In this classic Italian dish, pork chops are cooked in milk until tender and coated in a yummy caramelized milk sauce.

With a long slow simmer, the milk and flour mixture reduces down to a caramelized sauce that's delicious with the tender pork chops.


4 (1-inch) thick pork loin chops
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups 2% low-fat milk
2 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons vegetable oil


  1. Trim all fat from pork chops.
  2. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chops; shake to coat chops with the seasoned flour mixture. Remove chops from bag; reserve the remaining flour mixture. Place the reserved flour mixture in a small bowl. Gradually add 1/2 cup of the milk. Melt butter in a large skillet with the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add pork chops; cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Add milk mixture to the skillet; cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Turn the chops over. Add remaining 1 cup milk; cover and cook 30 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.
  4. Uncover skillet and cook the chops 15 minutes longer, or until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup.
