Other than a steak on the grill, I think there's nothing that a man loves more than a hunk of meat smothered in gravy. It doesn't really matter what kind of meat it is, just so gravy is involved. I've included another smothered dish here on my blog, Smothered Pork Chops . Frankly, I find the word "smothered" downright comforting when it comes to food. I know that there's something good underneath all that gravy. Making gravy is a quick, inexpensive way to add a little something extra to your meal. And, if you pair it with rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes, you've got a meal.
I've smothered boneless pork chops, cubed steak, cubed pork steaks, and boneless chicken breasts in gravy. I remember my Mema making patties out of ground beef and cooking them in gravy. It's all good and you can change up the flavor by adding chicken or beef broth. I'll admit that I really don't know how other people make gravy. I didn't learn from anybody. I just practiced and came up with this method. It's simple and I'll show you what I do.
Already looking good!
We're huge rice fans in our house but this would be good over egg noodles or homemade mashed potatoes. It truly is a comforting dish. Whether you use chicken, pork, or beef, I hope you'll give it a try.
