Number of Servings: 4


    1 tsp Garlic powder
    1 tbsp Pepper, black
    1 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Italian seasoning
    1 lb Pork, fresh, loin, top loin (chops), boneless, separable lean and fat, raw
    2 Yellow onions sliced thin
    1 can (303 x 406) Peas, canned drained
    2 medium (2-1/4" to 3-1/4" dia.) Potato, raw sliced
    1 can Canned Tomatoes
    0.52 cup Tomato Sauc


This also works with boneless chicken. Try different seasonings, and or vegetables. Easily adaptable to what you have on hand. I have never tried it with Italian Sausage, but that sounds good also.


Liberally salt and pepper pork chops, with any additional seasoning, and place in baking pan. slice onions less than a 1/4 inch thick. totally smother pork chops with onions. Place sliced potatoes on top of onions, covering them. Pour canned tomatoes onto potatoes along with sauce. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 350. Pork chops are done when they reach 160 degrees. My mom always said the pork chops were done when the potatoes were done....Pour drained canned of peas on top and replace aluminum foil. Cook an additonal ten minutes. I have often thought that adding zuchini, mushrooms, or other veggies would work well with this.

    Very good taste, I substituted fresh frozen green beans for the peas and put the beans under the tomatoes and sauce. - 3/16/08

    I usually add garlic, Italian seasoning, and whatever else strikes me. I am making it today with only 1 potato. I am adding a diced bell pepper, I need to use before it goes bad. Recipe is easily adaptable to changes. Why no stars?

    This recipe was very filling and delicious. My husband and I both loved it! I didn't buy lean anough pork chops so the calories were up there but I will definately make it again....with leaner meat. - 9/18/09

    I made this recipe but used V8 juice instead of tomato juice and green beans instead of peas. Also, next time I'll "bury" the beans under the tomatoes just so they'll be "in" the recipe better. Thank you!! - 3/8/08

    I always add Italian seasoning, and Garlic when making. At the time I posted this it wouldn't take Italian seasoning as an ingredient. I fixed it now.
