Pork Chop Supper

As our dinner slowly simmers on the stove and fills our home with a very pleasant aroma, I can't help but smile and get excited to eat.  Years ago my sister in law gave us cookbook that her ward had put together.  Since then we have enjoyed many dinner recipes and delicious desserts found from that cookbook.  One inparticular was a favorite while we were living in Oregon while JBody was attending Chiropractic College.  I completely forgot about this favorite dinner until today while shopping at Costco.  I came across the meats and saw some perfectly packaged pork chops.  I knew exactly what was on the dinner menu: Pork Chop Supper.  And for your dinner enjoyment for another evening I have decided to pass the recipe onto you.  Hope you enjoy!

Pork Chop Supper
6 pork loin chops (If using the ones from costco, use 3 and slice them in half to make them thinner).
1/2 c. flour
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. dried thyme
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 large potatoes (we chose multicolored fingerlings tonight for color)
5 medium carrots, sliced
1 medium onion, cut into wedges
3 c. beef broth

Dredge pork in flour.  Heat oil in  a large skillet; brown the chops on both sides.  Spirinkle with thyme, salt, and pepper.  Peel potatoes (I never do) and cut into cubes; add to skillet along with carrots and onion.  Pour broth over all; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes. 

We love this dinner with a nice heaping of applesauce.  Can anyone tell me where the phrase, "Pork chops and applesauce," came from.  I remember hearing it in an old time tv show. 

Picture was taken right before I covered to let simmer, but doesn't it look so yummy?

Thanks Terri for the wonderful cookbook and submitting this oh so delicious recipe.

Sound's Yummy- I think the whole "Pork Chops & Applesauce" thing was Bobby on the Brady Bunch....

Audra you are right on with who said it. Everytime we have pork chops we have to have the applesause and then comes the phrase.
