Pork chops are oneof those foods that I either hate or love. I like to have pork chops every now and then to get a different kind of meat in, but sometimes they can just be blah, or too tough, or just not all that great. We’ve tried to find some pork chop recipes that are really good, so that we can look forward to having something different now and then. I think it was Ross that found this recipe a few months back. It is absolutely delicious. He made it last night and made a bunch of changes, and it was even more delicious! Here is the basic recipe:
Basically, take some frozen (but thawed, if that makes sense) hash browns and mix together with cream of celery soup, sour cream, cheddar cheese, french fried onions and some salt and pepper. Brown the pork chops, put on top of the potato mixture in a 9×13 pan, top with more cheese and french fried onions and bake. The pork comes out really tender and flavorful and the potatoes are delicious. Ok, so it’s probably not the healthiest meal in the world, but it is worth it!
We’ve made it with southwestern hashbrowns, which give it a kick and taste really good. Last night Ross was using a little of every cheese we had in the fridge and put a dollop of cream cheese on top of each pork chop before topping with the cheddar cheese. That was reallygood. We also didn’t have any french fried onions, so he caramelized some onions in some balsamic vinegar and included those. It gave it a hint of sweetness, which I wouldn’t have thought belonged, but it tasted good as well.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, and have fun playing with it to meet your liking!
