View Full Version : easy pork chop recipe needed
02-14-2006, 02:45 PM
After reading Amy's post the other day, I vowed to clean out my freezer and plan this week's meals. Unfortunately, I found a pack of pork chops that I had forgotten existed.
Does anyone have a somewhat quick recipe for "not so fresh" pork chops? It would be greatly appreciated. :) :)

Sick DD on lap. excuse typing!
season with salt, pepper, paprika. brown in skillet. take out, pour off some schmaltz, not all.
Put one can cream of mushroom in skillet and mix with leftover goo. Put pork chops back in and simmer on low until ready to eat. The longer you leave them, the more tender they become.
Even I can do it!
edited for spelling!

You might try baking them in tomato sauce, or a barbeque sauce, it would make them more tender, probably. Or cook them with slices of apples?

If you're not anti-sauerkraut, here's an easy crock pot recipe that works well with freezer burned chops:
Rinse and drain sauerkraut (I buy it in a bag in the meat section -- avoid the canned stuff if possible) and place int he bottom of a crockpot.
Add 1 or 2 chopped apples to the crockpot.
Pour in apple juice until the kraut and apple are mostly covered.
Place the chops on top (you can also thaw and sear your chops in a skillet if you want to add extra steps).
Cook for several hours (varies widely depending on crock post and thickness of chops)
Check for doneness with a digital thermometer.

This is not my recipe. I got if from a previous "What is your easiest recipe" thread. It called for Chicken, but I had all ready bought pork chops so I used them instead and we loved it.
1 can of coke
1 cup of ketchup
Mix together and simmer pork chops until they fall apart - about an hour or so. Then using two forks shred the pork and continue cooking until the liquid is all most gone.
I also added some chili powder to ours. Served it on rolls and everyone LOVED it. Tastes just like pulled pork!

this is easy and yummy!
Put pork chops in an oven pan.
You can always sprinkle with Lawry's or some seasoning salt before you start the layering.
Top each chop with an onion slice, lemon slice, brown sugar, and ketchup (in that order). i usually use about a teaspoon of sugar and a nice squirt of chup).
Bake at 350 for 45 min to 1 hour. Serve with apple sauce and potatoes or rice or bread and a salad and veggies.

If you brine the chops (EASY), they'll be very tender. :)
