Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 7 bone-in pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 4 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 5 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • Hot mashed potatoes, optional
  • Chopped fresh thyme, optional

Directions

  1. Combine the first 8 ingredients; rub over both sides of pork chops. In a Dutch oven, brown chops in oil for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove and set aside. In the same pan, saute onions and garlic for 2 minutes. Add carrots and broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat.
  2. Return chops to pan. Cover and bake at 325° until meat and vegetables are tender, 1-1/2 to 2 hours. If desired, thicken pan juices. If desired, serve with potatoes and fresh thyme.
