Cajun Smothered Pork Chops

Here in South Louisiana, we "smother" just about everything. No, we don't put a blanket or something over our food to "smother" it! We just keep the cover of the pot almost all the way on. It's best cooked in a heavy, seasoned cast iron dutch oven, which is a must have, in my opinion. The meat is cooked in a natural gravy. I personally like my food on the spicy side. It's "fall off the bone" tender! So, put a pot of rice on! :)
