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."

    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'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 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!

    This is the best Mushroom Soup/Pork Chop recipe I have ever made! Thank You for posting this! I made it tonight with mashed potatoes, and lima beans, and everybody loved it! I had 3 pork steaks, so I cut them in half and made 6 chops out of them. The only thing I did different was I added a packet of dry onion soup mix, and a few splashes of milk to the Mushroom soup with Garlic that I had on hand, and I sliced an onion and laid the slices on the chops before I poured on my soup mixture. I think that browning the pork in butter is what really set it off though! Lots of flavor! I am definitely adding this to my regular recipe rotation.

    This is delicious! And incredibly easy to make. I didn't change a thing.

    My husband and son are both picky eaters and they loved this! I did change a few things such as adding green beans into the pork chop/mushroom dish during the last 15 min of baking and used mashed potatoes instead of noodles or rice.

    I made this for my family and EVERYONE enjoyed. The little ones and the adults. But instead of adding seasoning salt I used garlic salt and pepper. I made about 10 porkchops and put then inot a large pan (for when I put it in the oven). I used 3 cans of cream of mushroom (large ones,) and prett much made the soup and chops into a soup. And sauteed half an onion and placed them over the soup. When they were done, I used the remaining mushroom soup as gravy for the mashed potatoes I made. Everything came out delicious!

    This is a great recipe.. I halved it, using 3 pork loins and one can of reduced-sodium mushroom soup. Unfortunately, I way overseasoned the loins with the seasoned salt, but it wasn't too bad too eat, in fact it was delicious! I served over egg noodles and a side of green beans. I will definately make this again, being more careful with my seasoning. I also may try it as a skillet instead of heating the oven and add mushrooms also.

    Simple, tasty and one I will use again. I used olive oil instead of butter to save calories and I cut the recipe in half for the two of us. Thanks for the recipe. Carole in Orlando

    I had 2 leftover pork chops ad this fit the bill! Very good and easy to put together. I used a little oil instead of butter,by mistake, and I used a can of Campbell's cream of chicken and mushroom soup. I also added a whole jar of whole mushrooms because I love them. This was a great recipe. Thanks!
