Very easy and delicious. This uses the "canned" fried onion rings. Found the recipe in a local prep school's 1995 cookbook (Pingry) which I bought in the library book sale. The recipe was submitted by Connie Fayen. Note: You can use plain yogurt instead of the sour cream. Found another variation which has all the same ingredients PLUS 1/2 tsp. ginger and 1/4 tsp. crushed rosemary.
- Season chops with salt, pepper and whatever else you like (I like garlic powder) and brown chops in margarine or butter; drain.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Place the browned chops in single layer in a glass baking dish.
- Heat the mushroom soup, plus 1/2 a can of water and thyme and mix well.(In the same pan that the chops were browning in- thanks Ms_Bold!).
- When blended, mix in sour cream, parsley, and crushed fried onions (reserve some for sprinkling over the top).
- Pour this mixture over the chops and then sprinkle the remaining reserved onions on top.
- Cover and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F.
- Remove cover for the last 5 minutes of baking.
This was DELICIOUS!!! I fixed this for dinner with Bobby Flay's Roasted Beets for Recipes#370885 and mashed potatoes. DH ate two large chops and loved them with the mashed potatoes and gravy. He said he definately wants this at least two times a month. I followed the directions as written and used fresh thyme. Definately going into my Favorites of 2010! Thank you!
I cut this down to just two chops and everything was delicious....I may have had a bit too much gravy, but that was perfect for me! It was delicious. Normally I'm not a big fan of pork chops, but this recipe is a definite keeper. Thanks for sharing!
OMG!!! This is awesome! Will make it again and again! I could eat the gravy all by itself it is that good! Thx for posting... Cyndi
