Going way back into my memory bank, this recipe was always one of my favourite Mom dishes. She wasn’t a great cook, but this recipe still gets an A in my books! Some 50 years later I am still making this… a true comfort food! Serve them with mashed potatoes and enjoy the sauce…
Smothered Pork Chops
4 medium thick pork chops
1 or 2 white onions sliced
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup orange juice
1 orange sliced
In a fry pan, brown the pork chops with a little oil. Add the sliced onions and cook on low for about 5 to 10 minutes till they appear transparent. Pour in the ketchup and orange juice. Reduce heat to simmer for about 30 minutes. Check to see that the sauce does get too thick. If so, add a little more orange juice. When the chops are ready, they should be a little pink in the middle still. (Mother always overcooked pork back in those days). Add the slices of orange to heat.
Serve the chops with the mashed potatoes, pouring the sauce over the potatoes.
