Smothered Pork Chops

This is a simple recipe that is soooo good! 

Smothering, or braising, tenderizes the pork chops and enhances the sauce flavor.  I use thick-cut pork chops and they turn out fork tender every time.  

The mushroom soup turns into a flavorful simmering sauce, just stir it in and let it bake.   Then in one hour you can dine on a comforting meal.  Serve with mashed potatoes and a fresh garden salad.  It doesn’t get any simpler, absolutely delicious!
