I took several recipes that I liked - but they weren't quite right, so this is the end result. This has NO soup, NO heavy breading, NO cheese, NO tomatoes, NO bacon and NO cream. It uses a pork loin, which I love to buy vs. individual pork chops, because I can cut them any thickness, and also it saves money. I cook part of it, and freeze the rest for a dinner like this. I also use fresh mushrooms, onions, garlic, a base of chicken stock, white wine and sherry for a unique flavor. And of course fresh herbs, thyme, bay leaf and rosemary. Some fresh scallions to garnish, and I prefer to serve mine over mashed "spuds." Mashed potatoes are the perfect comfort food to me; however butter noodles or rice could also be an option. Green beans is what I always make with it, they just seem to go together. It is still very comforting, but I left out the heavy breading and some of the other ingredients which just added additional calories which I didn't need. Give it a try.
