Reviews for Pork Chops with Scalloped Potatoes
"great recipe. Since there are only 2 of us, I halved it with no problems. Also made with like amount of chicken broth made with bullion since I was out of broth. Tasted great and met with Husband approval! Watch the salt amount if using bullion or not homemade chicken broth. Skipped extra 30 min uncover time as they were done already."
"First time writing a review but wanted to comment after following some of the other reviewer recommendations. Sadly, I should have tried the recipe first as written but so many said that additional sauce was needed. So rather than double the ingredients, I did a 1.5X the amounts and had enough sauce to sufficiently cover the potatoes. After an hour, I removed the foil and there was so much sauce/juice that the dish was swimming in liquid. I literally spooned out all of the extra sauce which easily made up the extra 1/2 that I added. The potatoes were very tender (used a mandolin for thinner slices) and the sauce was a hit -- delicious. Next time I would brown the chops and only add to the dish at the last 30 minutes of cooking. I used 1 inch chops and they turned out dryer than I'd like. Will make again but without the extra sauce"
"I followed the directions and to me it was a waste of meat. The chops were horrible, very hard. Potatoes were good with the gravy."
"Very tasty and moist! The only thing I would change would be to skip the last 30 minutes uncovered. It seems to dry the pork out. Mine were done in the hour the chops were covered. Delicious!!"
"Absolutely delicious. One of our favorite recipes."
"MMM MMM Good! Easy comfort food. Keeper!"
"It's the first time that I try to prepare something so easy, It turned delicious and even my 3 yo son enjoyed."
"Prepping takes a bit of time but the meal was good. Only fixed four pork chops because there are only two of us. Potatoes were better the second night warmed up with the remaining two chops."
"I'm thinking 1 hour is too long to cook these chops. I think I would just brown the chops and put them on top of my scalloped potatoes that have been in the oven for awhile and let everything finish at the same time."
"The gravy was bland..no flavor. I added some sharp cheddar to the broth mixture and it made it much tastier. More like a scalloped potato."
