      I have pork chops set out for dinner tonight. Anyone have a relatively easy recipe I can use?  If I serve them breaded and fried one more time I’m gonna be fired as chief cook and bottle washer.  HEY wait...

        • A quick and easy method I used (when I was allowed pork chops. Damn triglycerides, anyway. Who needs ‘em??) was to smother them in cream of mushroom soup and bake until bubbly. And fully-cooked, of course.

          Good with green beans and rice, with little prep and clean up.

           med. onion-peeled and sliced
          1 med green pepper, cored,seeded and sliced
          1 lemon sliced and seeded

          Combine sugar, salt and pepper, rub mixture onto both sides of the pork chops. Coat chops well with flour. Fry in 1/4 inch of hot bacon drippings in a large heavy skillet unto brown on both sides, remove from skillet and set aside. Add onion and  green pepper,saute’ just until tender. Return chops to skillet. Add lemon slices and water to come 1/2 inch up sides of pan. Cover and  simmer over low heat 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until very tender, adding additional water.

          They will fall off the bone and melt in your mouth!

        • Im not a great fan of Pork Chops but here are two ways I cook them.

          Stuffed Pork Chops

          You can use stove top or make your own dressing and slice pork chops in center stuff them and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

          My stuffing recipe.. bake one pan of cornbread (set aside), cut up one onion chopped and celery chopped saute it in butter or use low fat substitute, until clear.  crumble in stuffing and add salt and pepper and you can add sage if you like.  put stuffing in each pork chop, in a pan, spray with pam and bake for about 1 hour at 350.  I serve with Cranberry sause and good sides are greenbeans or corn.

            Hint if too dry add chicken broth to dressing and you can pour remainder on or around pork chops while baking.

          Hawaiian Pork Chops

          Cut up one onion chopped, one bell pepper chopped, 1 can of chopped pineapple or whole or crushed which ever texture you like, I like the chopped.

          place pork chops in a pan sprayed pan, and arrange them salt and pepper them then put the onions, peppers and the pineapple undrained right on top.  

          Optional you can add brown sugar to this by mixing 1 cup of brown sugar in 1 cup of water and pouring over it and add cherries.  I dont like the extra sugar so I just stop at the pineapples.

          Bake one hour at 350 degrees

          This is good served with rice.


          Put them on the bbq pit or grill.. thats my last way to cook them.

        • I will brown them in a pan, then I cover them in a packet of dry pork gravy mix mixed with apple juice instead of water, and let them simmer.

        • I just made pork chops for dinner last night.  My favorite way to make them is to marinade them in KC Masterpiece Steakhouse marinade, then cook on the bbq.  It was raining last night so I put them in a cooking bag after marinading them & baked them for 35 minutes.  Yum.....leftovers for lunch today :)

        • Soulful40, My dads family first immigrated to New Orleans from Italy so most of my cooking is Creole and Italian.

          Chicken St. Charles :

          8 strips of chicken breast
          1 stick of butter or equivalent substitute
          1 chopped onion
          1 chopped bell pepper
          1 can of cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken (if you dont have add a half cup of cream or milk or even condensed milk)
          1 tbspoon of lemon juice, but if you dont have it dont worry.
          1/2 cup of sliced black olives or you can add capers (I add a little more like 3/4 cup
          2 tbspoons of flour to thicken
          1 can of chicken broth or water, what ever you like
          1 tblspoon of Sweet basil
          Garlic Salt
          Tony Cacheres seasoning or substitute Cayene pepper.

          Season your Chicken and brown it in a large high sided pan on both sides in butter.  After seared add onions, bell peppers, and if dry a bit more butter or olive oil if you wish.  In a glass mix about a half of cup of water with flour and mix together with no lumps leave to the side.
          Add rest of indredients to dish season to taste, and cook on medium stirring occasionally until chicken is done and tender fur mixture to thicken and cook a bit longer about 30 minutes to 45 min.  Total dish  Hint careful with Ceyenne.

          This is good with Uncle Bens Long Grain Rice, or you can make egg noodles to serve it with.

        • I’m a day late—but made pork chops last week this way and they were really good:

          salt and pepper the pork chops...
          Sear them on both sides in a bit of olive oil in a frying pan...
          Slice a small onion, very thin...
          Place on top of pork chops....
          Pour one can of beer over it all...
          Cover and let it simmer 25-30 minutes, or until most of the beer disappears....

          They were GREAT!!!

        • nycmom, this is one of my favorite pork chop dishes.
          It may not be a “quick” recipe, but it is quite delish!

          Pork Chop Pasta Dinner  

          2 cups corkscrew macaroni or elbow macaroni
          6 pork chops, cut 1/2-inch thick (seasoned w/salt & pepper)
          2 tablespoons cooking oil
          1-(15 ounce) can tomato sauce
          1/4 cup finely chopped onion
          1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
          1/2 teaspoon dried, crushed basil
          1/4 teaspoon salt
          1/4 teaspoon sugar
          1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
          1/4 teaspoon dried, crushed oregano
          Dash black pepper
          1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided  

          *See note below  

          Cook macaroni according to package directions; drain.  

          Lightly spray the inside of a 13×9x2-inch baking pan,
          with a cooking spray. Add macaroni to the baking pan.  

          In a skillet, brown the seasoned chops in hot cooking oil.
          Drain off any excess fat.
          Arrange chops over the macaroni in baking pan.  

          Combine tomato sauce, onion, Worcestershire Sauce,
          basil, salt, sugar, garlic powder, oregano and pepper.
          Pour sauce over chops and macaroni.  

          Sprinkle 1 tsp. grated parmesan cheese, over each chop.  

          Cover, and bake in a 350 degree oven, for 45 minutes.  

          Serve with additional parmesan cheese, if desired.  

          Serves 6.  

          *Note: For this recipe, I ususally prepare a batch and a half of the sauce. I also pour half of the tomato sauce mixture over the macaroni, and the rest of the sauce over the chops, before baking. I also top each chop with more of the Parmesan Cheese. One other thing I should mention, I have used 3/4-inch pork chops when preparing this recipe.
