Pork Chop Casserole and Giveaway

We had special guest with us for Halloween week. Audrey and Mo's grandparents visit from Milwaukee as often as they can. When they visit we try to find fun meals to cook that the entire family will enjoy. During this last visit we found a new family favorite, Pork Chop Casserole. Not only is it easy to make but it turns out so tasty. 

As the head chef and chief shopper I get to make food decisions for the family. This means that we do not eat beef because I do not like the taste. To keep us from chicken and fish overload I like to find fun ways to cook pork. This is new for me because I have only been eating pork as an adult for a few years. I had no idea how tasty it was!

Jodi with the Kansas Pork Association has been kind enough to send us tons of recipes and even an adorable book for the girls to read. They are learning all about pig farmers and I am learning how to cook pork. She also sent this amazing package for us to giveaway to one of our readers!

Who wants to win?

Pork Chop Casserole
  • 8 boneless pork chops
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 10 3/4 oz can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 2.8 oz can french-fried onions
  • Hot cooked noodles
Place flour, salt and pepper in shallow dish. Drag pork chops through flour. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook pork chops until brown on each side. Mix soup, broth, sour cream, ginger, and rosemary in a medium bowl. Add half the fried onions then pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Place chops on top of sauce and bake covered at 350F for 25 minutes. Uncover and place remaining onions on top. Cook uncovered for 5-10 minutes or until chops cooked. Serve with noodles.

Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Cook chops
  3. Place chops in dish
  4. Bake chops
  5. Add onions
Audrey and Maurene's Tasks:
  1. Measure and add ingredients
  2. Coat chops with flour mixture
  3. Mix sauce
  4. Pour sauce into pan
This can be made up to placing chops in baking dish and placed covered in the fridge until time to cook. That will save a few minutes of prep time before dinner.

  2. I love roasted pork loin, brined in an herb mixture for a few days before hitting the oven. I have never had such tender and juicy pork.

  3. My favorite is swiss pork chops. It's pork chops in tomato sauce with green beans. Usually done in the crockpot until the pork chops are falling apart, and eaten with mashed potatoes. It's soooo yummy.

FUN FUN....My favorite way to eat pork is anyway the resturant prepares it, OR my mother or my mother in law or my husband and I am thinking I might just visit Audrey and Maurene and see how they fix it...........Aunt Stephanie.

  10. Honestly, we bake or grill pork chops (bake if they are thinner so they stay juicy) with just a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
    But if we are eating out -- pulled pork ALWAYS wins. I should try that sometime when I am feeling adventurous.

  12. I love making traditional pork chops for my family, but my special trick is the homemade applesauce I serve alongside the pork chops! So easy and SO incredibly tasty! I've been known to eat it for dessert warmed up over ice cream! My husband knows if he asks for the pork chops that he'll get the applesauce with it... I love that meal!

  13. Faith's favorite pork chop recipe is a creamy ranch pork chop (you make a gravy from a cream soup, ranch seasonings and milk). Ben's is breaded pork chops, with garlic bread crumbs. :)
