When you need to get dinner on the table, and don't have time to spare, get out your skillet and try these scrumptious pork chops that go from fridge to table in just 35 minutes.

What You'll Need

1 3/4 cups Swanson® Beef Broth or Swanson® Beef Stock
2 tablespoons cornstarch
6 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced

How to Make It

  • 1

    Stir the broth and cornstarch in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.  Season the pork, if desired.

  • 2

    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the pork and cook for 5 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the pork from the skillet.

  • 3

    Heat the remaining oil in the skillet.  Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring often.

  • 4

    Stir the broth mixture in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens. Return the pork to the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.


  • Recipe Twist: for Dijon-Rosemary Smothered Pork Chops, stir 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard into the broth mixture in Step 1.  Stir 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves into the thickened broth mixture in Step 4.
