This oven baked pork chop recipe is from Gooseberry Patch’s Garfield… Recipes with Cattitude! I’m sharing this baked sour cream pork chops recipe with permission. I love having meals that I can prepare ahead of time and then just put them in the oven when it’s time to eat.
Oven Baked Pork Chop Recipe with Sour Cream and Potatoes
When the weather is nice, I like to go outside for a walk or enjoy a local attraction. The summers are so short in Vermont that I like to take advantage of as much nice weather as I can. The weather showed that Sunday was going to be fairly nice this weekend so I knew I was going to be out in the garden and enjoying a long walk.
I didn’t want to have to be rushed at the last minute making dinner so I decided to try this new oven baked pork chop recipe. If you’ve been searching for a baked sour cream pork chops recipe, you won’t believe how simple this one is.
Of course, knowing how Garfield likes to eat, I made a few tweaks to the recipe in the cookbook to lower the fat content. I started with lean pork chops. Instead of frying them in oil, I fried them in a non-stick pan which eliminated the need for oil. I used Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup which is lower in saturated fat and cholesterol. I used low-fat milk and instead of sour cream, I used plain nonfat Greek yogurt. The result was amazing. You can get the cookbook on Amazon for all of Garfield’s favorite recipes.
I know the photos aren’t that great, but trust me this was a huge hit at our house. It’s a great meal to put together when you want dinner on the table fast that still tastes great. You can also vary the type of cream soup or make your own instead of buying canned soup. You can even use boneless pork chops in the oven if you prefer. This is one of my favorite easy boneless pork chops recipes.
Pork chops with sour cream and mushroom sauce
So, I am a huge fan of mushrooms and add them to many of my recipes. I started this recipe using cream of mushroom soup which of course has mushrooms. But, if you are a fan of mushrooms, you can easily add another half cup of chopped mushrooms to the sauce when you’re making it. If the kids look at mushrooms and refuse to eat them, you could use cream of celery or cream of potato soup instead. The taste will be a little bit different but it will still be amazing.
What to serve with pork chops and cream gravy
Of course, if you have any type of sauce or cream gravy, it’s a good idea to have something to serve it over. This oven baked pork chop recipe uses a layer of potatoes on the bottom which is perfect for spooning the cream gravy over. But, if you’d prefer, you can leave the potatoes off ass the bottom layer and instead make mashed potatoes as a side dish. Because it was summer, I served homemade coleslaw as a side dish. It’s one of our favorites. But, you can really use any type of vegetable including this Blue Lakes Green Beans recipe.
Now, I love the taste of apples with pork. And, I often serve applesauce as a side dish for exactly that reason. But, you could also add chopped apples if you like the idea of pork chops with apples and sour cream. I would probably use a cream soup that was a bit more generic like cream of celery rather than something that had added mushrooms or garlic. Just chop the apples finely and add them before you bake it. This oven-baked pork chop recipe can be customized in many different ways.
