Margie's Sour Cream Pork Chops

The Bunny Chef

"This is a recipe my Grandma Margie has been making for the past 40 years and it's our favorite pork chop recipe. They're kind of sweet and kind of sour, but absolutely wonderful! You can also substitute 6 ounces of cream cheese for the sour cream if that's what you have on hand, in which case you should bake the dish covered. These chops are great served with rice pilaf, mashed potatoes, or over pasta, with a salad on the side. Enjoy!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Mix the flour, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Press pork chops in the mixture to coat.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, and brown the pork chops on both sides. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together the chicken broth, vinegar, sour cream, sugar, savory, and bay leaves. Arrange the pork chops in the prepared baking dish. Pour sauce over the pork chops.
  4. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven.

I made this last night. Wasn't sure about the vinegar, but it came out tasting great. I did add rubbed sage to the flour mixture (because I like it on chops). I made 6 chops, used 1 14 oz can...

These pork chops are incredibly tender--and not at all overcooked, which could be the case after browning on the stovetop and baking for an hour. It must be the sour cream mix that protects the...

I love sour cream, and this was great. I have a hard time digesting meat if it isn't tender. This was so tender I cut it with a spoon. I served it with a spiach orzo. Exccellent...

Special thanks to Grandma Margie (and Shiloh) for sharing a great recipe! The sauce is wonderful, a mild sweet/sour flavor that complements the meat nicely. I didn't have summer savory but read...

Loved them! I thought the ingredients were a little odd at first but they turned out amazing. I'm not a huge pork chop fan but I will make these again. My husband was impressed!
