    Sharlene~W's Note:

    Saw Emeril Lagasse prepare this on FoodTV and I could practically smell it and taste it through the screen. It was as fabulous as I thought it was going to be. I think you could use the same basic sauce for chicken and shrimp dishes as well. The sauce is to die for! Adapted from recipe in "New New Orleans Cooking" by Emeril Lagasse and Jessie Tirsch.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 thinly cut pork chops (about 3 pounds cut about 1/2-inch thick)

    For seasoning mix

    For sauce


    1. 1
      Mix ingredients for seasoning mix together in a small bowl and sprinkle generously on both sides of pork chops.
    2. 2
      (Save the extra seasoning mix to add to the sauce later if you think it needs more seasoning--I tossed it out, and then wished I had a little bit more to make it a little spicier).
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Add the pork chops, a few at a time and cook them until they are lightly browned on both sides (about 2 minutes per side).
    5. 5
      Remove the pork chops to a platter and set aside.
    6. 6
      Reduce the heat to medium.
    7. 7
      Add the flour and stir constantly until the roux is the color of peanut butter, about 4 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add the onions, salt, and pepper.
    9. 9
      Cook, stirring, until the onions are slightly soft, about 5 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add the garlic, bay leaves, chicken broth and water.
    11. 11
      Bring to a boil.
    12. 12
      Return the pork chops to the pot.
    13. 13
      Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
    14. 14
      Add the smoked sausage and the potatoes.
    15. 15
      Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
    16. 16
      Serve with either steamed white rice or rice pilaf.

      I had a hard time with the seasonings. Never having made this receipe before I found it confusing that the oil was added with the seasoning. I poured the oil on the seasoning, since it was in with the seasoning. I then read the directions further, and found this a mistake. However I swiped the pork chops in this. Added a little more oil and finished as directed and got rave reviews from hubby and granddaughter. When a ten year old says "This is the best home cooked pork chop I ever had", you know you have a hit. Thanks for posting, will use over an over again.

      These were great. The only change I made was to leave out the onions, since we don't like them...and I did cook them slightly differently. I realized I wouldn't have time to finish them on the stovetop and eat before church, so after the sauce was made, I added the potatoes and sausage back early and put it all in the oven at 200 degrees and cooked for about 2 hours. The sauce was terrific--caught my husband pouring it off the plate into his mouth! I was a little bit more decorous. I mopped mine up with a piece of bread :D Definitely a keeper!

      At first glance this looks like a complicated recipe - please don't let that chase you away. It's very quickly put together and the flavor is just unbelievable. We have a new favorite way to prepare pork chops! Thanks for posting this fab recipe on Zaar :)
