Equipment needed to make this easy Pork Chops Dish
Time for my faithful Le Creuset Bake and Serve Dish
I love Le Creuset Bakeware because you can use it to cook and serve. It is also very hard wearing and dishwasher safe too.
To cook my one pot pork chops you will need:
- A shallow oven proof baking dish that will allow the pok chops to be spread out in one layer
- Sharp knives
- A cutting board (bamboo is the most environmentally friendly)

Safety tips for cooking with Pork
Make sure the pork is thoroughly cooked
As with chicken, Pork is one of those meats that needs to be completely cooked before consuming.
No preparation of the meat is needed for this recipe but do ensure that during the preparation process, that you wipe down any surfaces with bacteriacide and wash throughly any equipment that comes into contact with the raw meat before you use it for anything else.
Variations to the standard recipe
I have cooked this recipe many times and vary it sometimes by adding apple or celery.
If you wish to add apple, simply take two large cooking apples, peel and slice (not too thinly) and add into the potato and tomato layers before cooking.
To add celery, simply take a couple of stalks of celery chop into 1 inch pieces and add to the potatoes and tomatoes, again before you cook.
