Recipe Note

Test Kitchen Tips

  • A mandoline makes quick work of slicing potatoes and onions.
  • Rib chops are recommended because they have a slightly higher fat content than leaner loin chops. Even with longer cooking times, they tend to stay juicy and flavorful. Bonus: They're usually less expensive!

    "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"

    "This recipe claims the prep is 25 mins it has been over 1 hour and 20 mins and i have only managed to chop my potatoes, make the gravy which wasnt enough to cover my meat so ill be making another batch and cook 1 pork chop will never make again i only made 4 pork chops because i was so hunrgry and felt like passing out didnt have the energy to make the other 4 chops. It took 1 hour and 15 mins to bake on 350 for an hour then 375 for 15 mins. The flavor was delicious og the gravy i added some garlic in it an my potatoes were perfect but my chops were dry tasting. My grandma used to bake her chops with potatoes and i was craving it but this is definently not my grandmas way of making it her chops were very juicy and delicious and the gravy was more liquid like but she is passed so the recipe is still a mystery ??but this helped curbed that craving. I do suggest not adding salt to this dish because the chicken broth already has alot of salt in it!"

I used everything listed in the recipe, but used Lawry's Seasoning Salt with the pepper. This is by far the best pork chop dish I have ever made. Something to note: After an hour, I took the cover (tin foil) off and checked the pork chops and potatoes. They were done, therefore, my meal was done in 1 hour instead of 1 1/2 hours. I'm so glad I checked them so that they didn't end up dry. This was an easy and delicious 5 star meal that I will be making often!

    "This has been a family favorite ever since it was first published--one of the first recipes I tried from TOH! I make the recipe as is, with great results. I use boneless chops. The food processor makes quick work of slicing the potatoes."

    "This recipe has that authentic down-home flavor! I doubled the gravy ingredients and added 1 teaspoon FRESH lemon juice and 2 teaspoons Kitchen Bouquet just to give it the best color. Also, I don't think it needs to cook as long as the recipe says - I only cooked it 1 hr."

    "This dish comes together very easily, and is delicious. My husband had 2 servings; he generally does not care for scalloped potatoes. I know we'll be having this again and again. Thank you for sharing your recipe!!"
