Smothered Pork Chops

The Menu:
Smothered Pork Chops

The Original Recipe:
I found this posted by Dawn on Babycenter. Yum! I don't believe I changed anything. I happened to have a can of msg free mushroom soup, so I used it. It turned out great! I used white potatoes diced small.

Smothered Pork Chops

4-6 center cut chops





1 can cream of mushroom

1 can milk

1 med onion chopped

2-3 med potatoes diced small optional

Season the chops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then dredge in flour to coat. Sear them in hot oil just until browned, they don't need to be cooked thru. Then transfer to baking dish. Add chopped onion to pan drippings and saute for a few minutes until they start to change colors. Add milk, soup, and season liberally with seasonings. Stir will on low heat until its all combined well and starting to bubble. Add diced potatoes to chops if you want, then pour soup mixture over chops. Top with cheese if you like, if not its fine too. Then cover with foil and bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and sauce is bubbly. Makes a WONDERFUL gravy. YUMMY!
* A tip I have learned is to poke your potaotes with a fork and microwave for about 3 minutes, let cool while you fry up your porkchops. Then slice them into cubes over your porkchops and pour the gravey over them, cover and bake. The potatoes will get done a lot faster and save your meat from becoming tough.
