In Storm Lake, Iowa, Pat Botine surrounds this moist pork roast with a pretty combination of carrots and onion. It feeds a family of four with plenty left over for dishes later in the week. And since the creamy gravy is served at the table, the leftover pork is easy to use.
After driving my family crazy trying new recipes, I always return to this standby. These moist, comforting pork chops come out great every time. We love the rich gravy over the chops and mashed potatoes.
