We’ve already shared Aunt Alisa’s traditional cream gravy that she calls her “2-2-2 Gravy,” but Nana wanted an alternative.  You can serve them on the exact same dishes, but Nana especially enjoys this creamy garlic sauce/gravy on her brined pork chops.  Let us know how you enjoy it with your family.
