Stove-Top Pork Chops

You can let this meal simmer while you do a few other chores.

6 pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick)
1/2 c all-purpose flour
2 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 large potatoes (abut 2 1/4 lbs)
5 med carrots, sliced 1/4 " thick
1 med onion, cut into wedges
2 c beef broth

Dredge pork in flour.  Heat oil in a large skillet; brown the chops on both sides.  Sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper.  Peel potatoes and cut into 3/4 inch cubes; add to skillet along with the carrots and onion.  Pour broth over all; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 40 to 50 minutes or until pork and vegetables are tender.  (I always have applesauce on the side with this dish).
Makes 6 servings


  1. Sounds delicious. I passed your recipe on to our son who just bought half a pig! Thanks. :-)

  2. What a wonderful family meal, Linda. It looks delicious and is easy to do. It gets no better than that :-). Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  3. Yes, be sure to stay in where you're safe and warm, and only venture out to get those 'easiest chicken parmigiana' ingredients once the ice has melted. :-) We won't get snow and ice melting until mid March. :-((
