Ex-Mother in Law's Pork Chops With Cream of Mushroom

This was the one good memory I have of my first marriage- going to my ex-mother-in-law's and smelling this cooking! Of course, I begged for her recipe and have been making it regularly ever since. Her son was not a keeper for me, but her pork chops sure were! This recipe may be halved by using 4 pork chops, one can of soup, and two tablespoons of butter with the Lawry's seasoning.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 -8 pork loin chops
  • 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup (buy the NAME brand, creamier-cheaper soups stay lumpy)
  • Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • lawry seasoned pepper
  • 14 cup butter


  1. In skillet with melted butter,sprinkle both sides of pork chops with seasoned salt and seasoned pepper to taste and brown.
  2. Put into 9 X 13 inch glass casserole and spoon mushroom soup (do not dilute!) and smear all over pork chops.
  3. Cover and seal tightly with heavy aluminum foil and put into pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
  4. Remove foil last few minutes.
  5. Serve over rice or noodles.
  6. Yummmmm!

I've been making a version of this for years. I cube the chops before browning. Then pour the soup over the top of the cubed chops, stir until the soup is creamy, then put a lid on the skillet and simmer for an hour, stirring occasionally. I serve mine with either egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Very tasty, simple recipe. As an addition, I've added a sqirt or two of spicy brown mustard to the soup, as well as a couple shakes of crushed rosemary. Givest it a little something extra flavorwise.

I wish I could give these chops 10 stars! They were fork tender, & the gravy is sublime!! I did tweek a bit- used Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic soup, & stirred in some milk & a dab of sour cream. I briefly sauteed some Vidalia onions & placed them over the chops before adding the soup. Yummy with rice! This is a keeper at my house!

I completely skipped the browning part of the recipe as my pork chops were really thin. Placed 4 in a glass casserole dish and added 1 can of cream of mushroom soup with the rest of the ingredients. Cooked this in a 375 degree oven for about 45 minutes. DH LOVED it. Thanks!
