Onion Rings and Smothered Pork Chops

We have a hit and a miss here for dinner tonight.

I wanted a breaded smothered in gravy pork chop.
I tried this recipe
It was not successful. The cooking time was also WAY under for the chops I bought. I ended up sticking it in the oven to finish cooking
Adding buttermilk to the thickened gravy just made it watery again. I don't understand the reasoning behind that step. I wasn't impressed with the end result with the gravy.

For onion rings I followed this recipes ingredient list and technique.
I seasoned the flour with the same seasonings except I only have black pepper instead of white at home.
My husband did the dipping method, flour mix, then buttermilk, then back in the flour.
He heated vegetable oil in our electric wok and fried away.
I ground some sea salt on top while they were hot
They were great! Very flaky.

sorry your recipe didn't turn out. I made this recipe for smothered pork chops the other day...delicious! You can make cream of mush from scratch if you don't like the canned stuff:
