Pork Chops, Peas and Potato Dish

I recently saw someone posting about their plan for meals, stating that they were looking for an easy way to have dinner at home.  Their plan was to make the same recipe each weeknight.  You know what? You don’t have to have Spaghetti every Monday and Tacos every Tuesday and Meatloaf every Wednesday to get supper on the table. How? Find recipes that make it easier. Like…

  • Prep ahead recipes that can be popped into the oven
  • One dish meals that do it all (like the one I’m sharing today)
  • Crock pot meals that you can forget about until suppertime!

Your life will be so much easier, and can I say it…also tastier!

Today I’m re-sharing an old family recipe I remember having as a child, fixing for my girls when they were home, and that my husband and I still enjoy today.
I love a recipe that doesn’t call for special ingredients.  I know I can open my pantry and find just what I need and pull supper together in a flash.  I recently made a casserole that’s an old recipe that falls right into that category! It’s called, Pork Chop, Peas and Potato Casserole. The pork chops get so tender while cooking in the tomato soup mixture, and the soup makes a great sauce for the vegetables.  I love these kinds of recipes where you pile everything in the dish, cover it, and you’re done!
You could put this together the night before and store it in the fridge until it’s time to bake it for dinner (just make sure the potatoes are all under the sauce so they don’t turn brown).  This is hearty and so good!  Add a salad and bread and the meal is complete!

Pork Chop, Peas and Potato Casserole

 4 Pork Chops
3-4 potatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 Cup onion, diced
1 can Tomato Soup
1 Can Milk
Frozen Peas
Salt and Pepper
Layer potatoes and onions in the bottom of a casserole dish. Add peas – as many as you think you’ll need.   Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Mix soup and milk.  Pour over top of vegetables.  Place pork chops on top and spoon some of the soup over the chops. Add salt and pepper to chops.   Cover and bake 1 hour.
The pork will be super tender and the potatoes and peas will have absorbed the sauce.  Yum!

When I made this this week I added roasted cherry tomatoes and it really bumped up the flavor and made it a little more special!
Have you been cooking any old family recipes?  Is there one you haven’t made in a while you need to pull out?  Sometimes those are the best!

  1. This sounds so good and so simple! My pork chops always tend to turn out dry so I’m looking forward to trying this recipe and having moist and tender pork chops for a change!

  2. Love ideas for quick weeknight suppers! Even though I work outside the home full-time, I still make supper every night and I would say the key is to plan ahead. I think through what meals I want to make and make sure when I go grocery shopping I get all the ingredients I need. I then make a master list of available meals, and choose what I make each night based on what is going on that day/evening, for example, if I need an especially quick supper or I have a little more time. I have to say that your recipe for Salisbury Steak has become one of our favorites!
