Cajun Porkchops

Talk about S-I-M-P-L-E! Yes, this says Cajun, but I actually got the recipe from my mother-in-law who is a good ole, Southern, Mississippi girl. It is yummy and super easy, and not really spicy at all!


4- 1/2 inch thick pork chops
olive oil
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
salt and pepper, to taste
1 can of Chicken Gumbo soup


In a medium-sized, deep skillet, heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium-high heat. You'll want a very thin layer of oil to cover the bottom of pan. Salt and pepper both sides of pork chops and dredge in flour. Make sure the oil is hot, then place chops in skillet and brown 3-4 minutes per side until lightly browned.
Add can of Chicken Gumbo soup. In soup can, mix 1/2 can of water with 1 teaspoon of flour and mix well until all clumps of flour have dissolved. Add water/flour mixture to skillet. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 20-30 minutes until the chops are cooked through and the liquid from soup has condensed some. Ta-da!

Serve with salad and hot bread!

***I bet this would be equally as tasty with chicken instead of pork chops.
***I used Campbell's Chicken Gumbo soup.
