Season the pork with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook for 6 minutes or until browned on both sides (to prevent sticking, make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the pork).
Add the soup and water to the skillet and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the pork is done. Season to taste and serve.
Great Recipe with one change
I have made my own version of this recipe several times before seeing this one using the Cream of Onion soup. My version uses the Cream of Bacon soup. What could possibly be better for slow simmering pork chops than creamy bacon sauce????
This is probably the best pork chop recipe I have ever tried. Onion soup is a must. I prefer the onion soup to cream of celery, which was my usual go-to. I seasoned the chops and used sesame oil and added a splash of white wine to the soup and water. Additionally, I simmered the chops covered for 45 minutes. I thought 5 minutes didn't make sense. The chops melted in your mouth.
I had a hard time finding cream of onion but i found it in the next state over (DE)... Well worth the trip !!
Thank you Kim! So glad you enjoyed the recipe!, and that you were able to find the Cream of Onion!
I've also made this in my slow cooker. I really like the cream of onion soup for this recipe.
I have made this several times and my husband & I love it. I do season my chops with quite a bit of Garlic & Onion Powder. I also add pepper & salt. I simmer for about 20 min.
