Smothered Pork Chops

I grew up with this recipe, as my mother made it quite often It really is one of the KISS ones,,, I always make a batch of mashed potatoes so that I can smother them with the sauce too!

Smothered Pork Chops


4 to 6 pork chops about one inch thick (bone in cook faster)

1 white onion sliced

1/2 cup orange juice

1/2 Heinz catsup

orange slices


In frying pan, brown the chops in a little oil on both sides but do NOT cook them through.

Add in the sliced onions and cook on medium until softened.

Mix the OJ and catsup together and pour over the chops.

Cook covered on medium for about 20 minutes, depending on thickness of chops.

Turn the chops over and add the orange slices. Cook another 15 to 20 minutes depending on how well done you like them.

Remove the chops and keep warm while you turn up the heat on the remaining sauce to thicken. Stir often so as not to burn.

Serve with the mashed potatoes and a vegetable, using the sauce as a gravy.

Just like Mom’s!!!
