Test Kitchen Tips
  • A mandoline makes quick work of slicing potatoes and onions.
  • Rib chops are recommended because they have a slightly higher fat content than leaner loin chops. Even with longer cooking times, they tend to stay juicy and flavorful. Bonus: They're usually less expensive!

      I read all the reviews first and then made this dish. I preboiled the potatoes after they were sliced, then used that pan to make the sauce to put over the potatoes. I seared the pork steaks in the iron skillet, moved them to a platter and arranged the potatoes and onions in the iron skillet and poured over the sauce. I put the pork steaks on top of the potatoes and baked this for 30 minutes covered. I removed the foil and baked it 15 more minutes. Everything was done and delicious. My family raved. I will make this again.

      Sounds great, but, three pans in order to make one dish! No way.

      Delicious! But I tweaked it a little. I baked the potatoes and gravy first for half hour. And I put onion powder in the gravy. I also marinated the pork with cajun seasoning and olive oil for a few hours before hand. Then I coated the pork with corn starch to hold the moisture inside. Pan fried it with a little olive oil enough to sear it. Then add to the potatoes. And I keep it closed the whole time. Bake another 30 min in 325F

      I made this for dinner tonight, but cut it down to 2 pork chops for the two of us. I made it per the recipe, except for the addition of poultry seasoning sprinkled on the chops (I like this on chops) and the potatoes (I thought they could probably use more than just salt and pepper). I used a mandolin to slice the potatoes and onions very thin. The potatoes were delicious, but after 25 minutes the 1/2 inch thick pork chops were dry and way overdone. I could not see baking this for the recommended hour and a half since the chops are browned, which par-cooks them. I would recommend checking for doneness early. I did have my doubts about "scalloped" potatoes with chicken broth, but they were so good I would make them on their own next time.

      Used no salt added chicken broth, did not add salt, after 1.5 hours meat was overdone and inedible and potatoes and onions merely okay. Waste of money on pork chops. I will never make this recipe again! Salinity was fine!

      I have made this recipe several times with a little tweaking. I use pork steaks instead of pork chops and I cook them for about 3 hours at 300 degrees. the pork chops come out fall apart tender and the potatoes are nice and yummy. Two pork steaks and potatoes give my wife and i enough for two meals. But these are really good. Brown your pork in a cast iron skillet that is really hot so you get the nice sear. I have also browned them on the grill and then put them in the oven which is really good as well.
