Pork Chops - recipe needed

Hello all!  I cook lots of chicken and ground meat and pretty well have that down, but tonight the husband asked for pork chops.  I have cooked them maybe 5 times in the 18 years we have been married.  And that was with Shake and Bake...>>>>horrors, I know<<<<  Any good, simple recipes you guys have so I can feed the family pork chops that are edible?  Thanks!  smarty

Re: Pork Chops - recipe needed

This is really simple and we all like it here.

Fry pork chops in just a little bit of butter.

When pork chops are done, (I think it is 5 minutes on each side)

Take Cream of mushroom soup and one cup milk, mix that in. Simmer for about 20 minutes.

I usually serve it with Mashed potatoes and some other veggie. I love asparagus with pork chops.

The cream of mushroom soup becomes the gravy for the meat and the potatoes.

Oh, and if you have it on hand, minced garlic, onion and chives are really good when you add those into the frying pan with the pork chops while they are cooking

Re: Pork Chops - recipe needed

I grew up eating pork chops and spaghetti:
Salt & pepper pork chops.  Fry in pan with sliced onions.  Meanwhile cook pasta and your favorite sauce.  Im my case I just like to use the canned diced tomatoes and add italian seasonings.  Yummy!   joy

This usually turns out well....

Smoky Pork Chops With Cabbage And Apples Ingredients

5 slices smoked bacon  3 cloves garlic finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil  2 large carrots cut into thin slices
4 bone-in pork chops thick 1 medium head green cabbage shredded (about 10 cups)
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper  3 small bay leaves 
1 1/2 teaspoons salt  1/2 cup apple cider or dry French vermouth 
Flour for dredging 2 large apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced 
1 large onion thinly sliced

Instructions for Smoky Pork Chops With Cabbage And Apples
In a large skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until browned and crisp. Pour out all but 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings and add olive oil to skillet. Set skillet aside. Save bacon.

Season the pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon
salt; dredge pork chops in flour. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook on both sides until browned, about 8 minutes.

Remove chops from skillet and set aside.

Add onion and garlic to skillet. Cook, stirring until onions soften,
about 3 minutes. Add carrots, cabbage, bay leaves, cider, apples, remaining 1 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Stir well to combine, cover and bring to a boil. Uncover pan and add pork chops on top of cabbage mixture. Recover and return to boil.

Reduce heat to medium and cook until chops are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Chop reserved bacon coarsely and sprinkle over pork and cabbage. Before serving, remove the bay leaves.

Re: Pork Chops - recipe needed

If you want them to stay REALLY moist, put them in a brine, either the night before or morning of dinner...dissolve 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tbsp salt into 2 qts. hot water, when cool...drop in pork chops and soak! Then cook them to your liking...baked, fried, bbq etc...

Re: Pork Chops - recipe needed

If you want some really tasty pork chops, do your pork chops a big favor and get yourself a bottle of McCormicks Caribbean Jerk Seasoning.  Sprinkle it liberally on the chops then grill, bake or pan fry them.  They are especially good when grilled either over gas or charcoal.  You won't regret it.
I might add that it works real good on a pork roast as well.

Re: Pork Chops - recipe needed

I sprinkle my pork chops with coriander , a garlic pepper spice mix and pan fry in little oil.  The coriander makes the recipe.  The kids were actually fighting over the last chop last week when I made these
