This is an all time favorite dish of ours. To get maximum flavor do not use an expensive cut of pork chop such as center cut. You need to use the "assorted, family pack" bone-in type chop. You also must brown your chops VERY well. Well browned chops are another secret to this dish. I was always doubtful that I would like this type of recipe when I would see it in cookbooks. DH saw this recipe on a cooking show and decided to try it. We enjoy this as a late morning brunch or a Sunday supper. The prep time includes the cooking time for the grits. Treat yourself and use the old fashioned grits and not instant. There is no comparison between the two. It is a long cooking time but is well worth it.
