For gravy, mix 4 tablespoons of cornstarch or twice as much flour in 1 cup of cold water. Move the chops to a plate and pour the liquid in a pan over medium-high heat and bring to a light boil. Slowly pour in the thickening liquid while stirring vigorously until starting to thicken. At that point, stop adding the thickener and continue to stir and simmer for a few minutes until gravy is done. Add salt and pepper to taste.
