Slow baked pork chops
« on: Oct 14, 2014, 01:23:31 PM »
Got this from Cook's Country and it's yummy.

Thin, bone in pork chops.
Beef stock - enough to barely cover chops while baking
Olive oil for browning chops and caramelizing onions
1 medium onion cut however you like your onions
Thyme (optional)
Flour - enough to cover both sides of pork chops
Pepper to taste


Put small amount of olive oil in pan - cook onions until they just start turning brown - you don't want to leave them transluscent
Remove onions and set aside
Flour chops on both sides and brown in same pan (may need a tad more oil)-pepper here to taste
Place onions in baking dish
Place floured, browned chops on top of onions
Add few springs of thyme
Barely cover with beef stock

Cook uncovered at 300 degrees for 1 hours 15 minutes or until chops are fork tender


When the chops were finished I removed them and added a little flour mixed with water to the stock left in the baking dish and stirred it in good, then returned the baking dish to the oven and let it cook to make a thicker gravy.

Sounds delicious. I do much the same although I begin and finish in a cast iron skillet. They never see the oven.

I've put  pork chops in the crock pot but they didn't come out this tasty.  Never tired an iron skillet.

Tina, do you cover them in the skillet?  And do you just cook them on very low heat?

Yes, I cover the skillet. But with a lid to a different pan because I don't have one for my skillet.  It is nearly the only way pork chops taste good any more. They've bred the flavor out of the pork along with the fat.

Is that what's happened?  They are practically flavorless.

I do mine in the over lying over an apple stuffing to keep them moist and flavorful.
