Creamy Pork Chops and Potatoes

The other day I needed a dinner that I could make ahead and leave in the oven.  I combined a couple of recipes to come up with this.  It was a hit with our entire family.

I like to buy full boneless pork loins at Sam's Club and then cut them into chops or leave the size we need for a roast.  The price is usually cheapest that way and I'm all about cutting our food budget.  I keep everything in this recipe on hand (aside from the French's Fried Onions) so it is something I could throw together  spur of the moment.

Creamy Pork Chops and Potatoes

6-8 pork loin chops (boneless or bone-in)
6 russet potatoes, peeled and sliced

2 10 oz. cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 can evaporated milk
3/4 C. water
3 T. onion soup base (1 package of Lipton onion soup is a little over 2 T. so just use that if you'd rather not have a package open.  I buy mine in bulk so it's easier for measuring)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt

French's fried onions, optional

Grease a 9x13 baking dish.  place sliced potatoes in the bottom and set the pork chops evenly spaced on top of them.

Mix together the soup, milk, water, onion soup, and salt and pepper.  Pour over the pork chops and potatoes.   Sprinkle a few handfuls of the French's Fried Onions over the top.  Cover with foil and bake at 325 for 2 hours. 

Joy's Notes:  I used 8 pork chops and put this in an 11x14 pan this time.  The French Fried onions are a nice touch but not critical.  I just had them leftover from Thanksgiving dinner's green bean casserole so I used them.  Also - I needed this to bake while I was at church so I set my oven for 275 and left it in for 4 hours.  Perfect!

    1. Tammie is correct, just a 10 1/2 oz. can of condensed soup. I use all sorts of brands of it. Thanks for asking - I'll adjust the recipe to be more clear on this!

  7. If only wanting to make 4 pork chops does cutting the recipe in half work?? And what would you recommend for cook time?

    1. I'm positive it would work just fine to cut it in half. I'd think you could go with the same cooking time or try shortening it by 15 minutes to half an hour.

  8. No offense, but why do people claim old recipes as their own? My Granny made this recipe all my life. It was and still is my Uncle Jack's favorite meal. You can also replace the potatoes with rice and do the same thing, or use chicken instead of pork. However, your picture looks god.

  9. Great recipe! I make this with 'bone in' pork chops and rice too. Brown the chops in a fry pan first then add (any size) can mushroom soup with equal liquid. Two hours for sure..I like the meat to fall off the bone ..the rice or spuds will be well cooked and nice and saucy👍👍 Your recipe photo looks awesomely yummy! :)
