Baked Pork Chops// Got Milk?

baked pork chops with mashed potatoes and milk

Today I am partnering with Got Milk? to share this perfect pairing. I grew up in a milk-drinking house. We would always have milk for breakfast, then again at school and later for snacks and sometimes dinner. Still today I cannot eat pancakes or oatmeal with a ice cold cup of milk. One just does not go without the other. My mom was/is a big fan of healthy, natural foods. Foods that will fill up those belly’s (not with empty calories) and provide plenty of vitamins to bodies. So of course milk was always in our diet. Now that I have a bunch of skinny, always hungry children and I do the same. We keep our fridge stocked full of milk. Anytime the kids want milk they are allowed to have it! Only milk and water have that privilege in our house ;)

As I was finishing up taking a pictures of this meal my 4 year old plopped down and started scarfing down the potatoes and gulped down a whole cup of milk. I had to laugh. Milk, these pork chops (and This BOY) were made for each other! this boy and #foodlovesmilk

To start the pork chops, I like to buy the bone-in, thick chops. They are going bake long and slow so they are nice and pull-apart tender. Bread them, fry them, and stick them in the oven for a good hour.

After an hour you will whip up the gravy, then bake for another half an hour in the gravy.

Here is a note about the gravy… you gotta use the cooking white wine. It makes a big flavor difference. I’m ┬ánot an alcohol drinker at all but I do occasionally cook with it- especially with sauces. It adds a third dimension, a flavor that isn’t matched by any other ingredients. and the alcohol cooks out. So, if you are unfamiliar with wines check out the ‘cooking wine’ by the vinegars at your store. Thats what I use.

We serve this meal with ┬áMilk! mashed potatoes smothered in the gravy and sides of veggies. It’s great dish to make for company! Its hard to mess up, tastes amazing, and you can pull it out of the oven with your meat and gravy already prepared. You’ll impress them all with your mad skills.
