4 bone-in center-cut pork chops (1 inch thick, ½ pound each)
Salt and black pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 ½ cup chicken broth or water
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
Lightly sprinkle the chops on both sides with salt and black pepper, sprinkler with the garlic powder. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook, without moving, until a dark golden crust forms on the bottom of each, 5 to 6 minutes. Flip the chops and cook 5 minutes more. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate to drain.
Add the butter in the skillet and melt. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Go ahead and reduce the heat if the onions start to brown too quickly. Sprinkle the flour over the onions and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the milk, then the broth or water. Simmer the mixture until thickened, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the tomatoes, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops and serve up to a hungry family.
