Adaptable Pork Chops Recipe

Easy to prepare then just leave it to cook

Being a busy work at home Mum, while I enjoy cooking, I do like to prepare tasty meals that are easy to cook and don't need watching over all the time. This Pork Chops recipe is very easy to prepare and as it is a one pot recipe, there's not much else that needs doing once it is in the oven.

You can also cook it with additional ingredients such as apples or celery.

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.

This looks like a great recipe. Would you think I could add apples and carrots? The more in the pot the better I like it.

Wow, does that ever look scrumptious. Pork chops are a favorite for us. And anything one pot is a keeper. Thanks AJ

Yes, if you like Rosemary, then the aroma of this dish is wonderful as it cooks.

Digby_Adams on 11/03/2011

Oh My Gosh, I think I can smell it cooking now with the rosemary and garlic. I'm going to give this recipe a go - with the apples I think. One-pot meals are my favorite. They aren't finicky and if my husband is late coming home, the meal isn't ruined.
