Meat with Bones in it, AKA, Pork Chops

 

This recipe is so easy, I almost feel guilty.  I’ve been making it since the guys were young.  I’ve never been major into cooking meat.  I’m not a vegetarian, just not a big meat fan.  Mom made pork chops for us once upon a time when the boys were younger and Chris was kind of freaked that she had meat with bones in it.  I usually cooked with hamburger; I could stretch it a lot further.

We lived on a very tight budget for a long time.  Between Greg going to college, me not working outside the home and the expenses of raising kids, pork chops were a very big deal.  This was a TREAT!  Of course, now Costco sells a huge pork tenderloin for $1.99 a pound.  I really love you Costco.  I buy one every few months and cut it into chops and roasts for the Hunka-hunka and I.  I prefer my chops about 1 inch thick, but you have to decide on your preference.

 

“Stuffed” Pork Chops

 

Brown 4 to 6 pork chops, with or without bones.  Place in a 9 x 13 pan.

Mix up a box of Stove Top Stuffing per package instructions.  Put a scoop on top of each pork chop.

Combine a can of Cream of Mushroom soup and ½ cup white wine.  Pour this over the pork chops and stuffing.

Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees.

 

*  from the Recipe Box:

I found this recipe in mom’s recipe box; I’d forgotten all about it.  She called it Lynn’s Pork Chops.  I felt famous and stuff.  I haven’t made this in such a long time.  It can look dressy or every day.  I used to freeze up pans.  I would make it up to the baking part, cool it and then wrap it for the freezer.  I think I’d better start again.  I do enjoy pork chops.

The other cool thing I’ve discovered, 4-packs of wine at Trader Joe’s.  We don’t drink a lot of wine so I would waste so much when I would open a bottle of wine for so little.  But my heroes at Trader Joe’s knew I only needed 1/2 cup and these amazing little cans of Rose or White are 4 ounces each for only $4.99 a 4-pack.  It was meant to be.

and remember:  You know it’s a good day when you don’t have to unleash the Flying Monkeys.  Big kiss, Lynn
