This is another one of those super simple, easily adaptable recipes. In fact, I can think of three different ways to serve it. All of them would be delish. We chose the simplest serving method – sandwiches.
But you could also make the pork and gravy and serve it as whole pork chops with your favorite sides. Then repurpose the leftovers as sandwiches.
Or you could make open-faced sandwiches with mashed potatoes. Like a Manhattan. I think there are other terms for this type of sandwich, but I can’t think of them right now. Leave a comment if you know of some.
I used 2.5 lbs of boneless pork chops and 1 jar of gravy. If you like it more gravy-ish, just add a second jar. And if you’re serving them as open-faced sandwiches with mashed potatoes, you’ll want the second jar of gravy.
For a side dish, I cooked some farmer’s market veggies in a skillet. It was a quick meal that we really liked.
This really can’t get any easier! I love recipes like this.

This sounds like it would be a winner at our house. Could I do this with a pork roast instead? If so, should I slice it first or leave it as a full roast? Thanks!
Amanda, you can use a pork roast for this. Leave it whole and then shred it when it’s cooked.
How long would need to cook it for a roast instead of the pork chops , I also want to use roast. 🙂
It should cook for about the same amount of time, just go with the longer time.

I made this for dinner tonight. Yum! I used a 1.75 lb. pork loin and it was perfect for the four of us. We ate it like a hot turkey sandwich (that’s what I grew up calling it) with mashed potatoes and corn. We sliced it, but next time I want to try it shredded on buns like you have pictured. Instead of the jarred gravy, I used the powdered mix that I always have on hand from Sam’s. It was the perfect easy meal to come home to after a busy day of work and grocery shopping. Thanks for a great recipe!
I’m glad you liked it. It would make great Manhattans (what we called the sandwiches with mashed potatoes). Thanks for the serving idea!
