Let’s just say you have the world’s greatest Housesitter every year when you go on vacation. She takes excellent care of our dogs, but MORE important, when we get home, we always have the most wonderful treats awaiting. This summer, we walked in our house after 10 days and didn’t even greet the dogs……just went straight to the Crockpot where Laura had cooked us Pork Chops in the most luscious gravy. Of course I stole the recipe, and here it is. Let’s just face it: some of the old recipes are the best. Anything that cooks in it’s own gravy for a few hours is impossible to ignore….
CROCK POT PORK CHOPS
6-8 Assorted Pork Chops
1 Package Ranch Dressing (dry)
1 Package Mushroom gravy (dry)
2 Cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1/2 tsp. Pepper (we use more–love pepper!)
2 1/2 cans milk
1-2 packages sliced crimini mushrooms (or your choice)
Place uncooked pork chops on the bottom of crockpot. Whisk together all the dry mixes with the soup and milk. Pour mushrooms over, then sauce. Cover and cook on high approximately 6 hours or till chops are tender. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes
NOTE: Sorry, Laura. I can never leave a recipe alone. The second time I made it, I added our favorites: 1/2 cup sherry (I just love that flavor in gravies). And over the chops about 2 hours into cooking I put about 4 sliced potatoes, covering them with gravy. Truly a ONE pot meal!!! So delish! Ask Me How I Know….
coming up from Laura (send me a picture!)…a Peruvian custard and some other surprises…
