Pork Chop Casserole #SundaySupper #HelpingHands

Only two chops left.

Thanksgiving is behind us but we are still with relatives. Everyone is tired of turkey but no one wants to cook. When that happens we ask the girls to help with a meal and make a yummy casserole. Since we did not have a green bean casserole this year we decided on a close relation, the Pork Chop Casserole.

My helper this week was Maurene. I should say I was her helper as I did little more than brown the chops and tell her the steps in the recipe. As soon as she can read I have a feeling I will be obsolete in the kitchen.

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 or chow mein noodles
  • 10-14 oz bag frozen green beans
  • Hot cooked noodles or rice
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. Add green beans to pan and toss to coat. Place chops on top of beans 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 or rice.


So easy and so much fun.

This week is also a special #SundaySupper as the group is putting together meals to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Anytime we are asked to bring a dish to someone in need at church Audrey always signs us up for this meal. It really is a favorite and so easy to transport.

  4. So my husband loves green bean casserole and he isn't so fond of pork chops. This looks like a great recipe to get him to eat pork chops. I bet they are nice and tender after baking.

    1. You could use boneless chicken for him. The chops just cook on top.

    1. The original recipe had the chops with no green beans. I thought it was natural to put them together.

    1. I am so proud of her as well but sometimes it is a challenge to get her to understand we cannot help everyone.

  13. It never seizes to amaze me how great your girls are in the kitchen. My little boy wouldn't have the patience/attention span or the coordination.

    1. It is easy to start them playing with things. Bowls and spoons are a lot of fun. Then you can move to supervised help. Mo has been cooking for over 2 years. After that much practice anyone can do it!

    1. They already do so much. I will be so happy when they don't need me and I can go back to reading bad murder mysteries.

  15. This reminds me of something my mom made but with onions on top, love the crunch of the noodles though

    1. Onions are an option but my father-in-law is not a fan. I was looking for a good alternative. My husband mentioned later he does not like green beans. Next time we will use broccoli.

  16. Your recipe sounds tasty, but what gets me is Maurene helping you with the pork. My little guy would be trying to eat the raw meat.

  17. Awww, I love seeing your lil one help out in the kitchen. This sounds delicious. I totally appreciate dishes where you can throw everything in one container and let it finish cooking in the oven.
