Gravies are easy to make. Especially since there are so many ready made gravy packets. Some people like onion gravy, mushroom gravy, brown gravy.

Of course home made gravies are always better. But not everybody knows how to make them.

Gravy packets are also good to help out when your own homemade gravy is lacking something or just to help enhance the flavor into your already made gravy.

Mushrooms

Smothered Pork in Mushroom Gravy

If you like mushrooms. Add some sliced, fresh mushrooms while the gravy simmers slowly. You can omit the pearl onions and replace them with the mushrooms. Or just keep both of them for a burst of flavor.

Slice and Saute the mushrooms separately in a small pan with butter, salt and garlic. Pour it in the pan with the pork chops and simmering gravy.

Add some sides, make a plate

Vegetables, crusty bread and a creamy noodle dish makes this smothered pork dish complete!

It's quick, easy, not much mess to clean and especially nice when served on paper plates for eat and go.

      Simple and tasty. Package gravies do come in handy in a pinch when you need to get something on the table quick without a lot of fuss.
