Ingredients & Variations
PORK: Boneless chops are used in this recipe, adjust the recipe if chops are thinner or thicker. Use like-sized pieces so they cook at the same rate! Bone-in chops could be used if that is what is available.
SAUCE: Campbell’s cream of mushroom or French onion condensed soup gives this dish its savory flavor and creamy texture. Pre-made onion dip is already seasoned but sour cream or Greek yogurt will also bring that creamy consistency and delicious flavor as well. Low salt options for the broth and soup are available, too.
