The recipe is tasty; it’s straightforward and a little bland, so it lends itself to a little spicing up.
Mom was always able to prepare a delectable hearty lunch for us and our farmhands. This all-in-one pork chops recipe takes me back to my childhood. —Marshfield, Missouri resident Bernice Morris
All of the pork chops and scalloped potatoes are cooked in the same casserole! This is a fantastic family lunch that will please everyone. This recipe is a huge hit with my entire family. I’d make this every day if it weren’t for them! Give it a try; you’ll enjoy it! You’ll need the following items to make this recipe:
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
6 pork rib or loin chops (3/4 inch thick)
2 tablespoons canola oil
Additional salt and pepper, optional
6 cups thinly sliced peeled potatoes
1 medium onion, sliced
Paprika and minced fresh parsley, optional
In a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside.
In a large skillet, brown the pork chops on both sides in oil; sprinkle with additional salt and pepper if desired.
In a greased 13×9-in. baking dish, layer potatoes and onion. Pour broth mixture over layers. Place pork chops on top.
Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour; uncover and bake 30 minutes longer or until meat and potatoes are tender. If desired, sprinkle with paprika and parsley.
Test Kitchen Tips
A mandoline makes quick work of slicing potatoes and onions.
Rib chops are recommended because they have a slightly higher fat content than leaner loin chops. Even with longer cooking times, they tend to stay juicy and flavorful. Bonus: They’re usually less expensive!
