"This is a homemade recipe from my dad. Whenever I make these for someone, they fall in love with it and always request I make more. It fills your home with a wonderful smell and is the best way to have cheap chops go so tender they fall right off the bone. Serve with hot sauce and mashed potatoes." — tami

bone-in pork chops
seasoned salt to taste
this is tami, the recipe submitter...thankx for all the comoments, however for those who said it had not much flavor, i can see why, just by looking at the picture that someone put up on this. it looks NOTHING like what this is supposed to. i need to put one up i think:)
it should come out looking very very VERY juicy, the pan over half full with an orangy liquid to where the onions soak up this color and are almost melted. if the onions are piled on top and still white when you take it fromt he oven, you didnt add enough season all, or water. this dish does not need anything else but that, unless something else suits your palate:)
This one didn't "grab" us. It wasn't bad really, just not so good either. The chops were tender, but while they weren't lacking taste, they were kinda boring(?) 'Seemed like a recipe from a good cook who doesn't need to use recipes - which fits this one perfectly.
I consider myself a fairly decent cook, but I have never been able to solve the mystery of the pork chop. No matter how I cooked them, I could never produce anything but tough dried out chops. Until now! Thank you Tami & Ed. I can now cook pork chops that I almost have to arm-wrestle for! These truly are fall-off-the bone tender. Woo hoo!
The cooking method really does make the most tender pork chops my family has ever tasted. However, the seasoning is just so-so. I added garlic because I couldn't see how just onions and seasoning salt could give much flavor and I was right. The chops were perfect for the applesauce my family was craving but I think it could use a bit more flavor. I think adding onion soup as a previous reviewer stated would definitely give this the flavor I was craving. Thank you for the recipe, we will definitely be using the cooking method in the future, we will just be changing the seasonings.
**Update** My husband told me these were the best. He gave them 4.5 stars, so I updated my rating. The leftovers absorb all the "gravy" and the flavor comes through more. Who knew pork chops could taste better the next day?
This is fabulous! Follow the directions and like magic - juicy, tender and tasty pork chops/onions. This is my favorite pork chop recipe. I like to use 3/4" or larger bone-in. The recipe calls for season salt which is fine but add your own garlic, seasonings or whatever your taste buds conjure - I don't think you can screw it up. If you do use the dried onion soup as a seasoning use only a tsp or two, maybe with a little poultry seasoning (it works well here). But do not skimp on the real onions - vidalia are my favorite for this recipe. And guess what? At the end of the 1-1/2 hours, if you are not ready, just turn the oven off and leave them there; they will be even better after they rest. And don't bother making gravy out of the liquid - just pour it on as is.
I maid this for my famly last night and it was so good. My oldest son is three and don't eat meat and he ate this. I have to say this is one of the best ways to make pork chops they were so tender and just down right great.
YUMMMMY! I used this recipe "Method" to prepare 'My Own BBQ Chops' for dinner tonite! I have never had such Tender Pork Chops (besides mush soup chops in the crock pot) I season my chops with Emils Rib Rub, Worchestershire Sauce and top each chop with BBQ Sauce and spread it around. Followed the cooking instructions exactly and they were SUPERB!***** This is a KEEPER!!! Thank-you! for the recipe! ;)
These are the most tender pork chops I have ever had! We used barbeque sauce instead of water, which we all thought gave it great flavor. Even my picky seven year had seconds. Served with baked potatoes and green beans.
