Easy Skillet Pork with Spinach & Onion Gravy. A perfectly delicious and easy weeknight dinner. Everything comes together in one pan. Elegant enough for a special meal too! I served it along with couscous.
I’ve been on a bit of pork kick lately. Its funny how this one came about actually. I had a ton of running around to do earlier in the day and came home to a package of thin sliced pork cutlets in the fridge. Puts on thinking cap, searches pantry and fridge and comes up with this delicious Easy Skillet Pork with Spinach & Onion Gravy!
Funny how sometimes the things that are simple, thrown together and nothing fancy really turn out to be a big hit with the family. This was definitely one of those meals! Wooohoo for this momma! I pounded the thin cutlets a little more simply because I like a thin cutlet. Dredged in a little seasoned flour then cooked in a skillet until golden on both sides.
The rest of the dish comes together easily too! With the pork set aside you add in a bit of butter and olive oil and sauté onions and garlic with rosemary and thyme until softened. Stir in flour, cook for a few minutes then add in a bit of apple cider vinegar and broth. Simmer until slightly thickened. Add in the spinach and the pork, cooking just a few more minutes and dinner is done!
The couscous I served is a simple 5 minute boxed mix and can I tell you, my kids devoured it! Now I know to make more for next time. This is a great meal for any night of the week!
