I added a teaspoon of cajun seasoning to the flour for a little extra kick, and since I had very thick pork chops, I popped the pan into the oven for almost two hours to get nice, tender meat. We really enjoyed this dinner.

This is a very simple but tasty recipe. I added some carrots to it too and it was good. Even for children (if you reduce the amount of hot sauce ).
