This recipe is quite delicious and a nice change from the usual pork chop casseroles. Try it, I'm sure you will like it. The recipe came from a very old Purity cookbook.

I was looking for a recipe that I thought kids might really like - and they did. I had to make a couple of ingredient changes, so the original is probably even better. I wasn't sure what catsup was, so I used tomato sauce. I used olive oil, not shortening, to brown the chops, with fresh ginger and garlic added then, as I didn't have powdered garlic or ginger to add to the flour. I only used 2 tablespoons of paprika, as I have the strong Spanish one, and I thought it would overwhelm everything else. The chops tasted excellent, but the sauce was a little thin - maybe because of the tomato sauce I used? Anyway, we really liked this recipe. Thank you Darlene.
