What to Serve with Smothered Pork Chops

To keep this meal hearty and filling, I love to pair my smothered pork chops with a potato or rice of some kind.

Mashed Potato Casserole, Twice-baked potatoes, or sauteéd potatoes are always great. Another good option for a side with this is to make simple sauteéd veggies or try out Feta and Bacon Green Beans!

How to Store Smothered Pork Chops

You should store any leftovers in a sealed food container in the fridge. Leftover pork chops tend to last for up to 3 days. I have found that these can get a bit dry and lose their juicy flavor when reheated, so I suggest eating them all up when they’re fresh, if you can!
