How to make Real Old-Fashioned Pork Chop Casserole:
Step 1: Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, and pour in the olive oil. Pour in the previously seasoned pork chops, and cook until golden brown on both sides.
Step 2: While the chops are browning, wash and dry each potato. Cut slices as thin and even as possible, just like onions. Reserve.
Step 3: Remove the pork chops from the pan, and add the onions without turning off the flame. Let them cook and brown for 5 minutes and remove from the pan.
Step 4: In the same pan, add the two tablespoons of butter, and add the flour without stopping beating. Beware of lumps.
Step 5: Add the chicken broth little by little, and stir until smooth. Boil until thickened.
Step 6: Pour in the chicken cream, along with the shredded cheese and onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and any other herbs you like. Lower the heat.
Step 7: Butter a separate saucepan, and place the potatoes stacked on top of each other. Pour the previously prepared sauce over the potatoes without mixing.
Step 8: Place the pork chops on the potatoes and cover with aluminum foil. Bake in a preheated oven to 350°F for 75 minutes. Once ready, remove from the oven and allow resting for 10 minutes before serving.
Done! Enjoy 🙂

- Step1: If using a bouillon cube (s) bring 1 3/4 C water to a boil and remove from heat and the bouillon cube dissolve.
Step2: Heat large skillet over med-high heat and drizzle the olive oil in the pan. Salt and pepper the chops. Add the chops to the pre-heated pan and brown well on both sides 3-4 minutes per side.
Step3: While chops are browning use this time to prep your potatoes. Peel, rinse and dry your potatoes.
Thinly slice each potato about 1/4 inch thick (again, don’t obsess just try to make them uniform).
Thinly slice onion and set aside.
Step4: Remove chops from pan and add onions. Let the onions cook in the drippings for 4-5 minutes or until onions are translucent and starting to get a nice caramelized color. Remove from pan.
Step5: Melt your 2 Tbsp butter in the same pan and add the flour whisk to make a roux.
Step6: Slowly add in the chicken stock and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened 1-2 minutes.
Step7: Add in the cream of chicken soup, shredded cheese (optional) and onion. Season with salt, pepper, and any other herb or spice to taste. Turn heat down to low.
Step8: Butter a 13×9 casserole dish. And arrange potatoes in an overlapping stacking pattern (yes, it is OK to arrange the potatoes in 2 layers- it will still cook evenly and throughly). Pour sauce over potatoes-no need to mix.
Step9: Arrange pork chops over potatoes and cover with foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 65-75 minutes or for more tender chops bake in 300 degree oven for about 2-2 1/2 hours. When finished remove foil and let sit for 10 minutes to give the sauce a chance to thicken.
