Sour Cream Pork Chops


Pork chops were super cheap a few weeks ago, $.99/lb, so you know I bought 10-15 lbs for the month. Now it is time to start cooking them! I remembered a recipe that I made a few weeks ago that I thought would work perfectly with pork instead of chicken. The recipe was simple so it was perfect for a busy night.

Verdict:

This worked really well with pork. I used this recipe just substituting pork chops for chicken breasts. My family liked that it was simple and not overly cooked. Watch your pork chop temperatures so they don’t dry out!

I served this dish with rice and brown beans with a green side salad.
