Reviews for Pork & Potato Supper
"Great recipe! My family really enjoyed it. My 7 year old even commented how juicy the meat was! Will definitely make again!"
"Yum! Added Northwoods seasoning (Penzeys.com) when I was cooking the meat. Removed the mushrooms when they were done and added them back in with the meat at the end. Instead of thickening with flour, I just stirred in 4 oz. of cream cheese. (Most of the chicken stock had cooked into the potatoes, so it was very thick and I added a little extra stock with the cream cheese.) Very tasty dinner!"
"Wow! This went over well with my family. Husband even liked it. Very tasty. Great flavor!"
"Really good all-in-one skillet supper. Easy and filling, who could ask for more on a busy, cold winter night? In fact, I have to confess that my husband cooked most of the dish before I got home. He's a big hearty eater so we did get a laugh out the fact that I ate one portion and he at the rest when the recipe commented it feeds 4 people! We were both impressed with the recipe and will make it again."
"I enjoyed the gravy but my family decided this recipe was just "okay". It was fun to try but we'll opt for something different next time."
"Was also pleasantly surprised! We really enjoyed this meal. We did skip the mushrooms."
"I was pleasantly surprised by how flavorful this turned out. I loved how it made a nice rich gravy as rwippel mentioned. I warmed up a can of peas and had that with the dish, and I think that made it even better."
"My husband really wanted to try this recipe. I said if you want it, why don't you cook it? Well he did and it was good. The flour and chicken broth made a lovely, light gravy. Peas would be a nice addition to this dish too!"
"Good flavor, and quick to prepare. I didn't have mushrooms, but added a sliced onion and sliced carrots."
"This was pretty good -- even Mr. Picky liked it. I added poultry seasoning, onion, and garlic. Also used olive oil instead of butter. And corn starch instead of flour because I hate the taste of flour as a thickening agent."
"This is a keeper and will be making this many times. Added a whole sliced onion with the mushrooms to boost the flavor."
"This was a great recipe! Made it with left over loin roast and turned out great!"
