These pork chops are so tender and delicious, they just melt in your mouth. Serve with cooked rice or noodles so you can mop up every last drop of the thick, rich gravy. Note* The cook time on this recipe is for the thick boneless pork chops. If you use a regular thickness pork chop with bone-in, reduce your cook time.

I altered this to make a lighter version by adding only 1 cup light sour cream. I thought the sauce tasted great, maybe it was less thick than the orginal version? We eat late at my house so I like to have minimal prep time so I browned the pork chops and made the sauce in the morning and then poured the sauce on and baked at supper time. I also used a boneless chicken breast that I had in the fridge. It was delicious. All in all I thought this was a good tasting comfort food. Great with mashed potatos.
Followed the recipe exactly as given with bone-in pork chops. Produced an excellent rich sauce which was perfect over the rice but we felt the sauce overpowered the taste of the pork slightly. This is a very nice dish to make and is different than same old pork chops.
This was a big success in our house. We made it exactly as written using boneless center cut pork chops. The flavor was great, especially over rice. Just be careful to temper the sour cream. My husband curdled it by adding it in over the heat. Amateur.
