My husband and I love pork, but my daughters....not so much. I found a less traditional way of making pork chops that they love. I use tomato soup, sliced onions, powdered mustard, garlic, pepper, and a tiny hint of brown sugar. Place the chops in the pan, layer the sliced onions over them, and pour the soup mixture over everything. Bake for an hour and serve with mashed potatoes. The sauce is a great, thick gravy and the chops are juicy and flavorful. A salad or any other veggie works great.

AMAZING recipe... Hawaiian porkchops...
Cook the pork chops in a good ammount of vinegar and canned pineapple(add the can pineapple and vinegar at the very beginning... the vinegar adds tenderness...)
at the last 10 mins or so of cooking the chops add brown sugar to the pan... about half a cup for 4 pork chops ..
this meal always has been a hit in my family and its very simple to make.. sorry there are not official measurements

you probably already heard these ones...but one option would be serving it with a cream based soup, like cream of mushroom or cream of celery. Tastes yummy and quick! I also love just adding mango salsa on my pork chops! I don't have time to make the salsa myself, so I just make sure I buy it. These are fast, easy and you get all your veggies servings. I also generally just bake the pork chops, cuz it allows me more time to spend with my son or prepping other accompanying foods. My 2.5yr old loves these meals.
I'm a pork chops and apple sauce kind of girl. It's also good with a mango chutney. I don't like to do anything fancy with it, just salt and pepper. Pork goes so well with sweet things. My hubby doesn't like his apple sauce cold so I often heat it to go with the chops. It's also good with wild rice mixed with roaster carrots and sweet peas.

I like to place the pork chops in an electric skillet (sprayed with pam). Brown the first side then flip to brown the other when you flip them add little red potatoes (cut in half), baby carrots and sliced onions ( like your doing a pot roast), cover with a can of chicken or beef broth and bring to a boil, cover and put on simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. serve

I love mashed potatoes & gravy with pork; but the latino touch is awesome rice with pigeon beans (arroz con gandules), fried green platain (tostones), mashed green platain (mangu), or cassaba in olive oil, onion and garlic (yuca al mojo).

I really like cranberry sauce with my pork (those bags of fresh cranberries you can get around Thanksgiving freeze really well, so I tend to stock up), but I've also done orange sauce, or pan-fried and made gravy with the drippings.
I also like to slice it thin, and stir-fry it with some garlic and ginger, vegetables, and a slightly spicy sauce, and serve over rice.

A really easy recipe!!! Shred up your leftover pork roast and throw it in the crockpot. Add some green enchilada sauce, cumin, and cyenne. Let it simmer on low for about 4 hours then serve it on soft taco shells with some shredded lettuce, cheese and a squeeze of lime. This is so delicious and tastes like you slaved over it allllll day long!

I usually make a parmesan crusted pork chop. I just crush up some ritz crackers in gallon zip lock bag (or you can use breadcrumbs, I have when I was out of ritz), put some parmesan cheese in there (about 1/8-1/4 of a cup) shake it up, throw the pork chops in, shake them around, or you can do an egg wash first if you want a thicker crust. Bake them. I usually serve that with cheesy mashed potatoes. Just make mashed potatoes & grate some sharp cheddar into it. I serve it with english peas usually or broccoli.
I also do a pork chop in the skillet & serve it with lima beans & sweet potatoes.
If you are doing pulled pork, roasted potatoes are always great with it, with roasted asparagus or corn on the cob.

We use unseasoned ground pork to make pork burgers...grill them on the grill with some BBQ and YUMMY!! Then we just add some salad or something. Also, we are huge fans of BBQ pork steaks, again on the grill. We add twice baked potatoes or mac & cheese.

I use pork for just about everything. we stopped eating red meat about a year ago. I buy the ground pork, besides the fact that it's better for you it's also cheaper and shopping on a budget is hard enough. I use it in tacos, pasta, hamburger helper, meat loaf, etc. basically anything you use ground beef for I use pork instead.

I make some great candied apples, made with red hots and sugar, very simple and everyone always loves them. We make a dip for raw veggies, just cream cheese and chili mix to taste, which goes great too. some type of hot rolls or biscuits and usu green beans or the niblets corn in butter sauce and we are set. If my sisters(daughters) ask me when we are going to fix something, I know they enjoy it. And, it is one of those things that each person has something to do. I usually cook the apples the night before-they are good hot or cold. Not difficult, fairly easy cleanup.

I like what we call kalua pig which is a nice piece of pork butt not too lean covered with liquid smoke and Hawaiian salt or course rock salt. Slow cooked In the oven 4-6 hrs when it's done shred it and mix in some shredded cabbage. Oh it is so yummy!!!

Or you can get creative with a small layer of apple butter on the bottom of a pan, begin heating the pork in it, add some lemon peel, orange peel (grated), then slice a small apple really thin & toss in when it's almost done. Let it simmer in the juices & it's soooo moist! Not as sweet as you'd think, either.

I like to buy a cheap hunk of pork picnic roast and slow cook it in the oven all afternoon @ aboiut 225degrees. I usually toss some lemon slices and pepper over the top or go with sage, rosemary and thyme with a little olive oil. So good with a salad and some baby red with dill.

I put mine in the crockpot with BBQ sauce. It makes the pork so tender and you can use it for sandwiches the next day. If I do applesauce with it, I (you can peel or not according to what you like) cut up apples, put them in a small pot with a little butter melted on the bottom. I also put in a little cinammon, all spice, and nutmeg. I just cook it really slow until the apples are soft and can be mashed. It's good too if it is a little chunky. You can add a little bit of water if they are getting too dry and need a little more moisture. Nothing beats homemade applesauce!
