Questions & Replies

  1. When I’m simmering the porkchops should I cover them?


  1. I thought this was great!! I seasoned the pork chops with some crushed black peppercorns for a bit more oomph since I love pepper! It was so easy to make, will definitely make this again
  2. The best sort of recipe. Comfort food quick and easy to make. I did add to the recipe a bit. After browning the pork chops, I put a little bit of fresh white onion, a couple of fresh mushrooms, and a chopped up celery stick that I needed to use up. The additions were nice, and the meal received rave reviews from my wife.
  3. I love this method of cooking pork chops! The key step is to make sure to get all of the goodies on the bottom like you said. I used homemade cream of mushroom soup to try to make it a bit healthier. Great recipe!
  4. My mom made this as I was growing up. Less the season salt and garlic; salt, pepper and bottom of pan pork chop scrapping are enough for flavor. Mom always paired it with mashed potatoes and green beans. DELICIOUS! Thanks for your take on an old comfort food recipe. It was also DELICIOUS!
  5. Another great recipe. You're one of the best.


I am 30 years old and I love to cook for my family of four.... I am married with two wonderful children.... That is them in the picture above.... It's a little old though.... Wesley will be five in June and Katelyn will be eight in June.... I'm always looking for new things to cook and try out on all of my family.... I'm also a teacher to 17 wonderful 3 yr. olds.... I'm always looking for quick, easy, and wonderful tasting food to fix that my whole family will enjoy... My husband is a picky meat and potatoes man.... SO, any time I fix something new that he likes, is amazing.... Wesley is like his daddy and loves to eat meat and potatoes, but he's also real good about trying other foods....
