  • 12-Inch Skillet
  • Liquid Measuring Cup
  • Silicone Turner


  • 4 thick boneless pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon koshor salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream or milk
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped


  • Stir garlic powder and chili powder into flour.
