    So delicious, a nice meal in one dish. I substituted cream of mushroom soup and added some dried celery flakes.

    This is my favorite way to make pork chops - an oldie from TOH. I do simmer it for closer to 45 min. Chops are tender & juicy.

    This is very good comfort food; however, I did have to simmer mine for about an hour.
