Pork Chops with Potatoes

French Food at Home on the food network is a great show. This is the first recipe. The second recipe will follow next week. These two recipes I had in my to try list for awhile. You know how it is you see something and bookmark it to try and things happen you do not make it when you want. Well, I have to say both recipes were really good and easy to prepare and I will make them again.

Pork Chops with Potatoes


4 fatty pork chops
2 cloves of garlic, sliced
salt and pepper
1 tbsp. butter
1 1/2 lbs. potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 onion, sliced
4 slices bacon
1/2 tsp. juniper berries (could not find)
1/2 cup white wine, cider, or beer ( used Dan's hard cider)
1/2 cup beef stock
handful of chopped parsley, garnish


Preheat oven to 325ยบ.
Take the pork chops and using a knife make slices in meat and insert a slice of garlic into it.
Season each chop with salt and pepper.
In large frying pan add butter and brown chops on both sides; about 3 minutes a side.
In a 9X13" baking dish arrange half the potatoes and onions on bottom.
Season with salt and pepper.
Place chops on top of potatoes and onions.
Arrange bacon over chops and if you have juniper berries scatter over the chops.
Cover with the remaining potatoes and onions.
Season again with salt and pepper.
Pour wine, cider or beer.
Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit over the potatoes and lay it onto the top.
Bake for about 1 1/2 hours.
At the half way mark add stock and cover again and continue to bake.
Sprinkle with parsley when placed on plate.
