Pork Chops - Delicious and Convenient

Quick, easy pork chops

I enjoy a pork roast or beef roast slowly cooked for several hours with potatoes and carrots as much as the next person.  Sometimes this works very well with my work schedule, however, there are other times when meal time is swiftly approaching and I am not prepared.  This is when pork chops are a good go to item.  I can thaw them out quickly by placing the package in warm water.  Then they can be pan fried on medium heat in a matter of minutes for a delicious meat.  Add a salad or your favorite cooked vegetables and you have a great meal in short order.

Convenient, one pot meal, starring pork chops

You're home from work and your children are home from school.  Homework and household chores are waiting plus you need a family meal.  Its a good time to try this convenient one pot meal.

Place frozen green beans and corn in the bottom of a large pot.  Arrange your pork chops on top of the beans, followed by golf ball size potatoes (cut large potatoes in half if needed) and carrots.  Add your favorite seasonings and enough water to cover the pork chops.  Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 1- 1  1/2 hours until the pork chops are tender while the family takes care of homework and other chores. 

Choose the quantities of vegetables and pork chops that you need to feed your family.  Also, this is a great time to involve the children as they can prep potatoes and carrots for this dish. 

Enjoy creating and sharing a family meal together!
