FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ’S)

Can I use different cuts of pork chops?

There is a reason I went with bone-in thick cut pork chops and that is because this is a whole meal being made with potatoes. We need the pork chops to cook along with the potatoes and not to dry out before the potatoes have had a chance to cook and get tender. If a thinner cut or boneless pork chops are used, they may be fully cooked well before the potatoes are ready. You can certainly try it but I do not recommend it. The bone does a couple of things here: it is adding flavor, and it adds moisture which keeps pork chops from drying out. If you aren’t adding the potatoes, then you can certainly use regular cut or boneless.

Can I change out the soup?

Sure! This is what helps build the gravy base, but you can swap it out for any other cream of something soup. Cream of celery, cream of mushroom, or any other cream soup that you think would taste good with this would work just fine.

Can I skip the browning step to save time?

You can but I really suggest taking the time to brown the chops. Browning them makes a difference in not just flavor, but it adds a nice touch visually. In addition, it helps seal in those juices and keeps them tender and moist.

What do I serve with this?

This is actually a full meal all in itself but you can add a salad or any of your favorite side dishes to go alongside it if needed. Maybe some steamed veggies or perhaps some crusty bread with butter!

Can these pork chops be made in the oven?

I have not tested this recipe in the oven – only a slow cooker so I could not tell you how to do that.

How to store Pork Chops and Potatoes?

Any leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Keep them longer in the freezer for up to 3 months.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)

  • small sweet onion – if you don’t like onions, just leave them out.
  • large russet potatoes– I have only ever made this with russet potatoes but Yukon gold or red should also work fine.
  • thick-cut bone-in pork chops – it needs to be thick cut and bone-in. Pork chops are a very lean cut of meat and so they may get done way before the potatoes get soft enough to eat. With a thicker cut of pork chops, they will cook evenly together. If you are making this without the potatoes, you can make this with the regular cut pork chops. I go into more detail above in the FAQ section.
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder – you can use any of your favorite seasoning blends. If you need a no salt option, try using Mrs. Dash seasoning.
  • cream of chicken soup– use your favorite brand or make your own homemade Cream of Chicken Soup (also please use low or no sodium options if you need them).
  • beef broth – you could also use chicken broth, vegetable broth and/or low or no sodium options.

    I”ve been making this with mushroom soup and fresh mushrooms, along with a half cup white wine. so good.

    1. Hi Wendy! I specifically created this for two. There are lots of recipes out there that cater to 6 & I’m sure there are plenty out there similar to this one but this is one of the few recipes just for two. Theoretically you could triple it for 6 but I’ve only tested this particular recipe for the two. 🙂
