Holly's Note:
This recipe came from Simply Delicious Amish Cooking and received rave reviews from my family.  I didn't get a photo though.  As far as the gravy goes, the original recipe says, "Now, take a little taste with a spoon.  If it's not quite perfect, add more salt and pepper.  That's all the spices needed for this pork chop dinner..."  Well, in addition to some pepper, I seasoned the chops with a family all-purpose seasoning and used that in the gravy.
