Country Pork Chops

Here is a very hearty winter dish, which is almost dinner in 1 pan.

you need:  4 - 6 pork chops; 3 -4 large potatoes; 2 large carrots; 3 ribs of celery; 1 onion;  1 can of cream of celery soup or cream of mushroom soup ( since I am very allergic to mushrooms, I use celery soup); 1/2 cup milk - (or cream if you prefer); and 2 Tbs of cooking oil, margarine, or bacon fat; and salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Grease a large oven proof dish.  Peel potatoes, onion, and carrots, and wash celery ribs. Slice all vegetables very thinly. Layer the slices in the baking dish, and season each layer with salt and pepper.
Heat a large skillet to medium high and add your favourite cooking fat.  Brown pork chops on each side, and season with salt and pepper. Place browned pork chops on top of layered vegetables. Reduce heat under skillet to medium low, and add can of soup. Stir to pick up pan drippings, and get a good colour. Add milk or cream, and stir well. Pour mixture over pork chops and vegetables. Cover tightly with foil, and bake for one hour.

This can also be put into a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours.
