Smothered pork is a traditional Southern recipe in which chops are cooked with gravy and onions. You can use various cuts, but rich pork shoulder steaks, each about 1 inch thick and 6 ounces, will give you the most flavorful dish. Brown the steaks, saute onions with a generous amount of bell peppers, and make a simple pan gravy. Smother the steaks with the onion-pepper mixture and finish them in the oven before serving over rice.
