Alright guys…have you grabbed that BOGO pork yet?
I know lots of folks think pork is bland and boring. I like to remind them that it can be tasty and delicious…it’s all about HOW you prepare it.
With this recipe, you don’t have to worry about it being dry and tasteless. The mushroom gravy is rich and absolutely delicious and ensures that the pork tastes amazing. What’s even better…it’s fast and super easy. So, this is a great recipe for a busy weeknight.
Just pair with some of the BOGO Birds Eye veggies and some rice or potatoes and you can have dinner on the table in about 15 – 20 minutes!
Notice that you don’t need a ton of ingredients for this one. The biggest cost for me was the pork that was under $5 for the entire package. If you had basic pantry staples, I would estimate that you could put this one together for $10 – $12. That makes my Smothered Pork Chops about $3 per serving.
