"This is a homemade recipe from my dad. Whenever I make these for someone, they fall in love with it and always request I make more. It fills your home with a wonderful smell and is the best way to have cheap chops go so tender they fall right off the bone. Serve with hot sauce and mashed potatoes."

this is tami, the recipe submitter...thankx for all the comoments, however for those who said it had not much flavor, i can see why, just by looking at the picture that someone put up on this. it looks NOTHING like what this is supposed to. i need to put one up i think:) it should come out looking very very VERY juicy, the pan over half full with an orangy liquid to where the onions soak up this color and are almost melted. if the onions are piled on top and still white when you take it fromt he oven, you didnt add enough season all, or water. this dish does not need anything else but that, unless something else suits your palate:) enjoy!


I consider myself a fairly decent cook, but I have never been able to solve the mystery of the pork chop. No matter how I cooked them, I could never produce anything but tough dried out chops. Until now! Thank you Tami & Ed. I can now cook pork chops that I almost have to arm-wrestle for! These truly are fall-off-the bone tender. Woo hoo!

The cooking method really does make the most tender pork chops my family has ever tasted. However, the seasoning is just so-so. I added garlic because I couldn't see how just onions and seasoning salt could give much flavor and I was right. The chops were perfect for the applesauce my family was craving but I think it could use a bit more flavor. I think adding onion soup as a previous reviewer stated would definitely give this the flavor I was craving. Thank you for the recipe, we will definitely be using the cooking method in the future, we will just be changing the seasonings. **Update** My husband told me these were the best. He gave them 4.5 stars, so I updated my rating. The leftovers absorb all the "gravy" and the flavor comes through more. Who knew pork chops could taste better the next day?
