This is a very homey comforting pork dish. It doesn't take a lot of work or ingredients. I was looking for something that would just taste good and have a wonderful gravy. The onions and garlic add a really nice mellow sweetness to the dish. I used yellow onions which are sweeter than white, but almost any kind of onion would work. I would not use red onions though because the flavor is much too strong. My family loves garlic so I used more, but make it to your tastes. My 2 year old gobbled it up. Left overs are delicious!
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper.
- Brown pork chops over medium-high heat.
- When chops are browned, but not cooked through, place in a 13x9 baking dish.
- In the same skillet you browned the chops saute the sliced onions until caramelized, sprinkling with a little salt to add flavor and bring out the sugars.
- When the onions are starting to get a little color add your garlic cloves.
- When onions and garlic are nicely caramelized pour over pork chops.
- In the same skillet add the can of cream of chicken soup, milk, salt and pepper to taste, and parmesan cheese. Whisk until all the lumps are gone.
- When this reaches a creamy texture (you may need to add a little water if it's too thick) pour over pork chops and onions.
- Bake uncovered for 45 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops.
This was a delicious meal. The pan gravy was great over basmati rice, too. I used a standard yellow onion, and I think it worked well in this dish. Caramelizing the onions was a great addition, because it added a depth of flavor that would have been lost if all I had done was slice the onion and top the pork with them, and then continue cooking. Yep, caramelizing is the way to go! We really enjoyed this dish. Thank you for sharing your recipe MollyLin. Made for "New Kids On The Block" tag game.
