Question Pork Chop Ideas

I have pork chops fresh from the butcher, but Im not sure what to do with them. I have an electric skillet with no stove or oven. nor do i have seasonings... if i sear the chops then cook them in the skillet with cream of chicken soup will they taste ok?

also is it possible to make dumplings using the soup after the pork chops are cooked?

any input would help!

Yes, that will work. I used to make something similar stovetop, but used cream of mushroom instead. I also added some minute rice and milk (to mix with the soup and soak into the rice). And a can of green beans minus the liquid also found its way into the pan. Gently simmer until done. Add more milk if necessary. It was a tasty one pot meal without a whole lot of fuss or seasoning, but a couple shakes of tabasco was a nice addition.

oops. Edited to correct the dang auto correct feature. Tabasco, not tobacco, lol.

Yes of course egg noodles will work fine. Personally, I kind of liked your first idea w/ dumplings. Be sure to put the skillet cover on if you make these. If you have a little onion, I would slice that in when you sear the chops.

Pork chops are one of my favorites.

No reason why not as long as there is enough liquid to cook the dumpling without drying out.

I love chops in cream of chicken soup. After I plate the chop I like to stir in a bit of sour cream to the soup before spooning over the chop.

Noodles, dumplings, cheese... basically all you are doing is cooking a casserole in your electric pan. You just want something that will cook relatively quickly (that's why I said minute rice instead of regular rice, so the chops don't overcook).

Another way to cook them is to gently fry them until they just start turning brown, about 4 minutes per side at 360' in your electric skillet, then add a package of pork ramen noodles, and some fresh mushrooms. cover and turn the heat to about 250' F. for another 7 minutes or so. You could add cream if you want, or milk. Thicken with a half teaspoon of cornstarch mixed with an equal amount of cold water.

You've got to get some seasonings in that home. There are so many things you can do with pork chops.
