Tennessee Hillbilly Chops

Recipe by Alby Thorp

I remember my Mom making this when I was young. I'd come home from school, and the great smell of this dish filled the house and made my mouth water. I love it as it is a very simple dish which you can put on the stove and go on about your other household duties. You can cut the chops with a fork!

I make this recipe exactly the same way. If using thick chops I will simmer for about 1 or 1 1/2 hours. The recipe may be cooked longer if you need to. You are right about the wonderful aroma, and the great taste. Sometimes I add a little more little caraway seed while cooking. Thanks for sharing your Mom's recipe.
