to avoid it, but after Thanksgiving all I can think about is gravy. Delish!

I spend a lot of time thinking about gravy any time of year. Thank you, Carol!

My mom used to make a meal almost exactly like this when I was a child. But I haven’t made pork chops in a while. This looks like the ultimate comfort food!

Thanks, Ashley! I feel like I’m getting old because people keep telling me I make things like their mom used to ;) I need to start making more recipes with chia or some other fresh, young ingredient! I’m a 1950’s housewife at heart I guess.

Oh Andy, please don’t ever stop making and posting those old favorites which many of us grew up on. We still enjoy them at times, especially when we’re in dire need of some good old ‘comfort food’.

Thank you so much, Angela! I actually took new photos of this recipe (again!) a couple weeks ago and have been meaning to update it again. I’ll try to get to that this week. I love recipes like this too. We just had burger steaks with gravy for dinner tonight. You can never go wrong with meat and gravy! xo

Your photos certainly made me hungry for this entire meal, and that’s what counts, right? I did click through to the old photo – I just had to – and I have some old photos on my blog that are just as wonderful. ;)

Thank you, Kristine! Yes, I have loads more terrible photos I could show you. But I won’t ;)

You crack me up with photography banter on this post! I agree though, some meals are just plain ‘ol hard to photograph. I think these look good!

I make too many brown foods with gravy because they are always a challenge! They taste too good to stop though ;) Thank you, Melanie!

Oh I am a sucker for pork chops and gravy! This is just good old comfort food! YUM!

Thank you, Annie! This one would be easy to make GF I think since the gravy uses cornstarch. You could just dredge the pork chops in a GF flour. I used spelt flour.
