    I just made chops last night!

    In a large casserole dish sprayed with olive oil, I laid three chops in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkled with salt, pepper, & dried basil. Then I spooned over the chops about 1/2 can of French Onion Soup. Covered with foil, baked at 350 for about 30 mins. Check your chops for done-ness, though. Cook 5 mins more if under cooked, and check again.

    If you want to make the below side, move your chops to a plate & cover with foil. Then pour drippings into a separate dish for spooning over your meal if you choose.

    For my side, I cut up a head of cabbage, tossed with fat free Italian dressing, spread out the cabbage in the casserole dish in which I cooked the pork chops. Then roasted the cabbage under the broiler on low, stirring every 5 mins or so until crisp/tender.

    Dinner is served! Can't wait for left overs!

    Well, I have a couple kinds of sauces that I put on pork. The basis of each is fruit jam. Start with a flavor you like. I use apricot or raspberry the most.

    The ratio is about 2/3 jam to 1/3 chipotle tabasco. Another ingredient I use in place of the tabasco is Lawry's Baja Chipotle marinade.

    It takes about 2 tbsp of the mixture to dress each slice of pork.

    So my method, when cooking a whole pork loin, is to put a half of a jar of jam into a microwaveable bowl. Shake a whole glob of chipotle tabasco all over it, and maybe even some crushed red pepper flakes if I'm wanting it to be zesty. Stir it up and zap it till it's hot and bubbly. Spoon it over the slices of pork. Super yummy.

    Smothered pork chops

    Season 4 bone in center chops and brown over med-high heat on both sides
    When browned top with 1sliced onion, rings separated
    Add 11/2 cup broth (I use 2 parts chicken and 1part beef) to the pan and bring to a boil
    Reduce heat and simmer covered 20min. Onions and pork will be tender.
    Remove chops and keep warm.
    Stir 1 tbsp of floor into 1/2 cup plain Greek yogirt. Temper the yogurt by stirring in a small spoonful of hot broth. Repeat unit the yogurt mixture is warm to the touch.
    Stir yogurt into the broth and cook over low heat for 3-5 min or until thick.

    If you enjoy hot spicy food this is pretty good. Fry pork chops in alittle olive oil, toss in some hot peppers (sliced) the ones in a jar that have juices in it, then slice an onion and add also..The flavor is amazing.

    Easiest thing ever:

    Pork chops + sauerkraut + a few chopped apples (optional). Bake, covered, at 350 for 2.5 hours, or put in crock pot on low 8-10 hours or high 4-5 hours. The meat falls right off the bone, and it's very low cal.

    Brown the chops first in oil, or don't.

    Can add pepper, but no salt. Sauerkraut is pretty salty already.

    I like a good dry rub on my pork. It's easy to do them lots of different ways with your favourite spices.

    Have you tried panko? I like dipping the chop in egg white then panko crumbs with parm and baking. Alternatively, I like just grilling them and brushing them with a mustard-maple syrup mixture.

    My 'go to' pork recipe is really easy. As a matter of fact we had it tonight.

    Pork chops in casserole dish, sprinkle about 1/4 packet of Lipton Onion Soup mix, pour a few tablespoons of Fat Free French Dressing over them. Cover dish and bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until meat is cooked through.

    Try marinade: Soy sauce diluted with water, sesame oil, garlic, and black pepper. I usually do 1/4 cup soy, almost 1/4 water, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Mix together and marinate pork chops all day the broil chops to desired doneness.
