One Pot Pork Chop Dinner

Russets potatoes and chunks of carrots and onion are cooked stovetop in a tomato-based sauce with seasoned pork chops or pork steaks, for an easy one pot meal.

One Pot Pork Chop Dinner

The Cajun is a big meat and potatoes man. I may have mentioned that before I think! He's just not that into vegetables, so he's always a little disappointed when the first of the year rolls around and I'm back to trying to eat more balanced, and maybe even a bit healthier than usual. Meaning more greens and vegetables.

I'm a little bit slow starting this year, as I've been under the weather since right before Christmas and let's just say it's been one thing after another. Haven't had much of an appetite, but I think I dropped a couple pounds as a result. I'm actually still on the mend today and frankly, still not feeling that well, so food hasn't been all that appealing to me. I guess I'll let him have his meat and potatoes way.

One pot meals are everybody's favorite and seem to be all the rage here lately, so this one is easy for me and a perfect fit for him. It's an oldie that uses condensed tomato soup for a sauce base, though I suppose if you're opposed, you can try some tomato sauce. I like it just the way it is.

Recipe: One Pot Pork Chop Dinner

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 45 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Creole or Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cooking oil (vegetable, canola, olive)
  • 4 to 6 bone-in pork chops or pork steaks cut to serving size pieces
  • 3 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 4 small carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup quartered and sliced sweet onion
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning (or other dried herbs)
  • 1 (10-3/4 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 1/2 soup can water
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

Combine first four ingredients and sprinkle on both sides of chops. Heat oil in large lidded skillet, and brown pork chops, in batches, adding additional oil if necessary; remove and set aside. Add vegetables to drippings in skillet sprinkle with Italian seasoning and toss to coat. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned.

Meanwhile, whisk together the tomato soup, water, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Nestle chops back into skillet with veggies, pour soup mixture over top and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover and simmer about 40-45 minutes or until chops and veggies are tender and cooked through.

Cook's Notes: You can use whatever your favorite dried herbs are. This time I actually used a Cuban combination, which contains onion, bell peppers, garlic, oregano, cumin and lemon peel.

  1. Good food, Mary. Don't worry about eating the "right" things. All things in moderation is the key. Hope you feel better...I guess your part of the US has the flu bug bad!

    1. Thanks, yes, flu has been bad here ever since that last extended freeze. Unfortunately, as of tonight, another extended freeze is rolling through. And just when I am beginning beginning to feel halfway normal.

  2. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well, Mary! I hope you feel better soon. I know this cold weather isn't helping!

    This recipe looks fabulous! I love one-pot meals and comfort food, and this is both rolled into one. I have to husband isn't the only meat and potatoes person around here!

    Can I also say that I love the way that you formatted your pictures in this post. That's much better than having to scroll through a ton of pictures like you have to do on so many blogs!

    I'll be trying this recipe sometime this week. Thanks, once again, for being a go-to blog for so many wonderful recipes. And again, I hope you feel better soon!

    1. You're welcome Linda! I'm trying to still show some steps but just a brief look.

      I'm on the mend I guess but wow, that was a rough round - it started with a virus, moved into the flu thanks to the grandkids, then a sinus infection and strep throat, all right in a row. Don't mind saying it kinda kicked me in the bootie!

  3. Ugh -- so sorry to hear you've had such a hard time. Made this yesterday morning -- seared the pork and dumped it all in the crock pot. It was delicious and really hit the spot as we waited to hear much of the white stuff we were going to get. Another wonderful recipe -- thanks, Mary!

  4. Tried w/sauerkraut, some left-over Andouille sausage, onions (always), grn peppers and thru in a little beer for sauce. As my husband is Bohemian-Czech & Southern, sauerkraut is an almost staple in our house. Seasoning: lemon pepper, careful w/the salt & let it cook; maybe a shake or 2 of hot sauce! He loves this!

  5. where to find lily white flour; we live in Texas in small Czech-German community. help!

    1. White Lily is available online from their website or from Amazon!

  6. Mary unlike you at my house I do the cooking. Tonight my wife said "those are the best Pork Chops you have ever cooked" I gave you the credit. Thank You for all you do!

    1. I'm so glad that she enjoyed them, but you sure could have taken credit. After all, you did the cooking! Thanks so much for letting me know she loved them. This is one of my favorite meals too!
