Baked pork chops in white sauce
PREP: 30 MIN COOK: 1 1/2 HRS. TOTAL: 2 HRS.
- 6 pork chops
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 2 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/3 cup white wine
One suggestion from a recipe reviewer is this:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Rinse pork chops, pat dry, and season with garlic powder and seasoning salt to taste. Place the beaten eggs in a small bowl. Dredge the pork chops lightly in flour, dip in the egg, and coat liberally with bread crumbs.
- Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the pork chops 5 minutes per side, or until the breading appears well browned. Transfer the chops to a 9x13 inch baking dish, and cover with foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. While baking, combine the cream of mushroom soup, milk and white wine in a medium bowl. After the pork chops have baked for an hour, cover them with the soup mixture. Replace foil, and bake for another 30 minutes.
I took some advice from previous reviewers and made sure that I fried the chops until the outside was very crispy (make sure the oil is hot before adding the chops, makes a difference in how tender they turn out). I also doubled the gravy, and used 1 can cream of mushroom and 1 can golden mushroom. That really helped keep the dish from having that "some kind of meat covered w/cream of mushroom soup" taste. I also sauteed some fresh mushrooms in the pan I'd cooked the pork in and added them to the soup mixture. I added some extra garlic and just a couple dashes of cayenne. I cooked the chops for 20/20.....needed less cooking time I think cause I'd browned them so well. Turned out wonderful!
