Smothered Chops / Oven or Crock Pot

 

I just love anything made with onion…this recipe is no exception…the more the merrier. The creamy, flavorful sauce, could be eaten over mashed potatoes, noodles or rice…my kids wanted noodles. I usually prefer the bone-in, center-cut chops with this recipe, but all I had was boneless. This recipe can also be made in the crockpot…I didn’t have time for that, so I baked it in the oven…

Enjoy!

Ingredients
6bone in center cut chops, or boneless…i think the bone-in chops tend to be more tender unless done in the crockpot
2 – 3 Tbsp oil for browning chops
salt and pepper to season pork
onion powder for seasoning pork
1 large onion, sliced
1 can(s)(14 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
1 can(s)(14 ounces) cream of chicken soup
1 can(s)( 10 ounces) cream of onion soup
1/2 milk
1/4 Worcestershire sauce
1/2 small can, french fried onions
prepared parsley buttered noodles, mashed potatoes or rice to serve with

Step-By-Step

1Season chops.

2Brown chops over medium heat in oil for approximately 5 minutes each side.

3In the same skillet, caramelize onions.
4Place browned chops in the casserole dish. ( or crock pot )

5Mix soups, onion, milk and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl.

6Pour mixture over chops; sprinkle with french fried onions and bake for at least 60 minutes or until chops are tender in a 350-degree oven. ( In crock Pot – 3 hrs high or 6 -7 hrs on low ).

7It should be bubbly and golden…

8-Serve over buttered, parsley egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice.Note: Sour cream can also be mixed in at the end of the crock pot method. It gives it some added flavor. ( Optional ) I like it either way. If adding to the oven method, add it to the soups before pouring over meat.
