Ready in 45 minutes

These tender pork chops have been a hit with my family for years. You won't need a knife.They will be fall off the bone fork tender and very tasty.

"I found this using the leftover tool, and it was honestly one of the most delicious meals I've had in a long time. The only downside is that it does take a fair amount of time from start to finish (2h30m-ish), but it is so worth it. Thank you for this recipe."

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. dust both sides of the pork chops with salt, pepper, and set aside. Slice the onions thinly and reserve. Peel and quarter the potatoes then submerge in cold water until ready to use.

In a large high-sided oven- safe skillet, heat the butter and oil to sizzling on a medium-high stovetop . Place the chops in the pan and brown on each side. Remove the chops and set aside. You are not cooking them through at this point.

Add the onions to the skillet and cook over medium heat until tender and lightly browned..

Place the browned pork chops on top of half the onions.

Drain the uncooked potatoes, mix with thyme, and garlic.

Add the remaining onions over the chops. Add potatoes. Pour chicken stock over all. Add wine if used and additional thyme if desired.

Cover the skillet and bring contents to a boil on stovetop for 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and place covered skillet in the pre heated oven and bake for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until pork chops are tender and cooked through.

CAUTION: USE POT HOLDERS

Remove cover, sprinkle chops with parmesan cheese and parsley and place under broiler for 1-2 minutes to lightly brown.

Plate and serve with your choice of vegetables. I steamed the baby carrots for 15 minutes then added the zucchini strips for 2-3 minutes.

A favorite in my house since the first day we made it. I misread the recipe and threw it all in the pot from the start. Still loved it. Still do. I omit the white potato. Just as good using rough cut carrot celery and parsnip.

Overlooked if recipe is followed. I dislike recipe titles that imply ingredients are included. The suggested vegetables are a side dish.

So good! I don't have an oven proof skillet so I just poured it all into a glass baking dish & covered w/ foil. I also threw my zucchini & carrots on top of everything for the last 10-15 mins. Turned out great! Thanks for posting this recipe!

The pork was very tender, didn't even need a knife. The flavor was great. It did take some time to put together, but it was definitely worth it.

This was good but the wine added a strange taste to it. Next time i will only use the broth. The pork was very tender!

I found this using the leftover tool, and it was honestly one of the most delicious meals I've had in a long time. The only downside is that it does take a fair amount of time from start to finish (2h30m-ish), but it is so worth it. Thank you for this recipe.
