SMOTHERED CHOPS / OVEN OR CROCK POT




I just love anything made with onion…this recipe is no exception…the more the merrier. The creamy, flavorful sauce, could be eaten over mashed potatoes, noodles or rice…my kids wanted noodles. I usually prefer the bone in, center cut chops with this recipe, but all I had was boneless. This recipe can also be made in the crockpot…I didn’t have time for that, so I baked it in the oven…

Enjoy!




Ingredients

6 bone in center cut chops, or boneless…i think the bone in chops tend to be more tender unless done in the crockpot
2 – 3 Tbsp oil for browning chops
salt and pepper to season pork
onion powder for seasoning pork
1 large onion, sliced
1 can(s) (14 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
1 can(s) (14 ounces) cream of chicken soup
1 can(s) ( 10 ounces) cream of onion soup
1/2 C milk
1/4 C Worcestershire sauce
1/2 small can, french fried onions
prepared parsley buttered noodles, mashed potatoes or rice to serve with

  1. Season chops.
  2. Brown chops over medium heat in oil for approximately 5 minutes each side.
  3. In the same skillet, caramelize onions.
  4. Place browned chops in the casserole dish. ( or crock pot )Mix soups, onion, milk and Worcestershire sauce in medium bowl.
  5. Pour mixture over chops; sprinkle with french fried onions and bake for at least 60 minutes or until chops are tender in a 350 degree oven. ( In crock Pot – 3 hrs high or 6 -7 hrs on low ).

  7. Serve over buttered, parsley egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice.
