Show us your life- Dinner Recipes!

This week on Kelly's Show Us How You Live, she is featuring favorite dinner recipes. You know I love sharing and getting new recipe ideas, so i have to join in! Mr.Pate's absolute favorite dinner here is chicken cordon bleu, but since I dont have it typed into the computer yet you wont be getting that one. So our second favorite recipe is Brown Gravy Pork Chops. These are the most tender, juicy, yummy things ever. I used to not even like pork chops at all, but these things changed my mind! Enjoy or as Julia would say Bon Appetit (i finished the book last night! yay! a post on that later)!

Brown Gravy Pork Chops
3 packets of Brown Gravy mix
4 thick pork chops (w/ or w/o bone)

1. Make the gravy according to directions on packet then pour into crock pot
2. Brown the pork chops in a skillet, until they are no longer pink. (really it is like 'whitening' the pork chops)
3. Place pork chops into the gravy
4. Cook on low 8 hours (or high for 6) then enjoy!

  1. i didn't know that justin loves chicken cordon bleu--that is patrick's favorite meal ever! i make it at least once a week. but i make it oh-so-unhealthy...i dip the chicken in butter rather than egg for the crumb coating, and then i dip two more pieces of the swiss cheese in butter and rolled in the cracker crumb/parmesean mixture and stick those under the chicken breast to bake. and of course, this is a meal that i make for him when making something else for myself
