Buttermilk Recipes

Recommended Posts

I have some buttermilk I need to use before it spoils.  I could make biscuits but I'm up for trying something a little different.  I know we have a number of wonderful cooks here so please give me some ideas for the buttermilk.

Smothered Pork Chops


·        1 cup all-purpose flour

·        2 tablespoons onion powder

·        2 tablespoons garlic powder

·        1 teaspoon cayenne

·        1 teaspoon salt

·        ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

·        4 pork chops, ¾ inch thick, bone-in

·        ¼ cup olive oil

·        1 cup chicken broth

·        ½ cup buttermilk


Put the flour in a shallow platter and add the onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper; mix with a fork to distribute evenly.  Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels to remove any moisture and then dredge them in the seasoned flour; shaking off the excess.

Heat a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium heat and coat with the oil.  When the oil is nice and hot, lay the pork chops in the pan in a single layer and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.  Remove the pork chops from the pan and add a little sprinkle of seasoned flour to the pan drippings.  Mix the flour into the fat to dissolve and then pour in the chicken broth.  Let the liquid cook down for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly.  Stir in the buttermilk to make a creamy gravy and return the pork chops to the pan, covering them with the sauce.  Simmer for 5 minutes until the pork is cooked through.  Season with salt and pepper before serving.

Back when I fried chicken (too messy) and made pancakes I'd use it for that (only good with wheat flour and Hubby is allergic to gluten).


Now, I only use it to make Mexican Crema for Mexican Lasagna (rice noodles, of course). As it only used 2T for 16 oz. heavy cream. I chug the rest straight. ;)

How can you tell when buttermilk has gone bad?


That was my thought exactly!:lol:

I love butter and I like milk,

but I do not like buttermilk.

In a recipe buttermilk is okay

By itself, it can just go away.

Ranch dressing for salad is divine,

Pancakes with syrup taste just fine.

Buttermilk biscuits are delicious,

and I think they are very nutritious.

Some others, like doctors,  may disagree 

but that really does not bother me.

Buttermilk makes recipes delectable. 

By itself, I find it detestable. 

I do not like buttermilk, it tastes funny.

I would not drink it, not even for money.

If you like buttermilk, drink and enjoy.

I’ll not stop you or be a killjoy.

But if forced upon me I will not think,

I’ll react very forcefully and will not drink.

Buttermilk is unique and has it’s place,  

in many recipes that I like to embrace.

So use buttermilk and use it with glee

To make tasty treats and share them with me. :)

Thanks for the recipes and suggestions.  I appreciate it.  Love the poem, Pat!!


I have to get some ingredients before I can do anything.  I won't be able to make a trip to the store until tomorrow after work.  I'm thinking about making a slowcooker dish and making biscuits to go with it.  I also like the pork chop idea.  I'll run these by Uno and see what he thinks. 


Thanks again. :wub::wub::wub::wub:

If you live in a desert how do you know if you're having a drought? And how can you tell if buttermilk is spoiled? I thought it came that way.

JHC :blink:


It separates and STINKS!!!  More so than usual.

isn't it bad when it starts to get chunky??:unsure:


Those mental pictures are making me queasy.

I just do tolerate 1%, skim is better to me.

My parents did.  I do not.  But it does make superlative baked goods.

I guess we can all agree that buttermilk has its uses.


As long as we don't have to drink it! :blink:
