DIRECTIONS

  • 1. In a medium bowl, thoroughly blend condensed soup (Do NOT add any water), dry gravy mixes, salt and pepper. Fill one soup can 3/4 full of water and whisk into mixture. Mixture will be very thick. Set aside.

  • 3. Add one more tablespoon oil, if necessary, to pan.
  • 4. Saute onion over medium-low heat until translucent, but crisp/tender - about 5-8 minutes. Stir frequently. Do not allow onions to brown.
  • 5. Add garlic and saute for 1 more minute. Do not brown.
  • 6. Remove pan from heat.
  • 7. Fold onion/garlic mixture into soup mixture.
  • 8. Return chops to frying pan.
  • 9. Pour soup/onion mixture evenly over chops.
  • 10. Cover and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
  • 11. Lower temperature and simmer gently for 45 minutes to one hour.
  • 12. Thinner chops will take about 45 minutes to become really tender.
