I realized the other day that my children had probably only ever eaten a pork chop at their grandmas house. I grew up eating pork chops, but for some reason I never make them at home.  I decided to bring back some childhood memories and make my own version of a German dish my mom use to make.  The kids loved them and I truly had forgotten how quickly a great dinner could be thrown together with pork,  no marinating, nothing too fussy, just simple yummy white meat in minutes! Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Mix together flour, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, salt and pepper in a shallow platter. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and then dredge them in the seasoned flour making sure to cover completely and shake off any excess.
  2. Heat a large saute pan over medium heat and coat with olive oil. When the oil is hot, but not smoking, lay the pork chops in the pan and fry to 3-5 minutes each side until golden brown. Remove the pork chops from the pan and add 2 tbsp of the left over flour mixture to the pan dripping, stir then pour in the chicken broth. Let the mixture cook down for a few minutes making sure to scrape up the brown bits and continually stir. In a small dish mix the lemon juice and cornstarch to make a paste and add to the broth. mix well and then add the heavy cream to make a creamy gravy. Return the pork chops to the pan spooning the sauce over them and continue to simmer for an additional 5 minutes or until the pork is cooked through. Garnish with chopped parsley or chives and serve over egg noodles or spaeztle (recipe coming later this week).
