Smothered Pork Chops

"These have a savory sauce that's a nice change of pace. The gravy is tasty enough to eat on its own with just a hunk of good bread."

    I used fresh mushrooms that I cooked in the microwave to obtain the juice of the mushrooms. It's so easy to do. The pork chops turned out very tender and full of flavor with the sauce. Great recipe. Thanks xtine :) made for Alphabet tag game

    We loved this recipe. I've tried it many different ways. I've browned pork lion chops just poured everything in crockpot with them on Low for 8hrs or 4hrs on High. Instead of red wine, I used cranberry juice. One time I even put in a whole pork lion roast in crockpot. We made hot pork sandwiches and put the gravy over it. everybody loved it and it was quick and easy for me.

    I really liked this, the wine gave it such a rich taste. I cooked mine in the crockpot on High for 4 hours and they came out perfect. Served the broth with a baked potato. Made for *PAC Fall 2007* game

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>I'm originally from Atlanta, GA, but I now live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, cat, and dog. I'm a film and video editor, but cooking is my main hobby - if you can call something you do multiple times a day a hobby. <br />I enjoy all types of food, from molecular gastronomy to 70's suburban Mom type stuff. While I like to make recipes from cookbooks by true chefs, I don't turn my nose up at Campbell's Cream of Mushroom - I'm not a food snob. <br /> I love foods from all nations/cultures, and I am fortunate enough to live in NYC so I can go to restaurants which serve food from pretty much anywhere on the globe. Because of this most of my recipes tend to be in the Western European/American food tradition - I find it easier to pay the experts for more complicated delicacies such as Dosai, Pho &amp; Injera. I really enjoy having so many great food resources available to me here in NYC. One of my favorite stores is Kalustyan's http://www.kalustyans.com/ <br />they have every spice, bean, &amp; grain in the world. If there's something you can't find, look on their website. I bet they'll have it and they can ship it to you! <br />Many of my recipes are Southern, because that's the food I grew up on. I hope the recipes I have posted here will be useful to folks out in the 'zaar universe! <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i38.photobucket.com/albums/e110/flower753/Food/my3chefsnov2008.jpg alt= /></p>
